Writing Competition: Why I Love Football

28 March 2020

You've read Roxy's tale of 'winning the cup', now it's Ryan's turn to tell you why he loves football!

Why I Love Football 

I like football because it’s fun, I've always got a football at my feet from when I get up to going to bed it drives my mum mad.

I don’t care when I’m on the pitch if we are winning, losing, or drawing, although winning is nice, all that matters is I’m on the pitch with my teammates enjoying the game.

Football makes me feel strong and powerful and I like being part of a team. My team recently took part in the flag bearing scheme at Oakwell, it was really exiting and was one off the best days I have had, being able to see the players up close and getting to go in the dressing room made my day.

Woodrow is my favourite player and when I go to watch home games I always look to see if he’s playing.

My wish is to one day play for Barnsley like Woodrow and hearing the fans shout my name, so I’m going to keep working hard for my teammates until my dream can come true.
