IT WAS a dream come true for members of Buxton Magpies U12s Girls who were given the honour of escorting out the players at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium ahead of their recent UEFA Champions League game against Napoli.

As well as leading out the footballers in front of over 44,000 fans, Magpies players Wendy Elwood, Effie McFadyen, Shaniah Mason, Caitlin Richardson, Jasmine Rider, Ella Thompson, Sofia Morrissey, Bria Edwards, Georgia Williams and Natasha Green also got the chance to meet most of the players and City boss Roberto Mancini.
