Volunteer Football Coaches Suspended for Running a Children's Football Cup
12 April 2012
Two volunteer football coaches have been suspended for organising an under 11s football tournament because it allowed children to play competitively against each other. The two coaches who gave up hours of their own time running a junior league were disciplined by the Central Wales Football Association for breaching its regulations following a complaint.
The regulations state that to protect the losing side, the teams must play each other on a friendly basis with no points or league table being recorded. There are similar rules in England imposed by the Football Association but these are for under 8s.
Despite the ruling, however, the Central Wales Football Association has ruled that the tournament could continue this season and the winning team would be awarded a trophy after the final on May 5th. The suspension for the coaches will take effect from next year.
A spokesman for the Central Wales Football Association is reported to have refused to comment.
