South Africa’s World Cup captain Aaron Mokoena says that young people should “follow their dreams” of becoming a footballer, but warns them not to do so at the expense of their education.
Mokoena fulfilled a childhood ambition when he became the youngest ever player to represent his national side – a record he still holds – and he told Club Website that other youngsters can do the same.
Things will be getting a bit hairy at Club Website HQ next month, but we’re not talking about websites or football… this is Movember!
Every Movember men around the world grow a moustache for 30 days to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.
Football needs you. That was the English FA’s message when they launched their latest campaign to attract new coaches to the game.
The good news for them and the home nations’ other FAs is that Club Website members are ready to answer the call.
Schools and grassroots communities across the UK face drastic cuts in sports funding following the government’s comprehensive spending review.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s overall budget will be cut by 24% – from £1.9bn to £1.1.bn – over the next four years while Sport England, who distribute funding for grassroots sport, face cuts of 33% over the same period.
Here at Club Website we’re always interested in investigating the big issues in grassroots football on behalf of you our members.
In line with this we want to hear your thoughts on the key issues in the amateur game before we embark on a series of discussions with the game’s governing bodies.
