A Special Night For Oskar

Oskar Pycroft realised a dream when he walked out as Bristol City’s mascot against Preston North End at Ashton Gate last night.

Last season the young supporter led the two teams out in his wheelchair, on a day when more than £15,000 was raised between supporters of the two clubs.

Fans of City, Bristol Rovers, Preston North End and other clubs from the Bristol sporting fraternity all helped with further fundraising.

In total in excess of £57,000 was raised, enabling Oskar to undergo life-changing surgery.

Donning his football boots and supported by former skipper Wade Elliott, who has helped Oskar along the way, the youngster arrived in the centre-circle to a standing ovation.

Oskar’s story has touched the hearts of everyone associated with the club, and the season ticket holder thoroughly enjoyed his big moment, issuing a big “thank you” on the stadium tannoy.
