Rovers or United? Which football team does the boy support - in secret?
Words to story
"Can you keep a secret? I had to for a long, long time. My family were all Boxton Town fans, but I supported a different team -- Boxton Rovers."
"It was very hard being different. I had to be very good at pretending when both teams played each other."
"I couldn't cheer when my team scored. I had to go to the bathroom and celebrate there."
"I couldn't be sad when the other team scored."
"I could only have my team's posters on my bedroom wall when I was alone."
"If someone came to my room, I had to be quick to change how it looked."
"I had to have a secret wardrobe too. I hid my favourite team's clothes behind the other team's."
"Birthdays were terrible too. I always got football gifts for the wrong team. But then my life changed."
"A billionaire bought both clubs in my town and made one big team -- Boxton United."
"Now I can relax and enjoy all the matches with my family. I go to the bathroom a lot less now too."
