So my big day came and went. It was for sure one of my best days ever 90 minutes at the Stadium of Light. It started with a really early car journey of 200 miles. On the way a blow out on my back tyre but all was well.
I was never a great footballer my head was always better than my feet. But on the day I had one of my best games ever, set up our first goal and scored (yes that’s right SCORED) our second. I picked it up on the half way line and ran, and they back off so I ran some more into the area into the box and thought I’ll have a go into the top left-hand corner. At first I couldn’t believe it then I ran all the way to the half way line pointing to my son sitting in the directors area going “that’s yours son that’s yours” at the top of my voice.
The second half the professional that plays on each side for the opposition didn’t like the way we dominated them so scored two goals. Then they get a third so with 5 min’s to go three two down. Luckily we get a third to draw three three. So undefeated at the stadium of light and scored on my debut not a bad day.
