Louise Hamby of Teachers UK says that Eva was a worthy winner of their latest competition. “It is the last day before the Christmas holidays and so the presentation we made was really special! It’s a very special prize for a very deserving winner.” Louise says that Teachers UK, an education recruitment specialist based at Mansfield’s I-Centre, enjoys giving back to the schools and academies it works with. “King Edward Primary School takes real pride in its children and the staff strive to give them the best opportunities possible. Teachers UK were proud to be part of the final day of school celebrations and we hope that Eva thoroughly enjoys her Mascot Day.” Alice Martin is the teacher who nominated Eva for the competition and she said, “I nominated Eva for a few reasons, the first being that she absolutely loves football! Also, she works incredibly hard all of the time, she is so polite and just such a lovely pupil who deserves a treat. This will be her dream come true and she really deserves it!” There to make the presentation with Teachers UK was Mansfield Town Football in the Community’s Jordan Ferrer, (Asst Community Manager, Disability Development Officer & PL Girls Coordinator) and Sammy the Stag. Jordan said, “It’s a great opportunity for a young person to be a Mascot; it’s one of the most popular activities we do at the football club and to win this prize means that Eva will have a fantastic experience. She will get to meet the players, receive a Mansfield Town shirt and autographed football and will spend a fun packed day with us on match day.” Eva’s parents were there to see the presentation and Mum, Amanda Boden and Dad, Tony Rees said they were especially proud of her love of football because of a setback Eva had early in life. Amanda said, “Eva was born with congenital hip dysplasia and needed two lots of surgery before she was 6 months old. At that point we were told she might not be able to play sports or even walk properly. But now she is fine and just gets on with it!” Eva said she was excited about the prize. “I like football because you get fit. I am taking Dad with me on the day because he loves football and the best bit will be taking the team out on to the pitch. It’s a really good Christmas present!”   ENDS For press enquiries about Teachers UK, call Louise Brimble at By Appointment PR on 07808 596244. Note to Editors. More about the scheme:

Sienna scores a Mascot Day thanks to Teachers UK! “It’s a very special prize for a very special young lady.” says Teachers UK Ten-year-old Sienna McGrath of Clipstone’s Samuel Barlow Primary Academy, part of Diverse Academies Learning Partnership, has a lot to look forward to in the Easter holidays after scoring a full Mascot Day at Mansfield Town Football Club courtesy of Teachers UK. The Mascot Days are run by Mansfield Town Football in the Community and give children the opportunity to get a look behind the scenes, and to meet the players on match day. Louise Hamby of Teachers UK says that Sienna was a worthy winner of their latest competition. “It was the last day before the Easter holidays and so the presentation we made was egg-stra special! It’s a very special prize for a very special young lady”. Louise says that Teachers UK, an education recruitment specialist based at Mansfield’s I-Centre, enjoys giving back to the schools and academies it works with. “Samuel Barlow Primary Academy takes real pride in its children and the staff work tirelessly to give them the best opportunities possible. Teachers UK were proud to be part of the celebration. Sienna has shown courage and determination and she is an excellent role model to all of us.” There to make the presentation with Teachers UK was Sammy the Stag and Mansfield Town Football in the Community’s Gary Shaw, (Community Manager & PL Primary Stars Coordinator). Gary said, “Sienna will get to meet the players and receive a Mansfield Town football kit and a signed football. It’s definitely one of the most rewarding parts of my job and creates a great rapport with the young people – the joy on their faces and their smiles makes it very worthwhile.” Sienna is already a keen footballer but admits she is a bit nervous about going on to the pitch. “I am really excited – my teachers told me they had nominated me and that made me really happy.” Sienna plays for the academy’s girls football team. “I like to play in defence for the Samuel Barlow team and recently we have won every game we have played. I also used to play for Stags girls, so I have been to the grounds before, but never on the pitch! I am really proud that Teachers UK chose me and on the day I am taking my dad and my brother. I really looking forward to stepping onto the playing surface and meeting the players too.” Angela Hirst nominated Sienna for the Teachers UK competition and said, “Sienna is an excellent role model both in her academic and sporting curriculum. She is a resilient young lady who embodies the values of the academy and is a brilliant young footballer who has helped us to win all of our league matches this year – this is in spite of being knocked down by a car, and having physio to allow her to play football again. We hope she has a wonderful well-deserved experience.” Samuel Barlow Spring Term winner alone 18

  Christmas comes early as Teachers UK award Mansfield Town FC Mascot Day to two deserving children Two school children have received early Christmas presents from Teachers UK as the education recruitment specialist has awarded full Mascot Days at Mansfield Town Football Club to each, after their schools nominated them as outstanding pupils. Shirebrook’s Brookfield Primary School pupil, Jack Barksby, is described by his Teacher Daniel Brickles in glowing terms. “He’s fantastic! He’s just such a lovely boy who gets on with everyone, he’s always so enthusiastic. He’s a huge football fan and holds a season ticket at Shirebrook Town and has even managed to talk them into buying the school a new football kit which will really benefit the school. I am sure he will have a fantastic day, it will be a great experience for him.” Jack said he wants to take his Dad with him on the day. “I am really looking forward to seeing the match and I would like to say thank you to Mr Brickles for nominating me for this competition.” Pupil Brody Marriott who goes to Dalestorth Primary & Nursery School in Sutton in Ashfield has also won a full mascot day, which sees children lead the team on to the pitch and received signed souvenirs. Brody was nominated by his Head Teacher Mrs Sally Stafford who says Brody is a very deserving pupil. “The nomination of Brody was suggested by a group of parents whose children are in Brody’s class.  They thought he needed something to look forward to as he had been having a difficult time as his little brother has been diagnosed with cancer and is due to have a life-saving operation. Brody has also been missing his mum who is having to spend lots of time in hospital with his brother. “As a school we thought it would be a perfect reward for Brody, not just because he has been having a tough time, but because he is a super young man 100% of the time!  His behaviour and manners are exceptional.  He has never had a telling off in all the time he has been at Dalestorth.  He is very kind to his friends and is an extremely hard worker.  The reward is also perfect for Brody as he absolutely loves football! All of us here at Dalestorth can’t think of a more deserving candidate and we know Brody will just love the experience.  He is particularly looking forward to training with the players and the whole experience will be enhanced even more by the fact it is his birthday.  Thanks to those who suggested the nomination, Teachers UK and Mansfield Town FC it will be a birthday he won’t forget.” Louise Hamby of Teachers UK, said that they were delighted to give the prizes to two very deserving children. “It has been wonderful to be able to give these prizes to two such lovely children. Both are highly thought of within their school and are described as kind and helpful to everyone. We hope that the day builds some happy memories for both of them and that they have a wonderful experience at Mansfield Town Football Club.”     For press enquiries about Teachers UK, call Louise Brimble at By Appointment PR on 07808 596244.
