The London Evening Standard
February 23rd, 2022

As well as a coming-of-age story, this is an account of social displacement by gentrification...It’s still rare to see a play about young, black, working-class youths on our stages: rarer still to see one in which they are celebrated like this.

A promising debut about football, friendship and gentrification...While the writing doesn’t always dig deep, the piece gathers momentum thanks to Daniel Bailey’s crisp direction and the strong performances.

The play is a triumphant take on flux and football in a fast-changing south London neighbourhood...Under the direction of the Bush Theatre’s associate artistic director Daniel Bailey, there’s barely a moment of silence, with laugh-out-loud dialogue overlapping as each boy fights to have the last say.

It’s difficult to believe that this is Tyrell Williams’ debut. It’s intelligent, nuanced and the dialogue is tight...It’s a next-level coming-of-age story.
