Nearly 100 players within the club enjoyed free coaching yesterday as part of the Club’s contribution to celebrating Sir Bobby Robson’s National Football Day. Many thanks go to Richard Cooper, Mark Smallman, Emily Quimby, Andy Parfitt, Jeff Sutton, Simon Steptoe, Steward Wood, Matt Love, Carl Parfitt and Danny Hickinbottom of Staffs FA who put on enjoyable sessions.
This was followed by the First Team playing the first match played at the home of Wyrley Juniors FC.
In the evening a very enjoyable insight into the thoughts and lives of past and present footballers was held – much thanks go to Ron Flowers, Marieanne Spacey and Mike Townsend for giving up an evening for us. Thanks go to Scott Lyons for being a tremendous compere. Thanks also go to Kate Foreman, Carys Foreman, Graham Foreman, parents of U8 Lions and U12 Rhinos for helping in the kitchen, Jacqui Parfitt and Charlotte Parfitt for selling sweets; Trish Bradley, Julie Pearce for serving behind the bar and anyone else I’ve forgotten.
Well done to everyone who helped and attended.

Insights from players last night:

Ron flowers – we didn’t dive in our day. If someone went over the top in a tackle, you accepted it, waited for your opportunity and got your own back later.
Marieanne Spacey – my secret skill is I’m brilliant at making sandwiches with any filling.
Mike Townsend – my dad just stayed in the background at matches when I was younger. But my mum once went across the pitch to confront someone who was suggesting that players take me out!
