We have just got back from the Schools England Hockey Cup competition where my son's team did very well finishing third; they were the first team in the school's history to get to the finals so we were already on a high. My DS has a medical condition which puts him at a disadvantage to the others but he has always been conscientious and keen to play no matter how much pain he has been in but no matter how hard he tries, he will never get higher than County Level because his body is just not designed for stamina or speed. Nevertheless, we are inordinately proud of his determination and were delighted to be told that he is to be the Captain of the 1st X1. I want to shout it to the world as this is such an honour and a recognition of his hard work but I have been told to keep it under my hat until the official announcement which is some way off. I think I'm going to burst so I hope I haven't outed myself so much on here that I have let the cat out of the bag!
