Win the chance of a lifetime to walk out with Grimsby Town at Wembley
IT'S EVERY football fan's dream... walking out of the tunnel at Wembley.
And we have teamed up with Grimsby Town FC to offer seven lucky readers the chance of a lifetime – to lead the Grimsby Town players out onto the pitch at the FA Trophy Final on Sunday, March 24.
The winners – who must be aged 7 to 11 – will act as player escorts on the big day, and will each receive a full replica kit to mark the special occasion.

Two people who know for a fact what it feels like to walk out the tunnel with your footballing heroes are the mascots for last Saturday's game against Kidderminster Harriers, Ben Farrant and Charlie Robinson.
Ben, 13, of Middlethorpe Road, Cleethorpes, said: "I got to be a mascot as a birthday present and it's the best gift I've ever had – it doesn't get much better than this if you're a Town fan.
"You get to see the dressing rooms, meet the players, and walk out onto the pitch with the team and have a kick-about before the match.
"It's such a great feeling when you walk out the tunnel and all the fans cheer – the atmosphere is amazing.
"You get a tiny taste of what it must be like to be a professional player.
"I think the only thing that could beat it would be doing it at Wembley.
"I'd love to see the dressing rooms and walk out at our national stadium, and see the team I've supported since I was five years old lift the cup.
"I'm absolutely certain they'll win – up the Mariners!"
Charlie Robinson, 7, lives in Brigg and has supported Grimsby Town – where his dad was brought up – since he was four years old. He said: "Going out with the players is a bit scary and I was quite nervous but when you get out there, it feels amazing.
"The only thing better would be doing it at Wembley, seeing the arch as you walk out with all your favourite players."
Charlie is a decent footballer himself, but most self-respecting Town fans wouldn't believe who he plays for.
"I can't believe I'm saying this but I play for Scunthorpe at the moment, but hopefully, this won't be the last time I set foot on the pitch at Blundell Park.
"My favourite player is Craig Disley and hopefully when he retires, I'll take his place."
