Flag Bears at Old Trafford
Another reward trip and special memory was created for ten Year 9 and 10 students who had shown a GREAT start to the year with their stamps and planners for classroom engagement.
For the Europa League game vs Astana FC, the students were flagbearers on the hallowed turf before kick-off to hold the centre flag as the players lined up before kick-off.
Of the experience, student Holly said: “The experience was a once in a life time opportunity, to step out on the pitch at old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams, not many people get to step out onto the pitch besides players, managers and refs! It was honestly amazing and I am very grateful to be given such an opportunity, massive thanks to Matt and the Manchester United Foundation”.
