Our son has played football for a long time, but has only recently joined a local side. With lots of his friends, he's started playing in matches at the weekend.
We were hanging on getting his some proper football boots until his birthday, but this weekend he was nearly not allowed to play in his trainers. Off we went to a local sports shop and let him choose his very first pair of football boots.
As soon as we got home he had to try them out at the park, he couldn't wait to get there. Now they've taken pride of place in his bedroom, right in his eye-line as he lies in bed and next to his beloved new football.
Is there anything better than new football boots when you're a young lad? I'd love to know if you think there is!
