Our fun day was held on Saturday with a great turn out of kids and parents. All taking part with great enthusiasm (although it did mean re surfacing of old war wounds.(Morris)
The highlight of the day, other than middle age parents losing their dignity in the egg and spoon race and the dress up relay, had to be the epic children vs parents football match.
The children took the lead soon after kick off and would have extended it soon after if the parents didn't have Don 'safe hands' Facey in goal. It was parents that soon equalised with a sharp finish from Morris ' the knee' Nelson and were leading after a 60-yard screamer and extended with a nice tap in.
The children weren't finished and scored a couple goal mouth scrambles to draw equal. The older players were tiring (often seen with hands on knees and blowing like Louie Armstrong) So the call went up "next goal wins". After missing a couple of sitters the parents were made to pay with the kids scoring a well-deserved winner.
We christened our new winter training facility today with the under 9's training indoors at Bishop Thomas Grant School, Streatham. The parents were very impressed with what they saw. Not only the facility but the skills of the kids.
