  • I know how you feel. I have a granddaughter, Hannah who runs for Hampshire. She is 14.

  • I don't have any grandchildren.... just a grand-dog.... and I'm proud he sits, stays, and recalls.... not the same I know.... just similar-ish :)

    But, I can imaging just how bursting with pride you are, not only because she's your grand-daughter, but because she's played so well to earn that place. Well done that girl!!!!

    Scarves and rattles to the ready .... :)

  • You must be beaming :D Well done Emmy :)

  • Well done Emmy.My niece Hannah.who is very much into football but not good enough to get far at it has trained as a referee she is 14.Each Saturday she is off reffing and earning a bit of money doing it she gets between 12 and 20 pounds a match.

  • Grandchildren are a complete joy. Well done Emmy (keep kicking) and Hannah (keep running). Our grandson is almost 1 so is trying to walk which is wonderful. He now has two teeth and we are proud of him always. xxxx
