The Thompsons: You had a left foot like a god
These messages are from all of the Thompsons, starting with the one from Sam:
To Huw. You were my best friend. You never failed to make me laugh and always put me in a good mood. You were never upset and played a part in everybody’s life. You touched everyone and you were a full on legend. I have so many great memories with you. There won’t be a day when i don’t think about you. You had a left foot like a god, you could hit the ball to someone from 70 yards away and it would be perfect.
You never wanted to lose even if it was a stupid argument – you would make sure you were the last to have their say. You had a great personality and you never hurt a person on or off the football pitch. Never argued with the ref or you’re opponents and this showed the true gentleman you were. You were a great credit to the football team for both Hepworth and school, always first to the ball and not once did you ever give below 100%. You timed some tackles to perfection, getting both the man and the ball, but there were also tackles where only the man was gained but you were always the first to apologise. I feel so so so lucky to know you as I got to see your soft side, the gentle side which was always loving and caring. You were always living life to the full making the most of every second you had. I will never forget you Thatch and all the memories you gave me. From your best friend Sam! And that will always be true, see you soon in your better place. your life ended doing something you loved and were amazing at. You polite lad! From SAM x
From Andy: I will always remember you as a footballer – and a great one too. On the pitch you were everything I loved – above all a courageous player. You could tackle and head, and always gave nothing less than 100%. But you were a skilful player too – the best taker of a corner kick I’ve ever seen – bar none. If you had to leave us, it’s fitting you did it on the football pitch. It was a privelige to have known you, and you will never ever be forgotten. Rest in Peace Huw. Andy.
