A YOUNG football fan says he may never stop talking about the day he walked out at Wembley Stadium in front of 72,000 people.

Shane Brunt, 10, was lucky enough to be a player escort for the FA Community Shield which took place on Sunday, August 5.

The match acts as a curtain raiser to the Premier League season.

It meant the Braintree youngster walked out beside Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley ahead of their 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Shane said: "I loved walking out on the Wembley pitch, it was exciting looking at the crowd and seeing them all cheering.

"I don’t think I’ll ever stop talking about it, it was an amazing dream come true.”

The Chelsea fan won the chance to be a player escort by winning a competition on the McDonald's website.

Sir Geoff Hurst, McDonald’s ambassador, said: "Having the chance of walking out in front of 72,000 fans at Wembley is an incredible experience that will never get old.

"The feeling you get and the reaction from the crowd isn’t something you easily forget.

"I have no doubt that Shane had a great day and I’m glad football has the ability to bring such a memorable moment to the lives of many promising young players."
