Spoilt kids have lost it

Daily Record - - NEWS -

A SCHEME that lets kids’ foot­ball teams field more play­ers if they’re get­ting thrashed has been slated.

FA chiefs hope the “power play”, which al­lows teams to in­tro­duce an ex­tra player when they are los­ing by four or more goals, will stop young­sters get­ting too up­set when they are los­ing.

But the scheme has been blasted by par­ents on so­cial me­dia. Brent Pet­tit wrote: “We are grow­ing a na­tion of pam­pered play­ers.”

The FA said they’d had pos­i­tive feed­back “so far”.
