Mas­cot video hit

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS -

A video of the com­mu­nity out­reach man­ager at Hamil­ton Ac­cies giv­ing a team talk be­fore Fri­day night’s clash with Celtic is prov­ing to be an in­ter­net hit.

Over 1700 peo­ple have watched the hi­lar­i­ous link that sees Garry King en­ter the play­ers’lounge – and in­spire his‘team’of mas­cots.

None other than Min­nie and Mickey Mouse, Dora the Ex­plorer, Peppa Pig and the club’s very own Hammy the Ham­ster are given a pep talk.

Garry de­liv­ered his speech on Fri­day night be­fore Ac­cies took on Celtic in the Scot­tish Premier League, and he tells the mas­cots that“this is a big, big match”and to re­mem­ber and“keep it tight at the back”.

He then asks the mas­cots to nod if they un­der­stand be­fore spurring them on with a “They dae the hud­dle – let’s have a cud­dle. Come on!”

The team talk was ahead of Ac­cies in­tro­duc­ing their new-look mas­cot Hammy the Ham­ster, who has had a facelift af­ter 20 years.

Garry told the Ad­vertiser:“it was just a bit of fun on the night Ac­cies played host to Celtic – a wee video to cheer our fans up fol­low­ing a 4-1 de­feat.”

You can watch the video on the Hamil­ton Ad­vertiser’s web­site or Face­book­page.
