A newly-designed mascot for Maidenhead United FC was unveiled on Saturday as a surprise for its young designer.
Daniel Roberts, from Fotherby Court, entered a competition held by the York Road-based club in February to create a new-look Yorkie, the team mascot.
Eight-year-old Daniel was surprised while he was at his Saturday morning training session at the club, winning a family ticket to the first game of the season, a Maidenhead United football shirt and a six-week course of football coaching.
His mum Nikki, said: “He spent hours designing it, rubbing it all out and then starting again.
“He kept asking when the winner would be announced – he’s very excited.
“Daniel loves football, we all come down to watch Maidenhead and he has been at these session since October and just loves them.”
