Bottesford Lovelle U11s enjoy tour and flag bearing experience

11 December 2018

Local junior football side Bottesford Lovelle U11s were able to form a guard of honour for both the Iron and Gillingham on Saturday.

Twelve players from the side were present to enjoy the experience, which saw them allowed onto the pitch prior to kick-off for a flag bearing experience.

They welcomed both teams onto the pitch, taking advantage of group booking prices, before enjoying the encounter against the Gills from the Lincolnshire Co-op Family Zone of the SPB Stand.

Prior to the game, the side took advantage of a behind-the-scenes tour opportunity, which allowed them into otherwise restricted areas of the stadium. The group were able to see the Iron's press room, before they gained access to the club's boot room. 

The final stop was the home dressing room, where they were able to meet the players and get a number of selfies with their favourites before awaiting the arrival of the remaining players and the Iron's opposition from outside the player's entrance.

Following the experience, Keil Leisk messaged: "(They) loved it. They got all the red t-shirts from the players, which was a good touch too.

"Just want to say a huge thanks to yourself, Corey Harkins and Scunthorpe United for the hospitality at the weekends game vs Gillingham FC. Lads all thoroughly enjoyed it, even getting an insight into Gillingham Football Club team bus aswell! Thank you from Bottesford Lovelle Under 11s."

We are now sold out of flag bearing packages for the 2018-19 campaign. We do, however, have very limited availability for our brand new flag package. Click here for more details.
