Football mad Midlothian family create incredible pitch in garden
A football mad Midlothian family have created an incredible pitch in their garden.
Lewis Knight, 31, his partner Shannon and their 6 year old Justin moved into their Gorebridge home in November last year, and after a difficult pandemic, decided to do something extra special.
Lewis explained: “ I own Instapic photo booth and events which has been tough with lack of work throughout the pandemic although it’s starting to pick up now.
"My son and I love our football and were new to our estate just moving in in November 2020, so I went with the street football idea for him and his new friends to play in.
"It’s taken us many YouTube videos, advice and help from my friends to get to where we are now.”
Both Lewis and Shannon both tragically lost their fathers during 2020 and so named the stands Big Davie’s after Lewis’s dad, and Little Rae’s stand after Shannon’s dad.
Lewis added: “I hired Off Street Art down in Birmingham with this idea of using his graffiti to finish off the garden, which he excelled our expectations.
“Our friends and neighbours are loving it and the response has been fantastic although closer neighbours might soon stop passing the ball back over the fence!”
Lewis concluded: “We’re genuinely feeling optimistic that Scotland can qualify the group stages.”
