ACCRINGTON STANLEY FAMILY FUN DAY: MOTHER'S DAY SPECIAL

Get your mum involved at the big game this Saturday!

7 March 2018

It's Mother's Day on Sunday 11th March - so we're dedicating our Accrington Stanley family fun day to all the mums out there! And here's your chance to get involved!

Spring is just around the corner (we hope!) and we're looking forward to welcoming you to Kenilworth Road for our next family fun day ahead of our match against Accrington Stanley.

As usual, we'll have loads of additional entertainment for all the family, including our inflatable goal, football target game, face painting, free giveaways and another appearance from the terrific Hillborough School Choir. 

And with Mother's Day the following day, we're going to be making a fuss of the mums out there - so we're looking for nominations to help us find mums to take part some special activities...

Flag Bearers

Our flag bearers help to add some colour and atmosphere to matchdays - and normally it's our younger supporters who help to welcome the team onto the pitch. But for our match against Accrington, we're looking for some mums to help. All you have to do to nominate your mum is to email us with their name and a telephone number, along with why you think they'd make a great flag bearer. 

Please note that we only have space for eight flag bearers - so we will be contacting the nominated mums on a first-come first-served basis. You'll need to have a match ticket already, and be able to get to the ground by 2:30pm on the 10th March.

*Update 3pm on Wednesday 7th March: We have already reached the maxiumum number of applicants, so this offer is now closed.

Interview a Player

Our 'When I was a Boy' programme feature has been very popular this season, where supporters who have purchased a Happy Harry's Lunch Bag are put into the hat to interview a player ahead of a match. 

To celebrate mothers' day, we're looking for one lucky mum to conduct this interview ahead of the Accrington Stanley match. If you'd like your mum to be entered into the draw, please email us with their name and contact details, and we'll enter them into the draw. Mums must have a match ticket, and be available to take part in the interview from 2pm on the 10th March.

*Usually this interview is conducted with a player but as this is such a special occasion and family means so much to him, manager Nathan Jones has agreed to take time out of his pre-match preparations to be interviewed by the lucky winning mum!

(Applications for this one must be made by 5pm on Wednesday 7th March)

Half Time Hot Shots Mother's Day Special

We're looking for mums to take place in our special Mothers' Day Half Time Hot Shots contest. If you're a mum, and you'd like to take part, or you'd like to nominate your mum, please apply via our online form before 1pm on Thursday 8th March. Please note that mums will need to have a match ticket and to be ready to take part during the half-time break. 

As with all half-time hotshots participants, we'd recommend wearing suitable footwear. Apply now.
