A CHURCH Hill youngster was over the moon when he was selected to be a mascot at Aston Villa’s match against Notts County on Tuesday (August 25).
Nathaniel Bryan, who turns eight next week, had an early birthday present when he got the chance to take part in every young Villa fan’s dream when he walked out at Villa Park with Jack Grealish.
The Moons Moat First School pupil, who plays for Redditch United under nines, was ‘really chuffed’ to have been chosen – particulary as the boys in claret and blue brought home a 5 – 3 win.
“It made his summer,” said proud Mum Tracy Pinfold. “It made my summer aswell – he is so lucky and all thanks to being part of JV Life.”
JV Life is the offical Aston Villa junior membership club from which the team’s mascots are selected.
