The Sunday mentioned in the last verse of the poem was the first Sunday of the youth football season 2008-09. Hundreds of youngsters were engaging once again into the game that they love. As it was the first day of the season, many were due to play in their very first game but the wet weather dictated events and there were many cancellations. Perhaps one or more players were treading their first steps on a path that will lead them from an ordinary green to a field of dreams.

Come the start of season 2013-14 will be 5 years since I wrote all of the above. Recently I was in conversation with a friend of mine, Bob Pitt, who had been on a tour of Old Trafford.

Bob told me that he was at the unveiling of the Duncan Edwards statue and left soon afterwards without realizing that Bobby Charlton would be staying. He is Wolves 'through and through', as they say and apart from his beloved club his favourite player was Bobby Charlton. It is of Bob's opinion that Duncan Edwards is the only player he felt inferior of.

Bob Pitt was brought up by his dad and uncles to appreciate good players and to love and respect the game. Bob himself with his wife Mavis, at the time of writing, work wholeheartedly for youngsters in football and have done so for many years.

'You are a legend,
you are a great,
and their opinion I highly rate'
RIP
