Stag LAD Walks On Football Pitch In Brogues As Team Mascot

We all know the aim of every stag do is to bring about as much embarrassment, humiliation and attention to the groom-to-be as humanly possible.

And that's exactly what the pals of Kevin Stuart did this weekend during a football match between Blackpool FC and Bradford AFC.

Kevin, a school teacher from Elgin in Moray, Scotland, came to Lancashire for his stag do with 15 sneaky mates who arranged for the 34-year-old to walk on the pitch as a mascot, alongside two teenage boys.

Well played LADs.

The Bradford fans were apparently chanting 'your mascot is shit' as Kevin strutted his stuff hand in hand with Blackpool midfielder, Jay Spearing.

Standing at 6'3 the stag towered over 5'5 Spearing but Kevin said he found it 'hilarious'.

Adding to his humiliation, the stags made Kevin keep his smart brogues on as the club couldn't find any football boots to match his 12 sized feet.

That would have been a struggle in itself surely.

The group had gone to Blackpool to watch ex-Aberdeen player, Clark Robertson, during Blackpool's 5-0 thrashing.

Kevin told LADbible: "I thought we were going for a hospitality day. I sat down and was looking through the programme. There were two kids who were about 12 that were mascots.

"When I saw the first kid I put my head up saying 'thank God it's not me that's a mascot'.

"They started laughing and when I looked down I just saw myself. Apparently my face was a picture."

Kevin will get married on 4 August later this year to his girlfriend of five years, Jessica Paterson, 29.

The pair, who has a child together, got engaged on 5 July 2016 when romantic Kevin proposed at the top of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Jessica, who works in hospitality, found the prank hilarious and even played a part in keeping it under wraps.

Kevin added: "I didn't know about this hence why I was in my suit shoes. I asked the staff if they could source me a pair of size 12 trainers or anything.

"They went away and came back saying they thought it would be funnier if I went out in my brogues. I was trying to take it in my stride.

"The Blackpool players, managers and staff were all really good. I don't think the Bradford team knew about it they were looking at me like I was from another planet.

"Jay Spearing came over because he's one of the smallest guys in the team, going out hand in hand with him was hilarious.

"Apparently Bradford fans were singing 'your mascot is shit'. The crowd were all laughing. It was announced what the circumstances were.

"I didn't expect this whatsoever. It was the highlight of the trip, everyone definitely pulled it off.

"I think I took it quite well. I just had to face up to it and think that was probably one of the best we have had, it was well played and they kept it a wee secret.

"And Blackpool won 5-0, I must have been a lucky mascot."

It's official, you're our hero, Mr Stuart.
