Here is a photograph of four young talented footballers.
Tiegan, Kellie, Paula and Phoebe are members of the Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club’s Girl’s Centre of Excellence. Don’t let these charming smiles fool you – they are good – very good – at playing the beautiful game, and they have been selected to attend this month’s week-long England training camps.
If they do well, they may eventually be selected to play for England.
Obviously, each of these young women has talent, and it is a joy to watch them play. But of course just talent alone is not enough. They have trained for hour upon hour, and they, and their parents and families have made sacrifices for them to have this chance. Good luck ladies!
I hope they make it – because they deserve it; and, in years to come, I want to say – with pride – that I am the bloke who took the photograph of four young talented footballers!
