Dat er meer dan voetbal is, bleek maar weer eens uit een mooie brief die we ontvingen van een van de deelnemers aan de Hattem Trophy.
May I take a brief time to express my thanks to you for organising a fantastic football tournament for young players from five countries. East Grinstead Football Academy who played as U15 representatives had a fine time and send our best wishes to you for your hospitality and kindness.
As our playing kit suggested we have an association with Crystal Palace F C and they have asked me also to offer their thanks . Most of our boys come from London and we were impressed by the sensitivity shown by V V Hattem officials to the news from home over the weekend. Our opponents in the U15 Cup Final FC Gobelins deserve especially gratitude. In a show of solidarity our team and there?s linked arms after the final to pose for pictures. They offered us their cup , a lovely gesture from a great set of young people.
I attach some photographs that you may use in whatever way you feel is useful. Once again thank you so much for your hospitality to the boys and their supporters.
