A fantastic football tale has scored a High School of Dundee pupil praise from one of the world’s biggest clubs!
Luc Granier, L4 (P4), made it his goal to create a super socccer story for the School’s Winter Writing Competition, and so set about penning ‘Santa’s Football Dream’, in which Father Christmas’s two favourite teams - Jingle United and Manchester United – play each other.
His entry hit the back of the net with the judge of the competition, the school librarian Siân Lloyd-Wiggins, who awarded it the silver prize in the L4-5 category.
But with Luc being a huge fan of Manchester United, his Dad decided to send the story to Richard Arnold, the club’s Managing Director, and to Ed Woodward, the Executive Vice Chairman, who plays a leading role in the tale.
So when Mr Arnold replied to say that he had read the story and loved it, it was a dream come true for the 8-year-old!
Thanking Luc for the story, Mr Arnold said, “It was extremely well written and very enjoyable. I particularly like the idea of Father Christmas playing a half for each team”, before joking, “although, from the pictures I have seen, he would have to have some amazing skills to compensate for a possible lack of fitness!”
Luc said, “‘I am so happy that Manchester United read my story! I hope my favourite players, David De Gea and Bruno Fernandes get to read my story too!”
