Aimee joined the team at their training session to hand over the defibrillator unit to team caption the boys all had wore their new training kits.

Eagles manager Martin said 'We as a team would like to thank the work that has gone in behind the scenes to help organize the event. But the biggest Thank you goes to Aimee. Without her the night wouldn't of been a success, she was amazing. So a big Thank you from everyone at Newton Aycliffe Youth u13 Eagles.'
