Nottingham Forest are pleased to announce that Robin’s Red member Ben Whadcoat has won the club’s ‘Walk out at Wembley’ competition.All Robin’s Reds members who purchased tickets for last week’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Preston were entered into the draw and Ben’s name was pulled out at random.
Ben, who is 11 years old, will now enjoy the experience of being an official mascot for an FA Cup Semi Final to be played at Wembley Stadium on 12/13 April.
After discovering he had won the fantastic prize, Ben said: “I couldn’t believe it when my dad told me I had won the Walk out at Wembley competition. It’s going to be an awesome day and I can’t wait. Thank you so much to Nottingham Forest for this amazing opportunity. It’s going to be something I’ll remember forever.”
Everyone at Nottingham Forest would like to congratulate Ben and hope he thoroughly enjoys his special day at the home of football.
