Monday I spent some time in a primary school doing reading and math with some young chaps. Tuesday I got a chance to train with Hillceltic United FC and help run the session with Barry. And today, Wednesday, I had my first training session with the University of Limerick Men’s Soccer Team. The standard was quite good. I would say the level of competition felt like I was at training back home, which is definitely a positive thing. I heard I can also play for the Freshers team, as I am technically a first year ;). So it looks like I will be enjoying my football and having a bit of fun this year. It’s always a blessing to be able to enjoy the sport you love. The lads were super friendly as well. Plus, the practice pitch is right outside my window, a 1 minute walk. As far as my football goes, I am in a pretty ideal situation. I look forward to getting as much ball in as I can this year, and enjoying the game to the fullest. That’s what it’s really all about. Enjoy yourself doing what you love, and life will sort itself out. After all, I guess that’s how I made it here.
