A Pinkneys Green man will fulfil every football fan’s dream by gracing the hallowed turf of Wembley this Sunday.
Colin Bell, who lives with wife Jane, and daughter Amelia, will be playing in a special match in the build-up to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final between Peterborough United and Chesterfield.
Employees were entered into a random draw to win the chance to play in the Johnstone’s Sixes match before the main event.
“This is an opportunity and experience that money can’t buy,” said Colin, a key account manager.
“As a child everyone wants to go to Wembley and it is an unbelievable feeling to have the chance to step on the pitch let alone play a game.”
Mr Bell also played in the fixture at the stadium two years ago, though he says that apart from that, he has not worn a pair of football boots since school.
