Jeff I was just standing talking to Bill, when John came over and said he would get him as he supported Middlesbrough. Bill tried to move out of the way but John hit him and a fight broke out, it was not Bills fault, John started it. John I saw Jeff and Bill talking in the yard and went over to say hello, but Bill swore at me and said I was stupid. I shouted back at him and he hit me. I tried to go back into school but Bill caught me and kept hitting me, it was not my fault. Julie John told me that Bill is always picking on him and bullies him. John never gets into fights.
