On Saturday the 28th April 2018 – Frankie Townsend was the official Brighton & Hove Albion Football Mascot for the Away fixture at Burnley Football Club.
I have added below the Go-Pro footage from the Official Football 24-7 Youtube account for our readers to enjoy.
We were so impressed by the amazing staff at Burnley that we wrote an email to them, and copied it into the Premier League as well as the Brighton Supporters team.
Please see an extract below:
I wanted to personally write to thank you and your colleague for making myself and my family feel so welcome on Saturday.
The warmth and hospitality shown to us all was exceptional, even the fans who we met and talked with in the Jimmy Mclloy suite made us feel at home.
( As we were the only Brighton fans in the suite, this could have been hostile )
I believe my son Frankie and all of us will remember the day forever, not just for the Football, but also for the professional and friendly atmosphere you created.
This has to be one of the best days of Frankie’s life, and definitely one of mine too.
I sincerely am very grateful for everything you and your colleague did on the day, and want to commend you on being absolutely Fantastic Ambassadors for Burnley Football Club and the Premier League.
A one off experience, that yourself and your colleague and the whole club, turned into a “Spectacular Personal Experience” for my whole family.
They say Football brings people together, however Football can also do Magical things, just like you and your club did for myself and my family on Saturday.
I have copied this email into the Brighton team and also the Premier League, as I wanted to share feedback on this wonderful experience with them too.
We have also added the Go-Pro Footage onto Youtube so that we can share this with the rest of the family in Brighton!
I am so grateful and humbled by the whole experience, I really wanted to let you know, that we have been overwhelmed by your hospitality and kindness.
Warmest and most sincere regards
The Townsend Family
