The photographs taken by Nathan Lopes reveal that one inevitable consequence of playing football on the school grounds during the monsoon is that pristine new football jerseys end up becoming pretty much unrecognisable at the end of the game -because they,and the players,both get uniformly covered with a layer of mud.
The second set of teams to endure this muddying of their pristine new kits were 10B and 10D.They played their first game shortly after the first game got over.10B emerged triumphant from the mud.They beat 10D 2-0 and rushed home to have a bath – rejoicing and largely unrecognisable.Alan Babu and Sujeet were the goalscorers.
