John does 927 keepie uppies aged 11

John Wallace aged 11 does 927 keepie uppies, a new personal record!  Using both feet, it takes him about 9 minutes to get closer to his current aim of 1000.  He makes it looks easy, but we all know it isn’t.  Well done John.  KEEP IT UP!

Football on the Beach… again!

Jeremy, a regular team player with Essex amateur team Thornden Park, and Richard give John some keepie uppie practise on the beach…. after a rather large portion of paella!

You can see two short videos on YouTube.

Now John seems to have mastered keepie uppies with both feet, it is time to try a few headers – not bad for a first attempt!  See it on You Tube by clicking here.

John beat his keepie uppies record on the beach today, 13th September 2009.  749 is the new number to beat, and guess what, we happened to get it on video, so you can see it on You Tube.

John Wallace practises his football keepie uppies

Football keepie uppies become more interesting as John decides to include a few tricky moves into the mix…. see a short sample of a warm up here on You Tube.

Training on the beach

Training is fun – taking a jog on the beach with Jagger the dog. 
A couple of small sharks were seen here in the water on 31st August 2009!  Apparently no threat to bathers, but the authorities forced them far out to sea, to be on the safe side.

John constantly trains in the garden!

John beat his record of 493 keepie uppies whilst visiting friends at Wentworth Golf course in England on 14th August 2009!  The new score to beat is 554….. we will let you know when that happens!  In the meantime, you can see a short video of just a few keepie uppies on You Tube.
