The Life Of Riley

15 December 2014

Eddie comes to the rescue after fan's dog misbehaves!

The Battsons had ordered a Junior U’s pack for their nephew Ethan, as they prepared to bring him to his first ever game at the weekend.

Colchester United's fluffy mascot Eddie the Eagle had to come to the rescue last week, after one U's supporting family's pet misbehaved ahead of the weekend game against Rochdale.

Unfortunately, their dog Riley got hold of the membership pack and, by the time his owner Heidi got home, the pack was in many, many pieces!

Eddie and his Junior U's team saved the day, though, giving Ethan a new pack in time for the weekend’s game, plus we sent Riley some dog chews to keep him occupied whilst the second pack was put out of reach! Despite the result, Ethan had a good day at the Weston Homes Community Stadium and we look forward to welcoming him back soon.
