A FOOTBALL-mad youngster from Charvil won the experience of a lifetime by walking out as a player escort at Wembley Stadium.

Sharde Young-Moore, 11, won a McDonald's competition to walk onto the hallowed Wembley pitch alongside Sergio Aguero ahead of the 2018 FA Community Shield match between Manchester City and Chelsea on Sunday, August 5.

Sharde said: "I loved walking out on the Wembley pitch, it was exciting looking at the crowd and seeing them all cheering. I don’t think I’ll ever stop talking about it, it was an amazing dream come true.”

Sir Geoff Hurst, McDonald’s ambassador, said: “Having the chance of walking out in front of 72,000 fans at Wembley is an incredible experience that will never get old. The feeling you get and the reaction from the crowd isn’t something you easily forget.

"I have no doubt that Sharde had a great day and I’m glad football has the ability to bring such a memorable moment to the lives of many promising young players.”
