Clubs left out in the cold

I SPOKE with a club on the weekend and they stressed a review was needed on player numbers. The executive of a club takes on the role each year thinking players will train, play games and do their bit.

But alas the poor executive who raises the money for jerseys, shorts, socks, strapping, insurance and buses for the year is being let down because the players who sign do not honour their commitment to the contract they have signed.

The clubs set them up to get dressed and run out and play the greatest game of all. After they have left the football fields, the committee is still there cleaning up and preparing for the next home game.

Players, please. No matter the sport, get behind your committee or your club may fade away next year or the following year. Some of the clubs on the Highlands have gone through difficult times and have held on to hope the club will stay on for another year.

The sport will be lost if the players do no help out.

Money doesn’t always make a club survive.

The fight is on for final spots and Cowboys, Clermont and Middlemount have the pressure. The Bulls have the monkey off their back and should pick up where they left off.

Get down to your local footy.
