Young Edward Fahey walked alongside some of the biggest stars in world football when he was one of the mascots at a top European match.

The Hillmorton schoolboy met the players ahead of the second leg of Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday last week. Jose Mourinho’s side won the match 2-0 to go through to the semi-finals.

“It was great to walk out on to the pitch with the players,” said Edward, a pupil of English Martyrs Catholic Primary School and a Coventry City supporter.

Edward, nine, watched the match from the stand with his mother, Becky. His father, Steven, was away on business and had to watch the game on television.

“On the telly I saw Edward had a great big smile on his face so I could tell he was having fun,” said Mr Fahey, who won his son’s mascot experience in a competition.
