De­lighted to be cup mas­cot

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A SCHOOL­BOY be­came the envy of mil­lions around the world when he walked out the Ar­se­nal foot­ball team at the FA Cup Fi­nal.

Frankie Con­nolly, from Uxbridge, was a mas­cot dur­ing the Wem­b­ley fi­nal on Satur­day May 30 af­ter dad Mark, a sea­son ticket holder at The Emi­rates, won a club com­pe­ti­tion. Ac­cord­ing to mum Michelle, it was a day the 10-year-old, from Southall Close who at­tends Botwell Ro­man Catholic Pri­mary School in Hayes, would never for­get.

She said: “He was highly de­lighted. He felt he’d won first prize be­cause he’s an Ar­se­nal sup­porter and he went out with Arsene Wenger. It was a dream come true for him.”
