Fleetwood Town welcomed Thomas Hudson to Highbury on Saturday afternoon for a special mascot experience, which was made possible by Fleetwood Beach Wheelchairs.
Ten-year-old Thomas Hudson carried the match ball onto the pitch, using a state-of-the-art beach wheelchair paid for by the general Fleetwood public, and had a great time with the six other mascots on the day.
Not only this, but the Pear Tree School student, who is a regular user of the charity’s truly accessible beach for wheelchairs, was gifted with a match-worn shirt by Jordan Rossiter – the shirt he wore whilst walking the teams out the tunnel!
Fleetwood Beach Wheelchair trustee, Karen Murdoch said: “Very few places in the UK can claim to have truly accessible beaches for wheelchair users. Thanks to the incredible generosity of the public, we are able to say Fleetwood is somewhere which welcomes and supports everyone to enjoy our fabulous coastline.”
