Saints at School

Jason Dodds (Captain of Southampton football club) was presenting the certificates and prizes at Mountbatten School this year.

Format was much as usual but a very engaging little speech at the end from Verity Nottingham who opened her remarks by thanking Jason and commenting that "it must be nice for him to get his hands on some silverware for a change".

She then went on to admonish him slightly and pointed out that when one of his colleagues had presented the prizes a couple of years ago all the girls had received a certificate and a kiss. This remark obviously ensured that she was the only girl to receive a kiss that evening as a smacker was landed as she presented him with a thank you gift.
