Proposal to: Eccles Sunday Football League

Proposal by: Signed: Signed: Signed: Signed:
FC Chandos FC De La Salle FC Roscoe Rovers FC Royal Oak For Grassroots Summer Football

Situation:

With heavy rain and snow causing widespread fixture disruption across the country this winter, many in the grassroots football community have suffered the frustration that has become an all-too-familiar feeling at this time of the season.

Proposed Solution:

Summer football – March to November…….

From March to June and August to November matches are mandatory, while during July, when most families take their holidays, games are played subject to availability of coaches and players with a one week postponement request implicated.

Benefits:

1. To increase participation

 2. To create an attractive modern game

 3. To improve coach education and development

 4. To create a vibrant volunteer workforce

 5. To develop club and school football

 6. To produce more talented young players

Summary:

Bad weather means bad pitches, which means more cancelled games and for young footballers in particular, poorer conditions in which to develop their skills. “It’s a no brainer… lush grass, warm conditions. These are the conditions where kids and young adults will learn the basics, enhance their skills and enjoy themselves.“The alternative, players out all wrapped up, cold, dark, wet and matches called off because the pitches are flooded.”
