the skipper recalls The home subscribed to a few local newspapers which the children didn’t have access Once a week they watched the television A movie mostly They eagerly awaited that day These girls then would have hardly envisaged that they would one day rub shoulders with the best footballing talent in the country When they were hardly assured of daily needs such as clothing and food playing in
