We are so proud to announce that we have a mini celebrity among our Year 6’s after a certain Football fixture last Saturday….
Our very own Super Striker Max Nixon was the official mascot on Saturday 17th October for the Ipswich Town V Huddlesfield Town fixture at Portman Road.
Not only did Max get a VIP tour of the changing rooms, press room and pitch side ‘dugout’ before being part of the warm-up/ training session, he also got to wear his kit with pride and walk out onto the pitch with all of the players!
This morning, we got Max to show us all in Superstar assembly the goodies that he was also given to make his experience even better!
As you can see in the picture of Max in our new school kit, he thoroughly enjoyed what a great day it was and his highlight was,
“Hearing and seeing all of the fans as I walked out onto the pitch with Chambers, my favourite player”
Max has almost filled a book with player autographs, had a special mention and picture in the official program, got a framed and signed copy of that program, a plaque with his name on from the club, a signed and framed ITFC ‘Game Momento’ flag AND a letter from the captain Luke Chambers – talking about how important training and healthy eating is, to keep up such high level fitness.
What a great experience for such a great ambassador for our school – let’s hope there are even more amazing stories like this in the future!
