Readers who recall the article (see here ) about a new football being pinched from some young lads playing on the field, will be glad to read the following from Tom Hancock
"Basically, the kid got his ball back about an hour later so there's no need for Dave Woollam to fork out anything but that was a really kind offer.
All's well it ends well I guess
The offer Tom refers to was in a message from Dave Woollam after the original article appeared.
"Read about the kids having their ball stolen. As someone who was mugged a a kid (and became a policeman because of it) it just makes me so angry.
If the parents of the child concerned can pass on details to you and you to me I'll gladly send money so that he/she can buy a new football.
