Day To Remember For Mascot

Seven-year-old Young Seasider Keigan Nelson had a day to remember on Saturday when he led out the team at Charlton Athletic as the official team mascot. 

Keigan, who has been a season-ticket holder from a few months old, attends matches with all his family but certainly won't forget his memorable experience at The Valley in a hurry.
 
"I had a fantastic day," he said after the game. "The best bit was walking out with Matt Gilks who was really nice to me."
 
Keigan's name was drawn at random to lead the team out as mascot from over 1,500 Young Seasider members. Other lucky winners this season have included:
 
Ben Winnemore - Preston NE
Abbie Carroll - Doncaster
Seth Valentine - Middlesbrough
Thomas Reed - Bournemouth
Sebastian Broome - Millwall
Finn Needham - Huddersfield
 
To be in with a chance of winning the unique experience of being an away mascot, all you need to do is become an official Young Seasider. It costs just £5 for the season and a form can be downloaded here
