Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: “It is rare that opportunities such as this arise for fans to go behind the scenes and get up close to their clubs’ players. As we witnessed last year, for those that experienced just that, it was a truly memorable occasion. It was also embraced by the players in a competitive, yet light hearted manner which made for some brilliant footage.
“We’re sure the developments that have been made this season will add a little extra competition. After all, no one like losing and especially not to your local rivals.’’
