Appleby Frodingham U12s enjoy tour and matchday flag package experience

27 September 2018

Local junior football side Appleby Frodingham U12s enjoyed a behind-the-scenes pre-match experience ahead of Saturday's 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town.

Thirteen players in the side, along with their manager, were able to gain access to the otherwise restricted areas of the stadium.

The 45-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 referee's room and the boot room, before meeting the players who wear them.

The final stop was to the home dressing room with kick-off against Shrewsbury Town less than two hours away. The players took time pose for photographs and to sign autographs in that time before the group congregated outside the player's entrance to wait for the remaining players to arrive.

Further to that, the side were able to be a part of the pre-match build-up, taking part in our brand-new flag package (for further details, click here) as the two teams emerged from the tunnel.
