of course the kids footy is competitive but as already said, premier league it aint, there is no 10 appearance minimum for a trophy,if they are in the sqaud, they should get a trophy!
This is exactly what the manager said, if you're in the team you get a trophy!!
Although it's not just the trophy thing, like I said before he's not the best player in the world but he gives 100%
He doesn't mess around like most of the boys, he doesn't swear at the other players. He goes there and gets on with it so to speak.
It's the manager's attitude as a whole towards my son and some of the other players. He has frequently started matches late, because he's waiting one particular player to turn up. To avoid putting my son on, even though he has enough to play the match, by passing my son and putting him on the bench until the last 5 or 10 minutes of the match.
There's also the issue of wearing shin pads, shin pads must be worn by all players. One kid has not worn shin pads for the whole season for either matches or training. After being told if you don't wear them you will not play any matches. But then is allowed.
Man of the match trophy, to my son "if you'd have scored that goal you would have got man of the match". To the other boys, Man of the match trophy handed out for missing the goals and various other silly mistakes. What the hell is the difference!!!
After match talk, to all the other boys all individually named , hands shooks..."you played really well, want to see that again next week"....to my son no hand shake, pat on the back or nothing just a few negative words "I have reservations about you". I wonder how may 10 years olds actually understand what that means.
This manager is crap, he has no skills for dealing with children, children thrive on positivity. He has constantly put my son down, and some of the other boys too.
I'm so angry about this, I feel so gutted for my son. He's 10 years old for gods sake...the manager told him a couple of weeks ago he was getting a trophy, and now he's telling me "oops erm yeah I haven't got one for your son, but all the others have got one".....ggggrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!
