Artist's Description

Yesterday’s “Back to Mascot” function brought back memories.
.
It was particularly warm (Call it hot and humid.) on “Back to Mascot” Day (yesterday) and seeing the grassed area, beside the school and in front of the assembly hall, brought back memories of some fun lunchtimes, in the (then) extra long grass.
.
The ‘kids’ (pupils) and I attempted to kick the ball around but the grass was close to being up to their knees.
So it was more just a “push-and-shove-and-giggle” game kicking as much grass as soccer ball.
Wouldn’t do it now but I very much remember needing 10 minutes or so, after lunch-time while “Drop Everything And Read” was on, to recover from ‘losing’ the huge amount of perspiration that had built up out there.
.
There were also memories of those weekend games, in the Protestant Churches Competition.
Whether true or not, some pupils in my (3) school soccer teams had complained that there was no weekend competition for them.
So I found the Protestant Churches Competition and entered them in that.
It also meant that I had to qualify, within that particular competition, as a ‘junior’ referee.
.
Only once or twice were the games allocated to the grassed area behind the school.
.
