FA's 'new' plans, including FA Cup prize money increase Can't Post or Reply Privately

I haven't seen this mentioned elsewhere:
http://www.thefa.com/news/2018/01/09/09/02/fa-announces-new-plans-and-investments-for-2018-090118

There's a lot about 'grassroots' in terms of recreational football but, except indirectly in respect of the increase in FA Cup prize money, no mention of the NLS (I make the point because of the debates in the restructuring section about the lower end of the NLS in general and the decline of Saturday football in particular).

It wouldn't, Mishi, because I deliberately made it 'unclickable'. Something very odd has been happening with the editor today.

No details of the FA Cup prize fund - but without doubt, this could be the most important item

"There are 64,000 mini-soccer and youth football teams. The youth game is thriving, witnessing a seven per cent year-on-year increase in team numbers. We want the first experience of football for all those children to be the best it can be. In order that they can enjoy and learn their football in a safe and fun environment, and also improve the standard of football being played, we are investing to ensure every one of those teams has a Level One qualified coach. We will make funds available to clubs to get their volunteers onto the coaching pathway and improve the standards of their mini-soccer and youth offering. "
Qualifying as a coach has always been more expensive in England than other European countries

To be honest...I'd like to see more money in Vase...as that's where clubs are more likely to lose money through long-distance travelling in the later rounds.

With regard to the Cup, my concern is, whilst we would all want more money, there are far too many stupid owners out there who would budget for a cup run, get knocked out 'too early' and then cut budgets or run up debts, and blame anyone and everyone but themselves.

It does not help that the FA Education department has decided to increase the cost of some resources for Level 1 and 2 courses from January 1st. These costs are going to get passed onto the end user ie those trying to get the coaching qualifications.

You live in a county where the local FA will not let senior clubs have affiliated youth teams, hence there is a much larger fall off of players at above U16 than elsewhere in the country.

In 2014 61% of 11-a-side teams in Gloucestershire were youth teams, only 39% were adult teams.

If you look on Find A Club Full Time all the U18s clubs and below in Gloucestershire have to be registered as separate clubs.

Just ask Gordon Cook about this he will explain.

I can only speak for my own club in regards this, but TBH we prefer having our youth section affiliated separately from the Adult Teams.

That's not to say we don't have a close relationship between the 2 parties, we do.

But it help keeps fines and "penalty points" (ie another excuse to fine you) If one or the other has a misconduct charge for whatever then it doesn't impact on the other
