Year 8 Dictation - Steven Gerrard
A Footballer’s Rise to Fame
Steve Heighway was always good to me. I will never forget receiving a phone call from him early one morning. I was just about to head out of the door to catch the school bus when the phone rang. ‘Steven, we’ve got the FA Youth Cup final against West Ham in two days and we have one or two injuries. We need you on stand-by, so be on your toes.’ I was buzzing, floating on a cloud all the way to school. It was a real pity that I wasn’t required in the end. Liverpool won the final comfortably without me. But I was grateful to Steve simply for considering me. He also organized it so I could do my work experience at Liverpool Football Club.
