WE can now name the children who will take over key roles in our big Take-Over Day at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday when North Wales Crusaders come to town seeking their fourth win in a row.
Orlaith MacCafferty, a nine-year-old from St Anne’s RC Primary School, has her sights set on the top job. She wants to be chairman of the club and, guess what, the real chairman, Chris Hamilton, says she is welcome to it!
Others on duty on Sunday will be:
- PA announcer: Jessica Davies (9) from Audenshaw Primary
- Photographers: Evie Wood (7), Higher Failsworth Primary; Bailey Howell (14), Co-op Academy, Failsworth.
- Kit managers: Stanley Simpson (10), Friezland Primary; Harvey Hall (8), Oasis Academy, Limeside;
- Ground Safety officers: Amelie Betts (11), Friezland Primary; Theo Black (9), Ditton Primary, Widnes.
- Programme seller: Jasmine Tierney (7), St Margaret’s CE Primary School.
The children, whose ages range from seven to 14, will be given a boardroom briefing before starting their game-day duties with their respective “real” operators.
At 1.30pm the children and their counterparts will be photographed on the pitch and post-match there will be a presentation in the boardroom to staff and counterparts.
Children will be encouraged to be actively involved and chairman Chris said:
“The whole purpose is to make it real.”
