Young Truro football fan leads out Welsh team at international match
3:59pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in Sport
One lucky young Truro football fan had a chance to walk out at Cardiff City Stadium with the Wales international team, before their FIFA World Cup Qualifying match versus Serbia.
Isaac Murray, aged 9 from Shortlanesend, walked out with Celtic’s Joe Ledley before Wales suffered a 3-0 defeat thanks to his role as a McDonald’s player escort.
Isaac won the chance after entering a national competition via McDonald’s website mcdonalds.co.uk/kickstart.
He said “It was amazing to walk out onto the pitch with the Wales team. I couldn’t wait to meet the players and see the stadium!”
Ian Rush, MBE and McDonald’s head of Welsh Football, added: “The atmosphere was electric despite the result and I’m sure the player escorts walking onto the pitch had a fantastic time. The McDonald’s football programme is about creating opportunities for people to get involved in grassroots football and to give youngsters footballing opportunities they will never forget. Hopefully this was one of them!”
