A honour and privilege!

Published by Lamont D in the blog Lamont D's blog. Views: 417

Last night I attended a football match at a premier league ground, where I have watched so many football legends perform, when it was possible to watch top league football and support my local lower league club as well. I was watching a fa youth cup match and the team that I support was playing against one of the giants of the English game.
The young lads that represented my club were magnificent, even in defeat, the performance level was one that made me realise that even at youth level, you can overcome the huge difference in funding levels between the top level 1 academies and the underfunded lower level 3 academies.
It was a great experience for these lads and the club should be proud of them. Which I have no doubt they will be.
Quite a number of supporters turned up to cheer the lads on.
It was an honour and privilege to witness to be there!
