It’s day 11 of our countdown, only two more announcements and then it’s Christmas! Today we’re delighted to announce that we have managed to persuade a West End star to read out the teams on New Year’s Day.
You may remember Dan from when he was mascot at the Bradford game earlier in the season, where he received one of the biggest cheers of the season when he scored a goal at the London Road End. Well since his day of stardom at the Abax, he has gone on to even bigger and better things. During the last week it was announced live on the BBC One Show that he would be appearing in the starring role of The Christmasaurus at the Hammersmith Apollo over the Christmas period.
We are delighted to welcome Dan back on Free Kicks Day, where he will have the important job of reading out the teams from pitchside ahead of the match, alongside matchday announcer David Fuller.
