It was a really good day and winning made it extra special.   Mum Annalisa added: “My brother is a season ticket holder. He knew we were coming and said to enter her for My First Matchday.   “I daren’t tell her and then when she won she was thrilled. My family have always supported so it’s great to bring the children along.”   Games Keepers are members of the Tigers customer services team who are stationed on the plaza in front of the MET-Rx stand and around the ground on matchdays to lend a helping hand, to promote Tigers family traditions and to support fans to ensure everyone has a great day out.
