“To all at the FA,

“Please accept this email as my formal application for the as-yet undisclosed position of Manager of the England National Football Team.

“As you will see from my CV, I am a sports enthusiast, yet I felt my enthusiasm dwindling tonight (Monday 27th June 2016) as I, along with millions across the nation, saw our beloved team fall to the minnows that are Iceland.

“It is my intention, should I be given the opportunity, to re-kindle the enthusiasm of the nation for the round-ball game (and this comes from a rugby lad)!

“I feel like the perfect candidate as I have guided my school football team, Weedon Bec Primary School, to an unbeaten 2015-16 season! I have been ably assisted by Antony Witheyman, hereby referred to as the Head, in delivering a season full of promise! We have come up against mighty teams such as Woodford Halse CE Primary Academy, a game that was played as a curtain raiser to the England-Iceland game here in the village of Weedon Bec. With a strong showing from all involved, the lads kept in tact our unbeaten season, what heroes!

“I look forward to hearing back from you all!

“Yours, in the name of English football,

“Sam Chambers (next England manager)”
