Football fans at Friday @ Freebrough visit the Riverside Stadium

As part of the Premier League Kicks project, a group of lucky students from Friday @ Freebrough, along with members of staff, were given free tickets for the home match at the Riverside Stadium.

Friday @ Freebrough is a youth club held every Friday, 6.00 pm – 8.00 pm, giving students somewhere safe to socialise with friends outside of the classroom. Students also have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities and opportunities.

Before kick off the students were given the opportunity to walk around the pitch and see the Middlesbrough team warm up.

It was a brilliant experience for the football fans, with it being some students first time at a match! Although the score at the end of the match was Middlesbrough 0 – 1 Norwich City, the students had a fun-filled Tuesday night.
