New senior men’s team mascot invites fans to give him a name

The new Northern Ireland senior men’s team mascot is ready to show his support for Ian Baraclough’s boys across the country.

The mascot, who has just been unveiled, will be out and about at forthcoming events and activities to promote the team and the work of the Irish Football Association.

During his first visit to the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park he was shown around by senior men’s team manager Ian Baraclough and Andrew and Rosie Leach, the team captains for Generation GAWA, the junior section of GAWA Official, the membership scheme for supporters. 

The mascot says he is looking forward to seeing fans in the stands and can’t wait to meet supporters of the Northern Ireland teams.

But before he goes out and about he is asking the fans to give him a name.

Suggest a moniker for the mascot and you could be the winner of a family ticket to the mascot’s debut match as well as a family Irish FA VIP Tours pass.

Naturally, the mascot will be following all government guidelines and Covid-19 protocols when he goes travelling across Northern Ireland. 

And he has reminded everyone of the latest guidance: avoid touching your face and wash your hands as soon as you get home; if you go outside stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people; wear a face covering in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not possible.
