It was all a bit weird really as no idea what to wear …. suit too formal, jeans trainers polo, bit football casual and I even considered going to a fancy dress shop for a costume.
The decision, casual attire.
At the interview, I was asked ‘why do I want to be a football mascot?” Didn’t have a clue what to say but said I’d been a massive fan of Its A Knockout and thought, given the clubs results, they could do with an injection of humour.
The interview went well and at the end, the commercial manager Maureen shook my hand and said the job was mine …….. shit!
This had been a bit of a piss-take and then a game of bluff but there I was about to become Yorkie the Lion the following season.
