Luton schoolboy Reggie Phillips is proud to be a McDonald's player escort at the UEFA world cup 607136815

Reggie Phillips from Wigmore was there as a McDonald’s player escort.

The Putteridge Primary pupil attended the match with proud mum Kelly.

She said: “It’s football 24/7 with Reggie. He plays for Crawley Green Rangers Under 7s, trains at Luton Town and supports Tottenham Hotspur.

“When we were at the final in Paris he kept turning to me and saying ‘OMG Mum, I can’t believe it.’

“The highlight for him was high-fiving Renaldo.”

McDonald’s director of football, Sir Geoff Hurst, said: “Walking out as a McDonald’s player escort ahead of such a big game, in front of such an incredible crowd, is an experience he will never forget.”
