"Your Child's Name jumps up into the air and sends a bullet-like header into the back of the net. For one so small he can certainly jump very high. Your Child's Team are one goal up with only ten minutes to go. They could be top of the league tonight.”

The home supporters were cheering very loudly and chanting the new boy’s name. Your Child's Name, Your Child's Name, Your Child's Name.....” They went on and on.

Then the game took a different turn. Against the run of play the opposition scored two quick goals and with only five minutes left to play Your Child's Team were two-one down. Things looked bleak.
