Another mad football day today. Marple Ath under 9s entered the Urmston Meadowside tournament. The A team got to the semi-final, then won the plate trophy. We then rushed over to Stockport Power League for Joe's 9th birthday party with his pals and brothers. A football theme, obviously, as if he wasn't worn out enough by playing ten games in a day.
I've never been to the perfect football tournament, there's always something that's rubbish aboout it. Sometimes it's the catering - overpriced rip off burgers, but food and drink was reasonable at Urmston. No, the problem at this one was the time keeping. We were a full hour over by the time we started worrying about getting over for Joe's party.
