A young boy got the surprise of a lifetime last week, when he found out he had been selected by children’s charity Sports Connections Foundation (SCF), from thousands of children across the Country who took part in our Prokick Schools Challenge.
Announced in a special assembly, Joseph aged 11, from Hillcrest Primary school Downham Market, was told he would be walking out ahead of the England and Brazil players as a flag bearer in front of a sold out Wembley Stadium audience! A chauffeur driven car took him and his family to Wembley where was watched by 90,000 fans, plus millions watching the game live all around the world - and all his excited school friends of course!
Joseph said; “I am in total shock”, when SCF Co Founder Junior McDougald announced his name in the assembly. “I can’t believe this is actually happening to me!” A huge England fan, Joseph also said “its the best day of my life and I'm not even there yet”.
Joseph was picked from thousands of children across the UK who took part in our Prokick Schools Challenge, one of the most exciting and free fundraising challenges in the country endorsed by a host of England and Premier league stars.
