“Come to the BBC!” was the rallying cry on the morning of Tuesday, June 4th. Was this an opportunity to be famous on television?

Sports Dinner 2014

Bill Shankley the legendary Liverpool manager famously stated: “Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more serious than that.” As an intelligent man it’s most likely the case that Shankley was not being entirely serious when he spoke these words. None the less, the sentiments expressed by Shankley hint at how important it is to keep our affairs in perspective. Enrichment activities form an important part of student life at MPW and the College football team is often a fine showpiece for us.
