South Coogee Junior Football team in WA has been stripped of points because the players are too good
& # 39; These are young boys who just want to play & # 39 ;: destroyed junior footy team has stripped all their competition points because they are TOO GOOD
- South Coogee Junior Football Club has been stripped of its premiership points
- It was reportedly done after the players of the A division refused to move to the B division
- The B division team is struggling to win its league games
- The WA Football Commission even wanted the competition to do the exchange
A junior football team has been stripped of its chance of being a premiership because its players are too good.
The West Australian Football Commission has stripped the Year 10 A division team of South Coogee Junior Football Club of all its premiership points and has given them a $ 500 good behavior bond.
This was reportedly a reaction to five of the six A-team players who refused to go to a B-division team, who had difficulty winning the league games.
This means that each team playing against the South Coogee A team will automatically be awarded a win in the remaining six games – with a victory margin set at 60 points in advance.
The WAFC's attempt to even beat the competition has destroyed players and parents.
"It's just a shame, because these are just young guys who want to play footy, yet they're forced to face the politics behind the scenes at such a young age," a club source said WAtoday.
The West Australian Football Commission has stripped the year 10 of South Coogee Junior Football Club.
& # 39; And the WAFC and other officials wonder why so many people turn their backs on playing other sports such as football.
& # 39; The reality is that both teams are likely to leave and not play next year because of all this. & # 39;
The football team was split after South Fremantle junior league leader Mark Brookes moved a proposal to WAFC in February this year.
The permission was granted on the condition that both teams must be competitive.
South Coogee & # 39; s A-division team was selected with those who wanted to move to a higher level and the B-division team had players & # 39; just wanted to play the game with their friends & # 39 ;.
Initially, the teams would play in A and C divisions, but South Coogee had to be & # 39; second & # 39; team in division B after another Willeton football club withdrew from division C.
The C division team had to play in the B division.
Troy Kirkham, WAFC & # 39; s Executive Manager for Youth, Community and Game Development, said that junior rules for competitive balance have been in place for more than ten years.
& # 39; The WAFC has been working with South Coogee Junior Football Club since the start of the season to achieve a competitive balance for their Year 10 teams, so that the success of one team was not prioritized to the detriment of the other & # 39; he said in a statement.
& # 39; And it did not have a negative impact on the retention of players in the club or between opposition teams. & # 39;
South Coogee Junior Football officials have been contacted for their comments.
However, the WAFC's attempt to even maintain the competition to retain the players did not go well with players, parents, and the junior football club (stock image)
