My Day as Mascot: Southampton

by Junior Black Cats

One lucky fan led the team out to a cup win over the Saints.

After being mascot for Sunderland's FA Cup clash with Southampton 12 year-old Hannah listed the players she got to meet - they included: John O’Shea , Seb Larsson, Fabio Borini ,Connor Wickham, Vito Mannone, Jack Colback , Marcus Alonso, Lee Cattermole, Ki Sung-Yeung, Ondrej Cuellar and Santiago Vergini.

She revealed that her favourite part of the day was walking out of the tunnel with John O’Shea and being able to kick around with him before the game - John also told Hannah that she would be a lucky mascot - and she was because the team won 1-0!
