Hi all

I'm wanting to canvass some opinion on a project I hope to start.

I intend to start running 'Football For All' sessions in Cleethorpes in the near future. My aim is to bring people together through the beautiful game and allow people to enjoy some fun and friendly football regardless of age, gender, race, nationality, religion or sexuality.

If I was to start a session in a local, easily accessible venue, how much interest would there be?

Hopefully if we get enough people we can look to organise some matches to raise funds for charity and other worthy causes.

Initial sessions won't cost anything as it'll probably be in a park, the only expense will be to myself buying a ball and possibly some bibs.

If anyone is interested in playing or getting involved in another way then please feel free to get in touch.

Thanks

A good idea, but would take an awful lot of planning. Insurance, legal clearance (working with children etc). Costs ( goals or hire of a pitch). That's just off the top of my head. Not being a party pooper, just unfortunately the realities of today.  Hope it goes well though as it is the sort of thing youngsters today could do with.

Good luck


Why?

Thank you for your kind words, it sounds like a tall order admittedly but if it was easy it wouldn't be worth doing.

I'm willing to give up a good chunk of my spare time to make it work

Why did you think it necessary to talk about gender, race,nationality, sexual orientation(!) or religion?

I cannot for the life of me think why you possibly link all that to a football coaching session.

Age groups are all that is required surely?

I admire you for giving up your spare time but it saddens me to think everything has to have this pc crap attached to it.

Does his original post really need picking apart, he's trying to do something positive.

It's not really coaching, it's designed to be a bit of fun and a social opportunity for people from different backgrounds to meet and have a bit of a kick about.
No hidden agendas, no brainwashing, no 'PC Crap' just using the game to help bring a community together.

Not everything positive is good though is it?

Full marks for giving up his spare time as I said, but it is not good to reinforce this pc madness that has infected everything. Why should sexuality be mentioned, have you any idea? Or race? Or religion? It is a football kick about for God's sake.

Jesus Christ! What frigging harm is it doing if he elaborates about football for all? It might actually do some good.


History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.

This thread is evidence enough that you shouldn't invite any older people to it. That age group are so ungrateful.

Yes it might do some good. I love people doing good things. I am a very public spirited person myself, and have been since I was very young.

What I don't agree with is why the original poster has the mindset to bring religion, sexuality, race, gender,nationality into a perfectly innocent appeal to start a football kick about in the local park.I am intrigued as to why he thought it necessary at all. Is he just following a trend that those buzz words have to be included in every single thing we ever try to do? "Everyone welcome" would be a good catch all statement.

I suppose it is a comment on social attitudes today; I appreciate I will be out voted on things like this, but I like to voice my opinion on them nonetheless.
