It was reaffirmed that Canberra’s possible inclusion in the Hyundai A-League was postponed for the forseeable future. The idea of a separate, stand-alone Canberra team in the National Youth League was canvassed, but economic factors were identified as a major impediment at this stage
Capital Football and the FFA might be so excited they put this story on their website, I'd be ashamed and embarassed, and every parent of every aspiring boy in the U10 - U15 Representative football programs and those aspiring to such heights will see little "growth" as the headline suggests in this undynamic model.
So joining with the regional SNSW is good for business - and it sure makes sense for those regional towns to reap the benefits of coaching and playing against the stronger teams from Canberra - but again the major point in Canberra football remains.
How is it that Capital Football are unable to come up with the vision, the desire and the plan to give our boys post-15 a pathway. Maybe Southern NSW should take over Capital Football and not the other way round!
We've achieved the first base for the women, through the W-League. Although we were initially rejected from that league, nothing could stop our intelligence, resource gathering and great leadership and vision to get us in - and rightly so.
Where is the plan to build on what Canberra United has achieved or is this it?
How come we don't have the skills, intelligence, desire and vision to make a pathway for our boys? How many years have Canberra been unable to make any headway? And the final point in the story quoted above, put in as an after thought when the story should be:
FFA and Capital Football dismiss all hope for boys development pathway in Canberra - again!
Playing Albury and Wagga away post 15 is not a pathway is it?
Interesting Eddie Senatore is now on the Capital Football Board - Eddie is one of the drivers behind the Boomerang Futsal Club that plays......wait for it, wait for it....in NSW (Sydney).
It can be done - we now have the talent on the Board who can implement Futsal pathways, different costs for outdoors we all know that, but why not use the talents on the new Capital Football Board for the outdoor game!
Can't be THAT hard to get a youth team can it?
