Lucky Spar winners meet their favourite football players

James Hall amp; Co has helped children meet their favourite Preston North End football players.

The Spar UK wholesaler for the North of England, ran a competition in The Lancashire Evening Post with Preston North End FC in December asking children to draw their favourite football player for the chance to meet them.

The contest ran for six weeks with all entries featured in an eight-page supplement which called on readers to vote for their favourite.

The artists received a pair of match tickets and the top 10 entries were turned into posters that are now displayed in the family stand concourse at the Deepdale ground. 

All 10 winners were then invited to the stadium just before Christmas to see their posters, meet their favourite players and attend the match. The overall winner, Joshua Dickinson, also received a match ball signed by his favourite player.
