“It’s not everyday that you get the chance to compete with a professional footballer and our ‘Challenge A Pro’ competition will give one lucky fan the opportunity to go behind the scenes at the Mick George Training Academy and compete with a Posh first team player in “head to head “ challenges. We’ve put a lot of thought into the various challenges which will test a different range of skills and techniques. The talk around the training academy is that Harry is not taking any chances with this and is putting the extra hours in to make sure he is ready for the competition.”
