One of the more colourful aspects of going to a football match is the mascots. Below are some pictures of mascots from clubs I have visited over the years.
Here is Miller Bear, the Rotherham United mascot, pictured at the Don Valley Stadium, Sheffield before Rotherham United's home game against Chesterfield on 5th September 2009.
Note: You can see two of Rotherham United's most famous fans, The Chuckle Brothers in the bottom right corner of the photo.
