Last Thursday I had the pleasure of taking 4 of our older students to view the Field of Dreams site.
We had a discussion about what the new facility will give to the students, and what it will mean to them. The students told me they were looking forward to playing as a team together and being able to practice their skills and their sports leadership. The students also felt that the field would provide better connections for the local community and local businesses. One student even declared the field as 'our field of potential'
The students told me about the football tournaments they used be part of, and are hoping these will start again once the pitch is ready. They also said it would be good to have a football mascot and asked if we could have a Goat called Bob, but that would be another fundraising project!
