As if the Burnley area hadn’t had enough excitement for one day, not only did Reads United perform at Padiham in the morning but they were somehow also able to summon up enough energy to perform again at the smart Burnley Campus in the afternoon. How do they do it? People were heard to gasp.
Once more, hundreds of children were entertained and informed by the dynamic duo. Once more, a girl won the penalty shoot-out trophy. Was this sheer coincidence? Was this because I was the goalie? I think not. It is simply down to my inspirational anecdote about Lily Parr breaking the American goalie’s arm when he goaded her by saying women couldn’t shoot.
