MEDS Boys and Girls Visit Wembley 2009
On Thursday 6th August two under 10s teams from Urmston Meadowside (boys and girls) realised a "once in a lifetime" dream by playing (and winning) at Wembley.
Once inside the stadium the teams were led out through the players tunnel into the home of football. After a group photo involving almost 1000 young players the first teams were led onto the pitch (pausing on the way to meet and have a photo taken with the legend that is Sir Geoff Hurst.)
Both the boys and the girls team won their respective games on the hallowed turf in front of 2,500 screaming parents and family members; and for the boys team this topped off a fine day which had seen them concede no goals at all throughout the day.The teams were then led up to the royal box where all the players received a commemorative medal.
Playing at Wembley is an honour that many professional players never experience so for the youngsters and coaches involved, it will be a memory to cherish. All in all a fantastic day out and an experience that will no doubt be handed down through future generations as we can all say "We were there!"
