'Terry have you been to Millwall?'

'Sure. I went yesterday.'

'What did they say?'

'They were very helpful. They thought I was too young to be taken on but knew I had great potential. They advised me to stay at school and to complete my education.'

'That sounds sensible.'

'They also said I should play football outside the school.'

'How will you have time for that?'

'There's a Sunday League they told me about. I've been given a letter of recommendation so I should get a team quite soon.'

'I'm sure you'll find a team. Everyone wants a goal scorer.'

'I was told being in the Sunday League I will probably be spotted by a scout.'

'What use are the Scouts?'

'Not Boy Scouts. Football scouts who are on the look out for talent. But I said Millwall will be my first loyalty. They liked that.'

'You're going to be busy Terry.'

'Yes. But it's what I love.'

'I suppose I take second place now.'

'We're established, Penny. My Dad likes you and you know I do.'

'So am I equal with football?'

'Sure. I would never be much good at football without you. You keep up my spirits.'

'Thanks Terry. You keep my spirits up as well.'

'And another thing, Penny.'

'It could be that Millwall and West Ham swap divisions at the end of the season.'


'Yes. Maybe some of the players will swap as well.'

'The trouble is Millwall are the wrong side of the river.'

'Yes. But that's bound to change'.

'How's that?'

'If you're on that side it will seem the right side.'
