Southampton V Manchester United - 1st December 2018
The trip to Southampton v Manchester United went extremely well at the weekend. For the majority of the children it was their first ever Premier League fixture. The excitement on the bus going up to Southampton was fantastic and there was much debate around the final score and which players both teams would play. Arriving at the ground and seeing the children’s reaction as they saw the pitch for the first time was also very exciting. The game itself got off to flying start and we were very fortunate to see four goals during the first half, which meant our children experienced the roar of a 30,000 strong crowd. Our seats were fantastic and positioned very close to one of the executive boxes where Shane Long (a Southampton player) was sitting. This meant many of our children were able to get autographs. All in all, it was an excellent day and one which I am sure we will repeat again in 2019. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff who came along and supported me, our office staff for helping to get things organised and also the children who did such a great job of representing our school.
