LENARDS NEW BOOTS
BY LLEYTON PELLIGRA
Lenard is 5 years old and old enough now to play soccer. His mum took him to the local soccer club to register him for the new season.
Registration Today Blacktown Soccer Club
Lenard has watched his older brother Ted play and has always asked his mum “When can I play?” His mum would reply, “When you are 5 years old Lenard you can play.”
At registration his mum had to fill out forms with all his information such as Name, Address, Phone Number, Date of birth and medical Information.
But there was one thing worrying Lenardâ€&#x;s mum, she forgot her money to pay for the soccer fees so she had to go back home and grab the money.

When Lenardâ€&#x;s mum got home she went and grabbed her wallot and checked if she had the money and she didnâ€&#x;t.
She was puzzled and Lenard was constantly nagging her, when suddenly !
She saw money on the floor. She picked it up and more money was on the floor then Lenard said, “Mum it‟s raining money out of your pocket. Then Lenard‟s mum remembered that she had put the money in her pocket! So they went back to the soccer rego and payed the soccer fees Lenard was so excited
YAY YAY YAY
He was given in the gear he got, a pair of soccer shorts, socks and a ball, but no boots. Lenard asked his mum about his boots. ”I can‟t play soccer without some boots Mum! When do I get my Boots?”
â€œWhen we have finished here with the registration Lenard we will go to the shops and find you some groovy boots!â€? Lenard way very excited.
With all forms completed, rego paid, Lenard and his mum headed off to the shops to get some boots. First stop was rebel Sport and „Wow‟ what a great range of boots they had.

There were all different brands available and many different colours. Lenard‟s mum asked him what colour he wanted and he‟s reply was, “PINK!” ”That‟s fancy” said his mum.
The salesperson asked Lenard‟s mum if he could help them and what were they after. Lenard excitedly said “Pink Soccer Boots!” The salesperson said “I have just the right pair for you out the back.” So he measured Lenard‟s foot and went out the back to get a pair of Pink, Black and white Nike boots.
On his return he opened a box and as soon as Lenard saw the boots his face beamed with a huge smile. “They are so cool, can i try them on?”The salesperson fitted the boots onto Lenard and got him to walk and run in them to make sure they were comfortable. They were perfect! His mum asked him if he wanted these boots and his reply was a huge “YES PLEASE.”
