The tour then moved over to the DW stadium where the group were able to meet the team that prepares the kit for each game and see where the shirts are printed for each player.

A pitch-side tour followed, which included a trip to the media gantry where all televised games are filmed from.

They were then given the chance to watch the players train in the gym and outside, giving Mollie and her family an exclusive insight into the type of exercises the team do as part of their game preparations.
