When I was a kid I loved football and I loved Manchester United.
I played for Villa Fc.
One day at training I saw a woman then at the end of training when I was walking out of Villa Fc she walked over to me and said I know that you love Manchester United and I work for them. Would you like to play for Manchester united.
I said of course and then she asked me if she could speak to my parents so I called my parents over. She asked my parents if they wanted to live in Manchester.
My parents said yes. It was my 2nd flight ever .when I got back home we all started packing.
We are going tomorrow morning. I never had so much butterflies in my stomach with excitement. We were on the plane before we new it.
Then my mam whispered into my ear we are at Manchester and we are ontop of the Manchester United Stadium .
Then one wheel dropped and then 2.
Then the plane stopped. When I was walking out of the plane there was a man at the door .
He said James O’Byrne.
I stopped. I asked him in shock. How do you know my name. He laughed and said I know everyone’s name. I said everyone’s name. So I kept walking.
When I was 17 years old I was on the Manchester United u23 and I was about to go onto the big Manchester United.
In my first match for Manchester united I was named on the bench vs leicester City.
Then 3 days later I was off the Manchester United U23 team.
My first football match was against Sheffield Wensday in the FA Cup and it was brilliant.
I scored 5 goals. I was delighted and the United supporters were delighted and impressed.
I was so good at football at a young age I was named on the first team. My parents were nearly the happiest people on land aswel as me.
I was starting to get very rich. My mam and dad lived in my house. My big sister Zara is a dentist.
She has 4 kids. 3 girls and their names are Matilda Eamer and Romey. And she has 1 boy called Harry.
They are on a plane now going to Manchester Airport.
2 days later.
I am playing against Arsenal in the Europa Cup final. When I was walking onto the Arsenal pitch I was scared. What would happen if I played badly today. We got tip for the first half Jack willson took the tip .
He passed it to me and the game was on. I ran with the ball very quickly and ran to the left wing my manager shouted up to me pass the ball and run back to midfield.
But I didn’t . I Passed it and ran past the fastest Arsenal player I got the ball back
from my team mate and kept running with the ball and ran into the Arsenal defence all of the defenders were on me but I still scored. We won the Europa Cup.
After that great game the Manchester United supporters called me baby cavany.
We were back in the Champions league. But we still know that the Champions league
is very hard to win.

We all felt scared walking into the dressing room in Wembley stadium .We all kept each other company as we were putting our kits on I was the captain for Manchester united . All the other players trusted me.
Then we all got in a line. We got tip for the first half. Before I passed the ball to start the game the Manchester United supporters started singing Glory glory man united. then I passed the ball .I passed the ball to Jack Wilson. Liverpools 2 brilliant players are Daragh Nevil and Luke Nevin. Them 2 are marking me. Then I ran past Nevin and Nevil.
Then I striked the ball and it just went wide .
Then we had to go to extra time. In the last minute of the game I had the ball and I ran with it. just outside of the box I got a free. I kicked the ball very high. Over the wall.
The goalkeeper dived high AND I PUT THE BALL TOP CORNER. At the end of the match I took a picture with all of my family .Now I have The biggest house in Manchester.
