Young Nottingham Forest fanatic Bobby Gregorich enjoyed a dream day out at the City Ground when his team beat Bolton Wanderers 3-0.

Under-12 season ticket holder Bobby, who comes from three generations of Forest fans, was chosen as match mascot The Reds and led the team out on to the pitch in front of thousands prior to kick-off.

His day began when he met all the players and manager Billy Davies, had a tour of the ground and visited the VIP lounge.

Half an hour before kick-off, he took part in a kick-about with the Forest squad, and put the ball into the net past keeper Karl Darlow – which was more than Wanderers were able to do that afternoon!

As well as his memories, Bobby took home an autograph book and VIP mascot, and he will treasure his ticket stub and match programme for a long time to come.

His mother Andrea said Bobby had a great day at City Ground: “He loved it. He got a bit emotional but Billy Davies handed him a big bag of sweets.”
