DELIGHTED James Clark enjoyed a once in a lifetime moment as he led Leeds United out as the club’s mascot.

The seven-year-old Holbeach United U/8 player won a competition to represent the club for their Championship clash with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, which was screened live on Sky Sports.

Weston Hills Primary School pupil James and his dad Stuart Clark were also able to go behind the scenes and were invited into the Leeds dressing room.

They met all of the players for photographs, the signing of shirts and footballs and saw Simon Grayson the Leeds manager. Unfortunately for James, Leeds lost 3-0.
