Shrimp and two veg

Youth Team
Feb 24, 2011
Never seen a thread about the day out with SUFC for the ball boys, so i thought i'd write one. I joined my boy's team Benfleet Villa under 14s with SUFC staff today. The boys were ushered into the ground, they have their own little changing room and are given a pre match chat and tracksuits to put on with caps. Its just off the tunnel entrance so they got to see plenty of players walking to the changing rooms. Then a briefing out on the pitch and told what to do out there. As the players were warming up they got a photocall with them. Kick off they get to line up and form either side of both teams as they exit the tunnel for the k.o. then half time its back into their changing room behind the two teams. Repeat for 2nd half. They stood on the pitch clapping the players back in and then go and get changed. Fabulous day out for them and the SUFC staff were superb. Got their team lineup in the programme too. Thanks fellas. Ps.. my boy twice gave it to a Drizzle player who wouldnt pick it up and my boy did mention the crowd were giving the player some stick for time wasting lol

Talking to the staff, they DID mention that the kit for the boys needs updating and would truly appreciate a sponsor's donation. Anybody ?
