First Time Out
Well, we can’t just measure the success of the team by the first results, but the enthusiasm was beyond measure. The mere thought of playing a game of soccer with the neighbouring school brought a shout of excitement from our students.
As of yet we don’t have an official name for our team, but that did not matter. What mattered was that a game was on. Hidden somewhere in one of the suitcases were a number of uniforms, donated sometime ago, waiting for a moment like this. Well, it did not come too soon for the team.
It was an enjoyable event, tense at times, but that’s to be expected as we were the visitors playing away from home. In reality, the game was a lot closer than the 5-3 recorded in the books. No trophy here, but we left our heads held high and with a box of juice for each player. In the grand scheme of things, this was a well-earned prize.
