A SPORTS mad Taunton youngster had a dream day out on Saturday as the matchday mascot at Exeter Chiefs.

Henry Mason-Walshaw, who plays for Taunton RFC Under-9s 'Vipers' and Tone Youth Under-9s, is a junior member at the Chiefs and had his name pulled out of a hat to lead the team out against Bristol Bears at Sandy Park.

Henry, who is pictured above with his favourite player Luke Cowan-Dickie, took the matchball out on to the pitch ahead of the game, which Chiefs won 14-9.
