Wembley thrill for Hendy-Isaac
LUCKY Harrison Hendy-Isaac, from Cheltenham, had the experience of a lifetime when he walked out at Wembley Stadium alongside England's Phil Jagielka, after winning the opportunity to be a McDonald's Player Escort, ahead of the home nation match against Scotland.
It was a fantastic day out for Harrison, aged 10, who walked out in front of a 80,485 strong crowd to see England win 3-2.
Harrison, who played with Gotherington Jaguars Under-11s last season, won the Player Escort place after entering a national competition said: "It was so exciting to walk out with all of the England players.
"The atmosphere was incredible and it was great to see them win!"

McDonald's and The FA have been Community Partners since 2002 and have worked together to help young footballers shine by creating more opportunities for children to get involved in football.
Through this partnership McDonald's and The FA will support 400,000 volunteers, 6,000 grassroots clubs and create a total of 30,000 qualified coaches by 2014.
The partnership is also working towards the objective of helping 75 per cent of all youth clubs achieve FA Charter Standard status before the end of 2014, which ensures grassroots clubs are safe, supportive and fun places for young people to enjoy playing football.
Sir Geoff Hurst, McDonald's director of football, who lives in Cheltenham, said: "Walking out onto the pitch at Wembley Stadium is something that I have done many times and it is an unbelievable experience."
The 1966 World Cup winner added: "The atmosphere at Wembley was fantastic as it always is when we take on the Scots. "The McDonald's football programme is about creating opportunities for people to get involved in grassroots football and to give youngsters footballing opportunities they will never forget.
