Honorary Kickette: Celia Hodkin
Please take a moment to doff your metaphorical cap to Celia Hodkin, Kickettes. Celia has been a Manchester City fan since 1933, and achieved a life’s ambition last weekend when she was invited to be the mascot at her club’s game vs. Fulham.
As is only right for a woman of such commitment and stature, Celia was afforded VIP treatment on game day, taking in the sights and sounds of the tunnel, the changing room (!) and getting a ball (l) signed by all the players. Her daughter Cath Stone told mcfc.co.uk “My Mum had an absolutely wonderful day, she said she felt that everyone at City made her feel as important as the Queen!”
As yet, we’ve no indication as to whether Celia managed a crafty pinch of anyone’s behind. But we figure she probably did. She’s a Kickette, after all.
