He coaches for free
There once was a teacher called 'Fee'
Who coached the kids football for free ,
Maths was his thing
And he knew they would win
When the score at full time was 4-3
Graeme still possesses the turn of pace that saw him terrorise the defences of the Wakefield Promar league back in the early 90’s, great for keeping up with the kids and chasing stray balls. Before he found his shooting boots, he enjoyed being in a hive of activity at the heart of the Thorngumbald Bees defence.
Hailing from somewhere east of Hull but west of the North Sea, he was born a Tiger. Hull City’s recent decline in form hasn’t diminished the passion and Graeme fondly remembers the glory days of Andy Payton and the total legend that is Dean Windass. Apparently, Graeme spent nearly a million quid before he finally got the Panini sticker of his other favourite player: Trevor Francis – Maybe that’s why he is known as the first £1m player!
Although he now lives near Retford, Graeme and his son regularly make the effort to go back to the KC stadium and double the attendance for that game… As a maths teacher, Graeme’s most difficult equation is to work out how many more points they need to stay up.
Another coach who does the job for the love of the game, his team are full of running and play with a smile on their faces, win lose or draw. League winners last season, he is hoping for the same again this time around.
