CHARLIE Garrett may be the luckiest 10-year-old in Gosport as he has landed himself a special place in today’s FA Trophy final.

The keen Gosport Borough fan will lead the team out as their mascot after winning the club’s prize draw during last week’s game.

Charlie, the only Borough season ticket holder under the age of 11, was excited to have his name picked out.

He said: ‘I was really amazed, and I couldn’t believe it.’

Mum Julie added: ’I’m just so excited for him, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.’

His parents, along with grandad Dave, will be following him on his journey to Wembley.

The Gosport Falcons player cannot wait to walk onto the pitch and hopes to come out with favourite player Nathan Ashmore.
