The package was for their home league game against Nantwich Town on Saturday 12 January.

Richard Cartmell from the Hawk T-X Programme was the lucky winner of the package and last Saturday took his family to watch the game and, more importantly, let his five year-old son Sebastian be the Club’s mascot for the day.

Here, Richard gives the highlights of their afternoon at a very cold Kellamergh Park:

“Sebastian had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of it along with his younger brother Zach. The enthusiasm shown by Tom Hutton (Community Officer) and his commitment to ensure Seb enjoyed every aspect of the day was very impressive. We were also glad that he tired him out by running over almost every blade of grass at Kellamergh Park!

“Tom’s efforts were complimented by the warmth of the welcome and hospitality shown by Vickie Bamber (Commercial Manager) to ensure we enjoyed the match in comfort. In addition, we were grateful to Peter Hardy (Chairman of the Supporters Club or ‘Penalty Pete’ as we used to call him when he refereed my junior football games) for providing insight into the club’s history and future aspirations.

“As we live in Ansdell, we were aware of AFC Fylde but had never watched a game or been to the ground. As a consequence of our visit on Saturday we hope to return as a family to support AFC Fylde in their future Evo-Stik Premier League efforts.

“Before Sebastian went to bed after the game he was asked what his favourite part of the day was, to which he responded - “The best part was playing on the pitch… and wearing the kit… and Tom… and meeting the players… and walking through the tunnel and… zzzzzz”
