We must've been 10 or 11, and the parents started arguing and fighting amongst each other and the thing that struck me
was that the kids, us, both teams, just huddled together in the centre circle, each of us frightened for ourselves and I guess for our parents.

And even at such a young age it made such an impression on me that the other people arguing and fighting outside the field forgot why they were there because why they were there were their kids, and their kids were scared and huddled together, opposition and team alike, trying to protect on another.
