Penny had found that she and Terry could go to the West Ham v Bolton game for £1 each and the tickets for the League Cup game against Oxford would be £5 each the following Tuesday.
'It's to get young people to see matches who are not rolling in money' she explained to her Mum.
'You won't get into trouble will you?'
'No, not with Terry.'
'How are you going to get there?'
'By tube to Upton Park, then a short walk to the Ground.'
'So the Football season is starting and summer is not yet over.'
'It's a good time to go. You don't freeze and you can get seats cheaper. Terry says it's really to try and fill up the ground while so many people are on holiday.'
'How did you get tickets?'
'Terry got them through the internet. The tickets arrived today.'
'You may be on television Penny.'
'Could be. We are behind one of the goals. We'll have to record Match of the Day so we can stop the picture if it gets near us.'
'My, my. You could become quite a star.'
'Hardly. Just in a crowd watching a football match.'
'So when is Terry's trial with Millwall.'
'Sometime before school. Early September he thinks.'
'What happens if they think he's any good.'
'I don't know, but he's staying at school definitely.'
'So Penny, you are launching yourself onto the public arena.'
'Yes. It's really exciting. The world needs a new generation to sort out all the problems.'
'Terry's Dad says our time will come in the struggle for human rights.'
'You might not get far watching West Ham.'
'No. But it's a start.'
