I watch Soccer AM as much as possible so I'll have a look out!

Mark, they usually put a good number of clips on the Soccer AM website, including 'Soccerette' which heavily features one of the fans, it could be him who knows!

Having just returned from a few days in London with Sky Television I would like to start my report by firstly thanking a few people.. 8)
Sky Television and Bobbie in particular for making it happen, Blackpool Football Club and in particular Stuart and everybody connected to the club for helping me in my hour of need.. 8) and finally the club sponsors Wonga, it was great to speak to Matt one of the managers who kindly supplied us all with the kit.

So how did it start..?

Well I applied on line as I noticed on the club web site invitations for people to apply to appear as fans on the show..
I applied but did not really think that I stood much of a chance but wanted to give it a go.
I was quite surprised to of received an email the same day from Sky, they asked for more information, I sent as much information as I could and funny storey's about each of the chosen contestant's..

Sky then asked for pictures and told me to write some more information as they were about to make a descion, this was on the Friday and then I heard nothing..

It came to Monday evening and I sadly informed people that our application had failed.. :(

On the Tuesday evening I finished work at 8.30pm, and when I got home there was a telephone message from Bobbi.
He wanted to make contact with me, I sent him an email and within 10 minutes he was calling my home..
He told me that we were on the show.. 8) 8)

I could hardly hide my surprise and excitement and I told everybody connected..

Sadly I had a few drop out for different reasons and I had to jiggle things around, SKY we very supportive and left it upto me to sort out and find 2 replacements..

Blackpool FC & Wonga helped us out and we are so grateful..

SKY Television were superb hosts..

And the lads that represented Blackpool FC on the show were amazing, they all put up with so much..
The nerves nearly got the better of all of us, it was very difficult..

Ok some pictures of the day.. 8)

We left Blackpool at 6pm to go to Preston to pick up the Virgin Train to take us to London Euston..


Image


Image

We finally arrived at Euston and met up with Jack who was traveling from Leicester, we were then met by two nice men with Sky Sports signs and we were taken to 2 waiting Mercedes cars and taken to our hotel..


Image

Image

Image

Image

Inside the hotel we checked in and went to our very nice rooms..

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The next morning we were all up quite early, most of us had a really crap nights sleep due to stress of appearing on the show.. :D

We all got changed into our kits that had been kindly supplied by Wonga.. 8)

Image

The ball signed by all the players that BFC had asked me to present to Sky.. 8)

Image

A group mirror shot.. :D

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Little Kienan and his Dad were staying in the same hotel.. 8)

Image

Next stop Soccer AM and Sky Studios..

Image

Image

Once inside and passed the security we relaxed in the canteen and green room..

Image

Bobbie one of the Producers..

Image

Inside the green room and waiting for rehearsals..

Image

The nerves really started to get hold of you at this moment..

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Onto the set for rehearsals..

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Helen on the set..

Image

We went outside to practice the penalties, you would not believe me if I told you that we hit the target more times than we missed, even Louise scored 2 penalties..
The actual live shoot out was very disappointing,the fact that we only scored 2 will annoy us for years to come.. :(

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We started to feel more confident after the kick around and started to look forward to the show..

Image

The show started soon after and the 2 hours went by so quickly, it was a really enjoyable experience and we all felt so proud to be representing Blackpool Football Club on the show.. 8)

We had time to mix with the real stars of the show.. 8)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Dave got Helen some Blackpool rock.. 8)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We then left for the Arsenal game, I was able to purchase 5 tickets for the game and as a surprise I treated Taran & Oliver to the game..

Sky very kindly provided the transport and we arrived in style.. 8)

Image

Image

Image

And at the stadium within 2 minutes I was spotted by an Arsenal fan who watched the show... :D

Image

On behalf of the Blackpool 8 I would like to thank Sky Television, Blackpool FC & Wonga for an amazing few days, and treasured memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.. 8) 8) 8)
