JAMES FOSS – MASCOT POMPEY V OLDHAM ATHLETIC 30/9/2017.
Last year James was Mascot for the Crawley Town home game, which resulting in a 3-0 win for Pompey. This year when James found out he’d been picked he was so excited he bought himself a new pair of Football Boots for the occasion. Last year James had his arm in a cast with a broken arm, so could not take part in much of the running around and kicking the ball, so this time he was really looking forward to kicking the ball about with other mascots.
James was also looking forward to going around the pitch waving and clapping the Supporters as last year he was only allowed to walk half the pitch as a mascot was late. James hoped to walk out with Brett Pitman top goal scorer and Captain, as he wants to be a striker and score goals. James predicted a high scoring game, with either a 3-2 win for Pompey or a 2-2 draw as both teams went into the game in a winning run and scoring goals.
After the game, James said he was disappointed with Pompey’s performance and felt they should have made changes earlier, as Pompey’s team looked tired and had no spark. He thought that the injury to Nathan Thompson had rocked Pompey’s defence and affected them badly. He said that Pompey looked better in the last 20 minutes when subs Bennett and Rose came on.
His favourite moments of the day were walking out with Matt Kennedy, who he said was nice and talkative to him and clapping and waving to the fans and getting applause back. Now on to your prediction James – James admitted he didn’t see Pompey losing, but did predict a high scoring game and he got it right when he said Oldham would score twice.
