Three of our youngest players will be mascots for Peterborough United today courtesy of the Free Kicks Foundation.
Nick Surridge, Daniel Monaf and Jensen Maughan will meet the players, have a tour of the stadium and warm-up with the players on the pitch. Then, the boys will walk out with their heroes just before kick off as the Posh face FA Cup Giant Killers Bradford City.
A big thank-you to The Free Kicks Foundation. Today is the second time that one of the young players from Peterborough’s deaf teams has had the honour of mascotting for the Posh.
Good luck to the Posh and to the mascots!
