Questions for the Players….

Our Year 6 children enjoyed sharing their afternoon with SAFC players and wanted to tell you a little bit about their experiences….

I asked Adam Matthews who is Sunderland best player and he said Jermain Defoe, my other question was your best win against crystal Palace 4-2 or 5-2 Billy said it was our best win and it was a surprise.

The best part from the Sunderland visit was meeting the players who are called Adam Mathews and Billy Jones.  Like  everyone else, I asked the players a question, it was ‘How did you get on to the Sunderland football team?’ Billy Jones replied with ‘It was my love for football and my determination to play.’

The best part was when Billy Jones answered my question. I asked “When were you given the opportunity to play for a football team?”  He said “I would always go to the park when I was about 9 or 10 with my Dad and then I got onto the school team and then luckily got to play for Sunderland”.

The most amazing part of today was when we got to ask many questions to two players from Sunderland football club. I asked two questions, the first one was “Have you ever played for another team?” and he answered with “Yes I did, I played for West Brom”. At first I didn’t catch the name but luckily Nicholas out of the class gave me the name. The second one was “Do you like all the players on your team?” and he answered with “Yes I do really, all the lads on my team are quite a laugh and I’m really good mates with them”.
