Due to 23rd April being ‘Children’s Day’ in Turkey, Besiktas let the kiddiewinks from their Young Eagles supporters club run riot during their home tie against Yeni Malatyaspor on Sunday.
To kick things off, 10-year-old fan Elif Naz took over on public address duties, announcing the starting line-up to the crowd before the game, complete with pictures of the players drawn by Young Eagles members.
