Heading the ball


Oct 15, 2012
With the latest studies suggesting constant heading of the ball can be dangerous I would like to see all under 16 games having headers outlawed.

I introduced sponge balls to training sessions 4 year's ago as I did not want the under 11s attacking the ball which had normally been pumped to overweight proportions,Indeed even during games I insist to them let the thing bounce first then attack it.

Been playing for 15 year's and I avoid heading it most of the time,It bloody hurts.
