Our first kick at Rotherham United and the New York Stadium saw 14 year old Ben as our mascot for the day. Ben was nominated by the Rotherham Organisation for Downs Syndrome.
We met Ben in the main reception of the stadium where he met former Peterborough United and current Rotherham United player, Lee Frecklington, and had a photo taken with him. Ben was then taken upstairs where he had a meal along with his family, before heading out on to the pitch for a kick about and then led the team out ahead of the match.

Ben’s mum told us afterwards that he had a fantastic time, thank you to all at Rotherham United for their hospitality.
