Park Tigers U11s enjoy flag bearing experience

15 May 2018

Local junior football side Park Tigers U11s enjoyed a flag bearing experience ahead of the Iron’s 2-2 draw with Rotherham United.

The team took advantage of a group booking package for the day and were a part of the pre-match schedule, with Sky Sports featuring the game live on television.

14 players from the side enjoyed the experience, as both teams entered the field of play prior to the game - just one of a number of sides who have been able to take part during the course of the campaign.

They were then present as a Michael Ihiekwe own goal and a first strike for Cameron McGeehan made it honours even going into the play-off semi-final second leg.

Following the visit, one of the team’s parents Barry Coombs said: “Just want to say a massive thank you, the lads loved it!”
