Stephen and his wife Susanne have very kindly offered two lucky kids the chance to be a mascot on the day. To be in with a chance of winning, they would like you to draw a picture of Stephen. The couple will then pick, two of their favourite entries with the artists being allocated a mascot place free of charge. All pictures will be displayed on the day of the game.
