Oliver Wylam

Oliver Wylam won a Money-Can't-Buy experience with Newcastle United at the recent Wigan home game after becoming a Magpie member. Here he tells us what he won and how it went...

My night started at six o'clock when my dad and I met Sara Harris, the head of mascot duties and she told me what I would be doing for the rest of the night.

After that, my dad and I were taken through the players and officials' entrance to the first-team dressing room, where I would meet the players and get some autographs. Sarah made sure I got to meet everyone and see what goes on behind the scenes on a match day.

After I finished the shirt signing I got a full Newcastle United kit to wear and keep! We then went to the Directors' Guest Lounge where we had something to eat and drink - we also met Harry Redknapp and David Platt. I was having such a good time because everyone was so nice to me and my dad.

We then made our way down to the pitch. On the way out we went through the tunnel and took lots of photos where the players always get interviewed after the game. We then went to watch the players warm up - I even got some photos in Alan Pardew's seat.

Just before the players went out I went into the tunnel to meet up with Fabricio Coloccini while my mam, dad and grandad stayed pitchside to watch me come out and take more photos. I was very nervous before I went onto the pitch as all of the supporters were there and the crowd was so loud, but when I went out it was something I will never forget. I got to kick the ball about on the pitch and shake hands with lots of important people, including the Wigan players.

After that we went to take our seats in the Directors' Box. At half-time we went back to the Directors' Guest Lounge where I got to take pictures with Harry Redknapp and David Platt.

When the second half started we went to take our seats and even walked past Derek Llambias and Mike Ashley. Newcastle won 3-0 and on the way out I collected a photo that was taken before the game with both captains and the referee. I had the best night ever, all thanks to Newcastle for the Money-Can't-Buy experience.
