With a dreadful hangovers Amir & I headed off to Chigoli for training.
This was my first chance to see how education fitted into the Chigoli structure. George is currently a teacher at Bishop Mackenzie & you could certainly tell. He led a unit on relationships/partnerships that included personal and business. Both for Chigoli as a business & for the children themselves. Meanwhile George had separated the core of the the under 16's to go for a chat with Innocent. He had just returned from the U.S. obtaining a degree in leadership. This was to try & get an understanding as to why people are shy on the pitch.
I watched the first hour of training before joining in with Amir and the under 12's. Many of whom had much better skills than I. Not hard I suppose! Crossbar challenge was a favourite, with push-ups if you missed.
I then went & watched the overlapping shooting drills being ran by Tom & George. I was very tempted to join in but would have embarrassed myself. The purpose of these drills came from the game the day before. Chigoli looked more like Arsenal trying to score the perfect goal.
The difficulty in teaching the children responsibility & teamwork as part of their education. Is when it comes to being a centre forward you need to be selfish.
The sun had remained out all day & I certainly felt it. Coming back to the house I grabbed some food & watched Ricky Gervais with Scotty & Don.
When the power went out at 20:00 both Scotty and I decided to call an early night.
