AN Outlane boy will run out at the McAlpine Stadium with his football heroes tomorrow.

But it will not be Huddersfield Town he will be leading out for the match.

Eight-year-old Paul Holroyd will be acting as a mascot for his dream team - Doncaster Rovers, Town's opponents.

Paul has been a Rovers fan since stepdad Andy Duggan took him to one of their games several years ago.

Andy, who comes from Doncaster, has converted wife Sarah and Paul to the team.

Sarah said: "I have always liked football, but since Andy came on the scene he has got me and Paul into Rovers.

"We are Rovers mad and go to all the games."

Paul is a member of the Rovers junior supporters club, from which mascots for home games are regularly picked.

He obviously cannot go to all home games, so Sarah asked for a special favour - and he was given the job at the McAlpine game.

She said: "He is so excited. We all are. For Andy it was a boyhood dream to lead Rovers out and now Paul is doing it.

"We will all be watching from the Doncaster stands - wearing the club colours - when he runs on the pitch.

"His favourite player is Michael McIndoe and he will get to meet him. It's like a second Christmas for him."
