My day as a mascot: Carlisle United

by Samson and Delilah

Kieran leads the Black Cats out in their FA Cup clash with the Cumbrians.

When I was mascot I got to meet

Gus Poyet, Wes Brown, Steven Fletcher and lots more of the Sunderland players, also Malcolm who took very good care of me. Thank you Malcolm.

My favourite part of being a mascot was

Playing football with Wes Brown, Samson and Delilah, it was the best time of my life, I really loved it.  I also loved walking out onto the pitch holding Wes Browns hand and waving to all the Sunderland fans who were cheering.  I am really happy that we won the game, my dad said I was a lucky mascot.

Before the game I

I was given a new strip and then I got to meet all the players in the dressing room and get their autographs. I also met Gus Poyet who shook my hand and asked me lots of questions about myself, he was very nice.

I liked meeting Samson and Delilah because

I got to play football with them before the game started and they were really excellent at football and were very friendly and fun.

And finally ....

Thank you to SAFC for making a special dream come true and to all the staff who kept giving me and my little brother lots of sweets.  It was my best day ever.
