If not he will gan back to Whitby and tell all his pals how he thoroughly enjoyed himself and that the experience will stand him in good stead for the future.
He has been on regular coaching courses through his school holidays since he was 5 years old. He told me that SAFC was by far the best course he has been on.
I must admit that I was very pleased with the whole set up and its a massive well done to SNQ and his staff for all the hard work that gans into all this.
Have many board members had kids at these trials and what are your thoughts???
I believe Bob Murray is a big supporter of the Foundation and has put his hand in his pocket on a few occasions when the moneys needing topped up.
Good to see its going well and good luck to your grandson marra. Can he even sign for Sunderland in the future is Whitby within 50 miles of Sunderland?
