App-Frod Juniors U8s enjoy behind-the-scenes experience on Saturday

14 November 2017

Local junior football side App-Frod Juniors U8s enjoyed a behind-the-scenes pre-match experience ahead of Saturday's 1-0 victory over Bristol Rovers.

Nine players in the side, along with the two coaches Stuart and Rick, we able to gain access to the otherwise restricted areas of the stadium.

The 30-minute long tour saw the group visit the playing staff areas of the stadium. Beginning with the after match press room, the junior side were also allowed access into the boot room, where they picked their favourite designs, before meeting the players who wear them.

The final stop was to the home dressing room with kick-off against Bristol Rovers around 120 minutes away. The players took time pose for photographs in that time before the tour came to an end.

Further to that, the side were able to be a part of the pre-match build-up, flag bearing both sets of teams onto the pitch, along with the presentation party, who were involved in the remembrance service ahead of kick-off.

We now have very limited availability remaining for flag bearing in the 2017-18 campaign. If you'd like to get your local grassroots side involved, please email

Following the visit, the team's manager Stuart said: "Thanks for today (Saturday). The kids loved it and (it was a) fantastic experience for the boys. Great result..."
