Baldock boy scores with dream day at Chelsea

A FOOTBALL fanatic scored by winning a dream day at the home of Chelsea.

Joshua Oxberry of Church Street, Baldock, won a magazine competition to go on a behind-the-scenes tour of Stamford Bridge and take part in a training session with Chelsea coaches.

The 14-year-old took along his dad James Oxberry and 11 friends for the day- long football spectacular.

The youngsters were given a tour of the stadium, and spent time in the dugout and press room.

Joshua and the gang also visited the home changing room and walked down the tunnel on to the pitch – following in the footsteps of Chelsea heroes.
