Road to the top

My son was always far more on it that any of my friends’ boys, even from a very young age. We started taking him to Little Kickers, which offers football to youngsters from the age of about two upwards. That, really, is about as early as you can start, although my boy started when he was three. I used to take him every Saturday morning to a class of about 15-20. Even then he was miles better than the others, so we started looking at grass-roots clubs in the area that suited his level. By the time he was seven, he was starting to play competitive football on a weekly basis. That’s when he was scouted for the first time.

Love of Epsom & flames of war

Punters, like mothers giving birth, tend to remember only the excitement and success of the event, consigning the ever-present pain and anguish to the back burner of their consciousness. For this reason I shan’t regale you with the many disasters of my punting career but, instead, shall concentrate on a few of the rare and unusual successes that came my way over the past 55 years.
