The election is almost here. Hooray. It’s time we got down with Elvis Presley’s suggestion of ‘A little less conversation, a little more action, please.’ I’m a big fan of action. I’ve been at this for 14 months, and as a writer who holds the ear of the community each week I’ve been cognizant not to turn this into a hostage situation. For twenty years I’ve talked about politics and social issues and shared insights into my personal experiences, but this is one journey where I’ve had to keep you locked out.

After football trials in Sydney, 12-year-old Max Lambie was selected from many budding Socceroos from all around Australia to be included in the Foxtel Allstar team that recently travelled to Florida for two weeks with Tim Cahill representing Australia in the Disney Cup, an international football tournament.

Max, who has been playing football for eight years, and the other members of the team returned triumphant, winning gold for Australia.

The team played five matches against Columbia, Brazil (two teams), and Bermuda (two teams), and were solid defensively as well as relentlessly enterprising going forward with the inaugural Foxtel Allstars team.

The team capped the international tournament off by being undefeated and Max was voted the players’ player and awarded the Golden Boot for the tournament. ‘It was a team effort and everyone played really well,’ said Max.

Max would like to extend a huge thankyou to his Gold Coast coach Jared Adamson and Byron Bay-based coach Jim Gelagotis (director of the East Coast Football Academy) for their infinite support, encouragement and player skills development.

In addition he is very grateful to Foxtel and Disney for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Maxwell currently plays for Palm Beach FC in the Queensland National Premier League. He trains up to six hours a week in Queensland with a game every Sunday and was excited that all his efforts earned him an opportunity to play with Tim Cahill.
