It Seems I Was Wrong About Ball Boy Charlie Morgan


So it seems I was well and truly wrong about Charlie Morgan (Swansea City ball boy). It doesn’t change some of my points in my previous post. Charlie copied what many professional footballers do every week. Maybe said professionals should think about their actions more, they are after all role models to youngsters like Charlie.

I really do hope that ball boys and ball girls aren’t punished for the sheer stupidity of one boy. It seems the 17-year-old ball boy is in hiding after receiving death threats. YES! what he did was stupid and a tad arrogant but does he deserve death threats NO! that is taking it too far. So it has become apparent that the 17-year-old ball boy is the son of a Swansea director and is an heir to a £42 million hotel fortune.

It has also come to light that Charlie had been boasting online before the game about his plan to waste time. Footballers past and present have said how they would have reacted in just the same way.

Former Charlton Athletic, Leeds United and Manchester City star Danny Mills said “In that situation I would have done the same, got physical and tried to get the ball back quickly. It’s obvious the kid was messing about and trying to delay the game. This lad was taking the mickey. Hazard was under a lot of pressure and frustrated. I don’t think he had tried to hurt the boy. I’ve grabbed balls of ball boys and stewards in the past. The ball boy was not an eight or nine-year-old. He is almost a man aged 17. The way I see it, it was his own fault.”

Let’s see how long this saga hits the headlines?

As I say I do hope many professional footballers think more about the way they act in future.

    Shouldn’t ball boys be`boys` not privileged brats whose parents have money? Who allowed him to be there? That should be a position of privilege that is reserved for kids who have little.

      I totally agree and I hope this isn’t taken away from those young boys and girls who do truly deserve the chance.
