This is going to be a bit of a rant about last season to get it off my chest so I can go into the new season without this sitting in the back of my mind.
3 of my family members and myself signed up last season for MVF Football at Bexhill, the first part of the season was good, playing games, getting scores, then it went downhill a lil, the coach left/was removed people were coming and playing who were not registered and i guess they got a kick out of running rings round a bunch of fat blokes.
By the end of the season most people had stopped bothering to turn up and the whole thing became a shambles, matches were being changed or teams were just a mixture of the two top teams from the pitch league and it was very demoralizing, infact at the end of the season i put on weight due to the depression i was having with what was going on and the way I felt just like cannon fodder and no one knew what was going on.
Then our new coach joined, Philipe, he started straight away making sure those who were playing were registered and even had a confrontation with a couple of the non members playing.
On Friday was registration, and there was a noticeable decline in members, but I do feel the actual people who turned up are there for the weight loss, play football and to meet some new people, not to just get a buzz out of running around a bunch of fat blokes as i said earlier, having had Ben actually do the registration as the Coach was at some sort of training it was refreshing to see that they are looking forward and the lack of numbers hasn’t put them off running MvF at Bexhil.
I am looking forward to the new year and hope to not only push myself further but also enjoy playing.
Bring on Spring 2019 season and good luck to all players!
