“I think it’s vitally important to be good people on and off the pitch, something that is sometimes lacking in the modern game.”
Logan Marsh said the JGFA had the full support of Douglas United Football Club. “We encourage DUFC members to join in these sessions to continue developing their skills during the off season.
