If you pay attention to the ‘Front Page’ you will have seen the following announcement.
‘Following a Special General Meeting it has been agreed that the W.M.C.F.L will restart on Saturday, 10th April, 2021. It has also been agreed to extend the season.’
The headline to this article may not be written by Badiel, Skinner and The Lightning Seeds but it is close enough and in all honesty I am more happy that our grassroots football is coming back than watching England play. It’s personal, it’s ours, it us, (well, you lot nowadays as I am too old now), but it’s hard graft and sweat. Giving everything you have and leaving nothing left on the pitch. It’s not having to go shopping and feeling the fresh air on your face whilst you feel the grass underneath your feet. Yes, it’s grassroots football and soon it will be back. Maybe not quite like the old days as we still keep safeguards in place. But, and it’s a huge BUT, grassroots football is coming back. Write it in your diary, calendar or on your phone…. APRIL 10th…… WE WILL BE BACK!
