Take a look at what the Dale In The Community Sports Trust have going on at Boxing Day's match against Blackpool at the Crown Oil Arena…
There will be two mascots leading the teams out before kick-off on Boxing Day – Alfie Radanovic and Stanley Mathieson.
Alfie, who attends Littleborough Community School, will be celebrating his eighth birthday on Boxing Day!
He plays for Littleborough Blues Under-8s as a goalkeeper, just like his favourite player, Josh Lillis.
The Dale goalkeeper is also a favourite of our other mascot, Stanley.
He attends Bolton School, but is an RAFC Season Ticket holder along with his father.
Stanley plays for Horwich RMI Juniors.
Have a great day, lads!
