CAMPAIGN DIARY: Over-the-moon Morag squeezed a thigh and scored a goal for QPR

You know those cute ickle kiddies who act as team mascots at the start of footie games? The ones in the little baggy shorts who run out on to the pitch, kick the ball about with their heroes and then shake hands with the ref and so forth?

Well, Morag Blazey, a director at New PHD, robbed one of them of their

biggest day last week when she, a fully grown woman (who really ought to

know better), acted as mascot for Queen’s Park Rangers in their league

match against Birmingham City.



Blazey is a Rangers season ticket-holder who sponsors Trevor Sinclair’s

kit, and she won the chance to be a mascot from Heart FM, a match

sponsor from whom she buys lots of radio.



But she had just as much fun as any four-year-old, she told us.



’It was a dream come true. I got to score a goal at the home end in the

kick-around at the beginning - and I got to squeeze Trevor Sinclair’s

thigh,’ she gushed.



Being a bit sensitive about her unsuitability for the role, she got

someone to announce her over the tannoy as ’Morag Blazey, from New PHD

Comprehensive, aged 12-and-a-half’.



’I’m quite small, you see, and I thought I might be able to get away

with it,’ she said. Mmmm, maybe, Morag. From a distance - of, like, a

few miles. On a dark night.
