Nicholas Bowens, today's mascot

Today’s mascot at the Kildare v Fermanagh AFL game at St Conleth’s Park, Newbrige, is Grangenolvan U11 player, Nicholas Bowens.

Nicholas’ favourite position is left corner forward and his football hero is Johnny Doyle.

Best memory: beating Ballykelly when he scored 1-7 and as he says himself his coach, Seamus Connelly, bought all the team ice cream on the way home.”

Sporting hopes: to play for Kildare.

Favourite healthy snack: oranges, grapes and strawberries.
