Harry Leach 25th May, 2018

A BROMSGROVE boy has won a competition to walk out at Wembley with Aston Villa’s John Terry in tomorrow’s Championship Play-Off final.

Haydn Farnell, nine, will lead the team out as they try to beat Fulham in a bid to reach the Premier League.

Haydn was entered into the competition, which was run by Aston Villa, by his parents Andrew and Toni-Anne Farnell.

Toni said: “Not for one minute did we think Hayden would win the competition because of the amount of people who entered.

“We are so proud. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and one that he will remember for the rest of his life.”
