Zack was the recipient for the first of this season’s Kicks at Watford, a club we have been providing mascot packages for many years now. We work in partnership with Watford Mencap, who nominate young football fans who would benefit and enjoy a day out at the club on matchday.
Zack went along to the lunchtime match with his family, to be a Watford team mascot, and the day started with him meeting the players to get their autographs and to have photos taken with them. Following this was the chance to go out onto the pitch at Vicarage Road and play with Harry the Hornet, which Zack particularly loved, before leading the teams out onto the pitch, ready for kick-off. Zack walked out with Almen Abdi, took part in the Fairplay handshake between the teams, then came back to meet up with his family again to watch the match.
Many thanks to Kristian at Watford FC and Sarah from Watford Mencap.
