Wonga Make Mascot’s Dream Come True

Club sponsor, Wonga, named a special boy as their mascot for the Barclay’s Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday.

Elliot Smith, aged 7 from Cramlington, was specifically chosen to be the Magpies’ mascot for his outstanding achievements and involvement to the Foundation’s educational course, Family Football.

Elliot was named ‘Young Learner of the Year’ at last week’s Family Football event which saw 150 families from Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside and Northumberland attended the sixth annual celebration at St James’ Park.

United’s under 18’s goalkeeper, Freddie Woodman and Newcastle- born, Jamie Sterry were in attendance, taking centre-stage to congratulate all participants. In particular, Elliot Smith.

Elliot’s mum, Emma, spoke of Elliot’s experience:

 “It exceeded all of Elliot’s expectations!

“He was over the moon to walk out with Jack Colback who was really nice!”

So far this year, the Foundation has delivered 38 Family Football Courses in local schools and community venues. A total of 712 people completed a course or taken part in one of the family learning workshops.
