Something our local team, Nottingham Forest, are doing is approaching all the local schools to give away free shirts and tickets, possibly hoping enough of them become lifelong fans (and I'm not known for my cynicism). So tonight we went along to pick up said shirt and meet some of the team and had a really good time! "Take a photo of this..", "take a photo of me here..", "let me hold that trophy!" (and that was just the players!)
We have our tickets for the Wigan game and my boy was fizzing on his shirt on the walk back to the car. I can't wait!
