Domino’s Cup returns.. 2010/11 Season

September 28th, 2010

South Hykeham v Bishop King

The first Domino’s game of this season took place during half time of the Lincoln City v Barnet game.  Both South Hykeham and Bishop King took to the pitch to try and progress into the next round of the competition.
The first shot on goal came shortly after kick off from Logan Watt (Bishop King), which South Hykeham’s goalkeeper saved brilliantly and put it out for a corner.  Logan also had another shot which came off his knee from a corner that was perfectly put into the box by Joshua Pickersgill.
South Hykeham then stepped up a gear and bombarded Bishop Kings goal with shots. Jake Burrows had several shots which the goalkeeper saved, went over the crossbar and also hit the post.  Other shots came from Brad Hayes and Alex Morley but nothing was going in for them.
The final whistle went and the game ended in a draw.  The team to progress into the next round is South Hykeham with the most shots on and off target.  Well done to both teams for taking part in a great opening game!

Chad Varah v Meadows

Chad Varah Primary and The Meadows Primary stepped out onto the Sincil Bank Turf during half time of the Lincoln City v Stevenage.  The game kicked off and straight away shots were being fired at both goals.
Thomas Lowe, Callum Clifton and Noah Brant all had shots on and off target for The Meadows. But on the 5 minute mark the first goal of the game came from Connor Stocks from Chad Varah.  From then on Chad Varah continued to put The Meadows defence under pressure. A ball was played forward from Chad Varah to Connor Stocks who flicked the ball behind him into the goal to put Chad Varah 2-0 up with 3 minutes to go.  This goal started chants from both the home and away supporters who got behind both teams playing.
One minute later Kian Keeley received the ball on the half way line and fired the ball into the top right hand corner which sparked further cheers and chants from the fans. Connor Stocks then finished off his excellent performance by receiving the ball and putting it under The Meadows goalkeeper to get his hat-trick.
After a thrilling 10 minute game the final whistle blew and Chad Varah progress to the quarter finals with a 4-0 victory over The Meadows.

The Mascot Grand National – hosted every autumn by Huntingdon Racecourse in Cambridgeshire – is entering its third decade with an exciting new sponsor.

The original and best mascot race in the world, which began in 1999 and is now poised for its 12th running, is to be supported by Domino’s Pizza.

The event attracts a worldwide television and online audience for the crazy antics of the participants, and it’s the highlight of every year for Britain’s mascots.

Mascots the length and breadth of the country step up their training as they prepare for the big day.

It’s an hilarious occasion when lots of mascots run, walk, stagger and stumble over obstacles on a gruelling 220 yards course.

There’s been mayhem, controversy, accusations of gamesmanship, and claims of ‘ringers’ over the years since this madcap race was first run, but strict rules ensure good clean fun.

Georgina Wald, Corporate Communications Manager at Domino’s Pizza, said: “The Mascot Grand National is a fantastic event at Huntingdon Racecourse that represents exactly what Domino’s Pizza is all about – spending special time with friends and family, laughing, smiling and having great fun. We hope that sponsoring the race will inspire our own mascot – Danny Domino – to do better than he did last year!”

Sophie Hodgkinson, managing director of Huntingdon Racecourse, said: “The Mascot Grand National has grown in size and popularity year after year, and we are delighted to welcome such a fantastic brand as Domino’s Pizza as our new sponsor for the 2010 race.”

The Mascot Grand National kicks off an afternoon of jump racing at the Cambridgeshire racecourse on Sunday 3 October.

*Domino’s Pizza is recognised as the world’s leading pizza delivery company.  The first UK store opened in 1985.  More than 20,000 staff are employed in Britain and Ireland.  There are more than 620 Domino’s Pizza stores throughout the British Isles, including the Huntingdon restaurant at 1 Grammar School Walk – 01480 454700.


1999: The Mascot Grand National was born as 17 mascots took part in one of the most unusual sights ever seen on a racecourse.  Beau Brummie Bulldog, of Birmingham City FC, won.

2000: Word spread, and 49 mascots lined up, with Watford FC’s Harry the Hornet stinging the bookmakers in a flying finish.

2001: Controversy as Freddie the Fox was first past the post, but turned out to be an Olympic athlete.  Uproar ensued, and Dazzler the Lion (Rushden & Diamonds FC) roared as he was proclaimed the new winner.

2002: Chaddy the Owl (Oldham Athletic FC) flew to victory amidst claims that he was another ‘ringer’.  The accusations were unfounded – it had been Chaddy’s vigorous training routine that enabled him to wing it.

2003: For the second year Chaddy the Owl was crowned victor, but only after several rivals were distracted by a female streaker.  An attempted £10,000 betting coup using a Commonwealth Games gold medallist as Sedge the Field Mouse failed when one of the rodent’s feet fell off.

2004: The year of Graham the Gorilla, the mascot of local football club Finedon Volta FC, who sent the crowd bananas.

2005: The bookies expected Chaddy and Graham to dominate, but the Sun newspaper’s Scoop 6 Squirrel drove everyone nuts with a stunning turn of foot.

2006: Football charity Kick 4 Life’s mascot Mickey The Monkey proved he was the business despite an attempted ‘rugby’ tackle on him in the closing stages.  Sammy Saint was second for the second year.

2007: Wacky Macky Bear saw off the 2006 winner Mickey the Monkey to win for Saffron Walden FC on his Grand National debut.

2008: The tenth running of the mascot race sees Wacky Macky Bear win for the second year in a row, with Cambridgeshire-based mascots filling second, third and fourth spots.

2009: At last a local winner, as Stag from Huntingdon Rugby Club triumphed.  Inside the costume was Heath Crawford, a New Zealand-born rugby player.


Admission on Sunday 3 October: Main Enclosure £15; Picnic Enclosure £8.  Accompanied children under 18 – free.  Tickets for the Main Enclosure can be purchased in advance, either online at <> or via the ticket hotline on 0844 579 3007.

Parking: Free.

Times: Gates open at 12.10pm.  Mascot Grand National at 1.10pm.  First horse race 2.10pm.
