AUGUST 5 and 6 was to be a footballing weekend for my eight-year-old grandson and myself.

First we paid £21 to see York City play Telford.

Unfortunately, we were unable to obtain a programme anywhere which made identifying the players somewhat difficult in a rather mediocre game in a tricky wind.

Next we watched Arsenal v Chelsea in the Community Shield.

Although this was a more entertaining match, the game of the weekend proved to be the Euro women’s final with the Netherlands defeating a plucky Denmark 4-2.

Well done ladies.

Continue showing the men the way.
