Why dont we as a league, write a feature in the sports telegraph with a brief piece about the local futsal setup , introduce the game in moderate detail so the readers understand what the game is all about and finally, have a few of the teams with kits, looking the part, on view for all to see. Surely this would boost local awareness and increase the chances of some much needed funding to improve the facilities and in turn, thus improve the local game over all!!! I believe the lack of quality facilities only hinders the games development. Second Ave is in much of repair and Kent St’s field of play isnt anywhere near the minimum size required. Although the sites in question facilitate requirements at the moment, we need to be looking to gain financial support from the recognised sport funding organisations to improve the current facilities or find a new site fit for purpose. Im sure the majority would agree, that when visiting Nothern Conference based in hull and the nationals, standards are much higher compared to what locally, the league can offer. Surely our long term goal is to improve in all areas of the game and short term, ensure the increasing high standard that Kevin is trying to achieve through local facilties and most important local players!!!
Finally with high standards being maintained. this would hopefully attract more officials to the game and become an appealling game to officate. But with the minority still not quite realising how important having a qualified official present, we still need to improve a little further in this area. I for one, have gain emense experience from officating locally and regionally. There is no better league on its day! For the development of the players involved and the officials too!
