Directions
For today’s celebrations there were freebies to be had – in the form of soccer balls - and autographs to be gained as fans and supporters gathered at Midland Park on what has to be the best day for weather this week. Kids were encouraged to try their ‘feet’ against goal keep Glen Moss in the Sony Goal as players mingled with the crowd signing anything from balls to T-shirts. There was even the odd photo opportunity to be taken advantage of.
