BRYLCREEM SCHOOLBOY MEETS HERO BECKHAM TO FORM A DREAM TEAM
Matt Sissons, the 15 year old schoolboy who changed schools in order to be able to continue using his favourite hair styling product Brylcreem, met his footballing hero David Beckham in Manchester today.
Sissons met Beckham shortly after the filming of the Brylcreem credits that support Brylcreem's sponsorship of the second series of Sky One's popular 'Dream Team'. Sissons enjoyed a walk on part as an enthusiastic fan seeking an autograph from his football hero, played by model Alex Appleby. Dream Team is about young professional footballers and their glamorous lives on and off the pitch.
Sissons, who played at Nottingham City Boys, (the same club as Arsenal's new young prodigy Jermaine Pennant), said of the overall experience:
"This is brilliant! I want to be a professional footballer and David Beckham is one of my football heroes. It is amazing to think I have got to meet David and talk about football because I use Brylcreem Styling Gel."
"With a bit of Brylcreem luck Matthew's dream of playing for a Premiership team could be realised. Let's hope the next time we meet is on the pitch."
Due to ITC regulations Brylcreem were unable to film Beckham to promote their sponsorship of the second series. Dream Team appears twice a week on Sky One and the first airing of Brylcreem's sponsorship credits are scheduled for February 9.
