When it comes to participation, staff like to get involved too and once a week a group of us like to get together to play mixed football on the Astros. There is a huge range of skill and everyone is welcome, but we would all agree that we have an enormous amount of fun. For that hour we get a chance to forget how busy we might be, forget about the pile of marking that is waiting for us, and get to socialise with our workmates while getting to know each other in a more relaxed and fun way.
Last year we were unable to play because of Covid restrictions and it has been fantastic to get back into this routine again on the pitch. Although the final score isn't the most important aspect (maybe that depends on who you ask!) last week a hat trick from Mr Walters and two goals and an assist from Miss Horton are surely worth a mention! The PFA are thanked for making a donation which allowed the team to purchase new bibs and balls.
