Ben T for his effort in the U10s football match yesterday where he gave 100%. He was on the receiving end of quite a nasty tackle but took it on the chin (literally) and was gracious to the culprit who made the poor challenge. He got up and carried on playing without moaning and won a penalty for our team in the process.
