Nine-year-old Owen Ward had a night to remember as Latics' match mascot for the FA Cup with Budweiser, fifth-round replay at Everton.

Dad Jerone described it as a "once-in-a-lifetime experience" after his son was chosen for the honour in a draw of Boundary Blues' members.

He said: "It was an absolutely unbelievable night.

"Everton made us welcome as did Latics.

"And a big thank you to Dean Furman who was great taking Owen into the changing room to meet the players."

Jerone also bought a Latics shirt which was signed by the players and which will be a reminder of his memorable night together.

Owen's parents Jerone and Amanda are massive Latics' fans and the family, who live at Simmondley, Glossop, hardly ever miss a match at Boundary Park. They have also been to all Latics' matches in the FA Cup.
