Your Letters & Pictures
Choosing the right soccer shoes from Eric.
I passed your info about shoes to our tour group leaving for Europe in May. I think your comments answered all possible questions. Noting you re-ran the little piece I wrote on playing in England post WW2, I could have noted that I still play with our Masters group (ages run 50 to 70 plus) at San Mateo HS synthetic turf field nearly every Sunday in case there are any other 50 plus players among your readers who would like to join us.
If you are a competent player and fit we usually have room for 3 or 4 drop-ins if you sign in at 7.30am with KO 8am. This is a good time to play as you get the rest of the day to yourself after the game. It is strictly fun and recreational play with good sportsmen. At present, we allow a few younger players just to make numbers but we are always trying to get a few more in our age bracket to participate.
To your younger readers, soccer is not like some other sports where you stand a good chance of getting seriously hurt at an early age because if you keep yourself fit and keep up your running you can still keep on playing.
