Congratulations are in order for Isle of Wight’s 11-year-old Nicholas Gregory, who yesterday (Saturday) walked onto the pitch at Wembley Stadium.

Nicholas was chosen to be a mascot at the Spurs versus Newcastle game at Wembley Stadium and walked through the tunnel and onto the pitch with Toby Alderweireld.

“He’s is a member of the club and as a member there’s an chance to be chosen as a mascot for the team. It’s a once in a life time opportunity!”
