Samuel is enjoying being back on the pitch. He’s had 2 matches now, the first he scored a hatrick, the game being won 8-0! The second was loss, 7-2, although Samuel scored one of their goals, but far more impressive was the way he set up the first one. A free kick just outside the area, and the opposition were clearly expecting the boy to pile drive it through them.
But with a little flick of the ball, he lobbed he delicately over the heads of the opposition onto the awaiting foot of one of his teamates. I was impressed, as were the other parents and coaches. Maybe Manchester United is on the cards after all!
Bring on the next team, I fear the sleeping giant may now be awakening….
