Exeter City is delighted to be able to extend yet another exciting opportunity for young supporters to go behind the scenes at St James Park as Kids in Charge returns for the visit of Morecambe on May 7!
The club are staggered with the number of young fans we continue to see coming through the turnstiles at St James Park. The introduction of the Junior Grecians Family Zone on match days has seen the Junior Grecian membership topping the magic 700 milestone. If you have not visited the family zone with your children why not take the opportunity on your next visit to St James Park.
Kids in Charge made a successful debut at City’s match against Stevenage way back in 2015. We now have 41 exciting opportunities available for junior supporters to go behind the scenes around the time of Exeter City’s match against Morecambe on the final day of the season on Sunday, May 7, 12pm.
As in previous years these are genuine, money-cannot-buy opportunities at Exeter City. Last time a record 54 children participated in the event.
As part of our Kids in Charge we’re giving our younger fans aged between six and twelve the chance to shadow special roles here at SJP. Most of the opportunities up for grabs will happen on the match day, with other lucky youngsters getting to visit the Cliff Hill Training Ground to interview key staff.
In the past parents have recognised it really is events like this that reinforce Exeter City as a Community Club committed to the family audience. The genuine offer of exciting and rewarding opportunities really has become one of the season’s highlights.
