EVERYONE remembers going to their first football match as a child.
But by anyone's standards, seven-year-old Tyler Martinez's first taste of the game takes some beating.
Because Tyler, from Springfields, WGC, was one of the children who got to step out at Wembley Stadium with players from Chelsea and Manchester United for this year's FA Community Shield match.
After being named the winner of the Welwyn & Hatfield Times competition, in association with McDonald's, to become a player escort for the day, Tyler said: "It was just such a surprise".
The Manchester United fan took his place alongside Red Devils and England midfielder Michael Carrick before the match, which was eventually won by Chelsea on penalties.
