The Next David Beckham?

Being fans of football, we have been quite keen to get Harrison into some sort of football club. He loves kicking a ball around in the garden, and loves watching it. I also think it is really important to try and get kids involved in some some sort of sport  (says the girl who hated PE and sport at school!) – the exercise and discipline involved is good for them – they have to listen carefully and follow instructions and rules. Most clubs around by us seem to take kids from around five years plus, so when an advert for a local club for children from nursery age upwards popped onto my Facebook feed, we asked him if he wanted to go – the answer was yes!

The club is only about twenty minutes walk from us, and one of Harrison’s friends was starting it as well. His best friend is starting soon so it’ll be a chance for them to see each other outside of school. We weren’t very well prepared. We all assumed for some reason it would be in the sports hall, and hadn’t checked the weather forecast. Thankfully, we chucked the rain cover under the pram but all I had on was a cardi. Half way there, the heavens opened! When we arrived we realised it was on the field and even torrential rain wasn’t going to put a stop to it. It didn’t stop raining until right at the end by which point we were absolutely soaked, covered in mud and frozen!

Harrison joined in for about half the session. At three years old he was the youngest and I think an hour might be a little too much to start with. He was joining in and doing his best to keep up with the older boys, but after half an hour the cold and rain got to him and his friend, so we headed home. He’s asked to go back next week which is good, and we will be much better prepared!!

  1. Awww how sweet! Looks like Harrison thoroughly enjoyed it! Absolutely love football, I was such a tomboy when I was younger and would rather have picked up a football than help my mum in the house. My daughter is the total opposite of me but knows which side her bread is buttered on and is a fellow Chelsea supporter! 🙂 x

  2. Love it! Kids are never bothered by the weather are they. S does Little Kickers with nursery and looks foward to it every week.
    Thanks for linking up with the #WeekendBlogHop!

  3. the things we have to do as parents! I hope you soon warmed up and dried out, it looks like your little footballing star didn’t mind the rain at all! Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

  4. It sounds like he had a great time! My son plays on 2 times and has training twice a week so i know all about getting soaked through at the side of the pitch.
