Leeds Silver Steel Sparrows play Stars Awards Evening at Elland Road
The older Sparrows, of course were in some cases already on their European tour, at work, or on holiday. So Sparrows were Kristen, Lucy and Deangelo. I called in a couple of favours; Wanda and Vicky had signed up. I would say fresh from their last day of term, but fresh is probably not the right word. I put out a call to Foxwood [who have, in general, benefited from Sparrows support in the past] and Sophie and Varshika came to our rescue. And a few others others tried to help.
Varshika [Sheeks] didn't argue when I asked her if she would play drum-kit [and she hasn't played since before she went to uni!]. She just said, "I'll change my shoes".
Thanks to the parents who juggled their lives and braved the rush hour to bring the players the Hospitality Suite. We played as the Stars arrived, and they listened from the balcony above us. Shaina's face at the end told us we were just the ticket!
