Football training

This week Jonny took the boys to football training twice. On Monday, after playing football with the younger boys, he described his performance as the elegance of Ryan Giggs, the vision of Dennis Bergkamp and the first touch of a brick wall.

Today, after playing with the older boys, he described his performance as the elegance of a brick wall, the vision of a brick wall and the first touch of a brick wall. There was a mitigating factor, though.  Today's game was played during a particularly heavy thunderstorm and most of the pitch was submerged, with some parts being almost ankle deep in water. This didn't stop the game or the enjoyment, however.  It just meant that we had a dozen sodden boys coming home at the end.

Now, Jonny's looking forward to Monday, so he can show off again in front of the 6-10 year olds!
