AS THE SUMMER HAS WORN ON, OUR CLUB HAS BEEN INJECTED WITH SOMETHING INFINITELY BETTER THAN ANY PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUG: YOUTH.
For the past few weeks, we've been lucky enough to have kids hanging out on the pitch—learning the great game and thriving. It has been a blast to see their first tentative moves transform into a little swagger as the matches have unfurled. (Their timing is perfect, since they'll have a league of their own this fall with the launch of the Fairfax Police Youth Club division of Irish football.)
In the meantime, these new boys of summer can roam the pitch with the big dudes and dudettes...and remind us why we play games, especially this one, in the first place.
We had another fine match last Thursday, as documented below by our friend, photographer Gary Dize. As always, Gary, we appreciate your talent, and we salute your efforts.
