THE FUTURE of a Futsal league for young children in the county looks uncertain due to the behaviour of their coaches.

The Saturday morning fixtures take place indoors at the Point4 at the Royal National College For The Blind in Hereford.

An incident during the under-eight age category matches at this weekend's round of fixtures has led to organisers questioning whether they should continue to run the league.

In a letter sent to teams in the league Herefordshire Junior Football League Secretary Diane Phillips said: "It saddens me very much that I have to write the following email.

"The Junior League is in the fifth year of running Futsal for under-eights and under-nines and yesterday at the under-eights the attitude and behaviour of certain coaches/managers has been appalling, the worst it has been in the whole time of running Futsal.

"We are wondering after today whether we will run a Futsal competition next season or even finish this seasons competition if the behaviour continues next week.

"Please can you forward this message to all coaches/managers especially the under-eights that were in attendance today.

"There is a Code of Conduct for Coaches that should be strictly adhered to at all times and there is no justification for the behaviour witnessed to day.

"We ask for your support in upholding the standards we have set in previous years."
