14th February - Cheltenham Marriotts School Reach Semi-Final At the end of January, a team from Marriotts School in Stevenage headed off to Colchester United, after beating other teams from the local area to represent Stevenage FC, at the English Football League Trust Regional Girls Cup playoff. After an impressive group stage, the Year 11 girls found themselves in a semi-final match against Luton Town FC and despite a really close game, Luton would inflict defeat with a 1-0 win, which was only the third goal that the girls from Marriotts conceded all day. Luton would also go on to win the final and now progress to the national stage of the competition. Matchday & Mascot Packages Available For every home game, the Foundation and Stevenage FC offer matchday and mascot packages for children aged 5-12. Matchday packages can include a one hour coaching session at The Academy with Foundation coaches, followed by the chance to take a penalty on the hallowed Lamex turf, tickets in the West Stand to watch the match and a complimentary packed lunch for all children that attend. These packages start at £15 per child and all bookings require a minimum of 10 children and maximum of 20 children per package. Being a mascot is a great way to experience a VIP day at The Lamex. The mascot will get a unique look behind the scenes and meet all their heroes in the dressing room as well as warming up on the pitch before the game. Mascot packages are available for home and away games and include a packed lunch, complimentary tickets for the mascot and one adult with the option to purchase additional tickets for other family members and a Stevenage FC Foundation goodie bag. To cap it all off, the mascot will walk out with the players at the beginning of the game and take part in the pre match fair play handshake. Mascot packages have been reduced for the 2016/17 season and are now just £100! If you’d like to find out more about the packages please call 01438 222222 or email Tom Farr via [email protected] New Website Coming Soon!
