'Hard Work, Does Pay Off'
In a short there wasnt really much to know about Oscar. He was a working man with a Wife (Melissa) and his son and daughter (Jake Stewart & Francine Stewart) and worked your average 40 hour week at a warehouse just outside of Dunswell. His day involved a 6:00 am wake up followed by a shower, shave and brush before supping a piping hot coffee and leaving the house for 7:00 am. He would arrive at work around 7:28 am via the East Yorkshire Bus from Hull to Dunswell before clocking in and starting work at 7:30 am. precisely. As a 35 year old man Oscar knew his dreams of ever being a professional footballer had come to an end somewhat 10 years ago despite his 1 year at North Ferriby United as a U16's player. But it never stopped him watching the game, football was his religion and he followed every live televised game on Sky Sports then later on watching Match Of The Day and The Football League Show. Oscar followed his home Club Hull City and was now watching them grace the heights of the Premier League thanks to Geordie man Steve Bruce and Egyptian owner Assam Allam.
During his youth days Oscar spent every minute of his free time playing football whether it was with his friends or on his own, if you gave him a ball he would practice. When he was around 17 Oscar started studying for his coaching badges, first gaining his FA Badges then progressing to a National C License. Lucky for Oscar his parents were very well off and covered the extortionate fee's of his courses. Upon completion of his C License he then aimed for his B & A Licences and after a swift 2 years he achieved that height. At the age of 20 Oscar held a National A License to his name and pushed himself to progress further. It was at this time his Parents wallets really took a hit as it would cost almost £10,000 to complete his Continental C License. After 1 year Oscar completed his Continental C License at the cost of £10,000 and moved himself on. His Parents covered the cost of his B & A Licenses before drawing the line there. Oscar needed to garner £50,000 to cover his final course fee to gain his Continental Pro License but never found the money and gave up on his dreams at the age of 24.11 years later and he was working in a Warehouse, what went wrong he? asked himself looking back. It was only until tonight that Oscar would finally get the chance of his dreams.
It was around 7:25 when Oscar's phone blurred out the theme tune to Match Of The Day. Unknown Call the phone displayed but Oscar answered anyway, it could be important.
Unknown Caller: Hello Is that Mr Stewart?
Oscar: Yes it is, can I ask who is calling?
Unknown Caller: Hi Mr Stewart, my name is Mike Ashley and I was wondering If your free on the 27th to attend an Interview for the role of manager at Newcastle United.
Oscar thought it must be a piss take and that one of the lads most probably Darren was behind this prank call. He had pranked him in the past and he wasnt falling for it this time.
Oscar: Okay Darren, very funny, I'm not in the mood for one of your piss takes again.
Unknown Caller: I can assure Mr. Stewart that this no Joke, we was sent your resume by a James Bridge, If that rings a bell?
James was an old friend who lived in Hull, we grew up together before he moved away to Newcastle with his missuses at 25. Surely he couldn't of sent it in to Newcastle United.
Oscar: Yes that does ring a bell, so this isn't a joke then, you really want me to be be a candidate?
Mike Ashley: No, I can assure you that this isn't a joke, Are you free on the 27th Mr Stewart?
Oscar: Yes that's fine, I would love to attend and thank you for calling
Mike Ashley: That's no problem Mr Stewart, I look forward to meeting you in person, take care now.
Oscar hung up the phone and sank into the couch, his mind had not yet processed what had just happened. He jumped up and cried with pleasure at what had just happened, Melissa ran into the room to see what was going on and Oscar explained "I've got a job interview with Newcastle United to be the next manager". Melissa ran to him and hugged Oscar wiping the tears of joy of his face. Later that night he laid in bed thinking to himself. In 3 days he would be travelling to Newcastle to meet with Mike Ashley about being the new face of Newcastle United, That night Oscar never slept a wink.
