Here is Mini’s (aged six) Story
I was playing football in the playground and scored a goal. I went to get the ball from the back of the net when someone shouted my name.
I turned round to see the scout from Middlesbrough Football club. He asked me to go and have trials to play for their junior team.
I went home and told my mum and dad and we all went in the car to Riverside Park and I got to go in the changing rooms and change in to my football kit.
I walked on to the pitch and my family all cheered as a played football with other children.
They really liked my tricks and skills. So they asked me to become part of the team.
He told me the story was about his journey to becoming a football player!
Further information of the competition can be found on the Al Fresco Kidz blog.
