Forest Green v Newport

We went to Forest Green Rovers today to see the Boxing Day encounter with Newport County. Reggie was one of the mascots.  Here he is (in the black hat) walking out with the players and the other mascots.
Both teams are riding high in the Conference so this is an important game. Here's Reggie lined up next to the officials before the start of the big game.
The expectant crowd : Joe, Reggie, Will, Freddy, Peter, Mary and Dad.  It was a good game, but Forest Green lost 1v2...
Joe met Santa and picked up a few sweeties...
