Win the chance to be mascot for England schoolboys when they play at Home Park
SOCCER-loving city kids are being offered the honour of leading out the England schoolboy team at the upcoming under-18 international at Home Park.
But the youngsters will have to strike quickly to act as mascot for the national side against their Northern Ireland counterparts on Friday, March 8.
The chance to head the country's finest under-18s for the prestigious Centenary Shield clash at Argyle's Theatre of Greens is open to boys and girls, aged between six years and 12 years old, but time is of the essence.
The deadline for entries is midnight tonight with the winner' s name being drawn out at midday tomorrow by Chris French, Plymouth Schools' FA Chairman.

The good news is that, there is no competition to complete with tricky questions, simply forward your name and address to the email address at the foot of this article and wait to hear if you will be the lucky boy or girl wearing the Three Lions with pride.
French said, aside from actually playing, the chance of leading out your national team in front of a big crowd, is every youngster's dream.
"It's a wonderful opportunity for a boy or a girl to play a part in what is a prestigious international," said French. England are the holders of the Shield and in the recent past have produced players of the quality of Manchester United's Chris Smalling.
"To win the chance of leading out your country couldn't be easier, but please be quick off the mark, and email your name and address straight away," added French.
The match is being organised by the Plymouth Schools' FA, English Schools' FA and host club Plymouth Argyle.
The teams will be spending two days in the city which include visiting schools in between their training sessions before the fixture.
Tickets are only £4 for adults and £2 for children aged 16 and under.
All profit made by this international fixture will go back into schools football, with 50 per cent going directly into schools football in Plymouth.
French added: "We hope to have a really big crowd at the fixture which will produce an excellent atmosphere for the players but in turn support football in schools across the city for years to come."
