AN ASPIRING young Sheffield Wednesday footballer won the chance to walk out with the Welsh and Belgian National Football teams in their World Cup qualifier.

Owls youth academy player Josh Chapman, of Dinnington, met some big Premier League names after winning a competition on McDonald’s Kickstart website.

He said: “I was really excited to be able to walk out with the Welsh team. They have some really great players.”

The eight year-old, who attends Anston Park Junior School, walked out alongside some of the biggest names in football including Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale, and Aaron Ramsey, of Arsenal, both of whom play for Wales.

Josh also came face to face with Belgian player Eden Hazard, who plays for Chelsea.
