During the weekend I spend a lot of time playing football, on saturday morning I often play with brazilian friends on small pitches next to the Ricoh Arena, in the afternoon or in the evening I can play with the Erasmus Team and, the most important, on Sunday morning I play for London Road SC (Res) in Withley Common, a team playing in the Coventry and Disctric Sunday League ("Football for fun"...). I really enjoy it and it's a good way to meet people from Cov with whom I can improve my language skills. Playing football in Coventry is also a good way to visit the districts (Radford, Wyken, Whitley, Finham,...).
I already played three matches with them: draw (2-2) / loss (7-1) / win (1-4 and my first goal). To follow us, check this website : http://www.coventryanddistrictsfl.co.uk (we play in Senior Three). We train on Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm in the Calundon Castle School (Wyken) on artificial pitches. The playing style is more physical and you must be strong in the air, anyway it's a good experience to play football in a country where everybody is living for it.
All the following pictures were taken before the match against Willenhall Wasps on 27th september (2-2). I'll try to take some new pictures with my teammates next week.
