A Visit to AFC Mansfield Football club in Forest Town
12th October 2019
Thank you to AFC Mansfield who invited pupils and families of KS2 to come and enjoy a Vase cup football match against Hanley.
The club made us feel very welcome. A special thank you to Mr Toby Saunders who is both a parent at the school and member of the AFC Mansfield club. He really looked after us. We watched a fantastic nail biting match which went into extra time! At the beginning of the game pupils walked with the players onto the pitch. At half time the pupils enjoyed a penalty shoot out and at full time all pupils were given a special goody bag.
It was a lovely afternoon, enjoyed by all. But best of all AFC Mansfield beat Hanley 2-1 - the winning goal scored in the very last minute of extra time! Thank you again AFC Mansfield.
