Town mascot teams up with SpongeBob SquarePants!
Our very own Happy Harry helped SpongeBob SquarePants lead a team of 10 mascots from Football League clubs to a new Guinness World Records title this week.
The Guinness World Record was attempted as part of filming for Nick Kicks, Nickelodeon’s new family football show covering The Football League.
The new Nick Kicks show premieres at 8am on Saturday 6th February on Nicktoons. It will be broadcast every Saturday morning for the rest of this season until after the Play-Off Finals, before returning for the entirety of Season’s 2016/17 and 2017/18.
Setting the Guinness World Records title for ‘the highest number of football (soccer) penalty kicks scored by a team of mascots in one minute’ with 16 shots scored, Happy Harry and SpongeBob was joined by Billy the Badger (Fulham), Captain Blade (Sheffield United), Digger the Dog (Dagenham & Redbridge), Haydon the Womble (AFC Wimbledon), Nelson the Dog (Portsmouth), Rammie (Derby County), Robyn the Robin (Charlton Athletic) and Wolfie & Wendy (Wolverhampton Wanderers).
Charlton Athletic’s Sir Valiant served as ball boy for the event with Peter Burrow (Peterborough United), Gully (Brighton & Hove Albion), Ewie (Derby County) and Clarence the Dragon (Northampton Town) cheering the team onto victory.
Presented by Rachel Stringer and Roman Kemp, Nick Kicks is a brand new live-action football programme covering all 72 clubs of The Football League. The series features highlights across each week's Football League matches, as well as the more humorous moments from the week and a look ahead to upcoming games.

SpongeBob SquarePants himself will feature in the series as he takes on various club mascots in weekly challenges.
The series is produced by Nickelodeon UK and launches on Saturday 6th February at 8am on Nicktoons.
