So­phie Fla­herty, five, had the ex­pe­ri­ence to never for­get dur­ing the event over the week­end amid huge crowds.

Her de­lighted mum Sian Ham­mond said So­phie rode on Xolo’s back for about five min­utes along Stan­ley Street af­ter a mem­ber of The Gi­ants team ap­proached and asked her if she would like to take part.

She said it would make a ‘fab­u­lous’ mem­ory for them to en­joy for years to come.

Sian said: “So­phie was over the moon and so ex­cited that she was one of the lucky ones to be picked out from all the chil­dren around us.

“It was so un­ex­pected, such a sur­prise!

“It’s def­i­nitely a mem­ory that’ll be en­joyed for many years.

“To see Xolo’s fea­tures up close was ab­so­lutely amaz­ing.”
