Once again, the combined league games (11th to 16/17th grades) were cancelled because Wellington City Council closed fields. These teams have not played since June 21st - one month ago. We have complained to Capital Football about these older teams always being the first ones cancelled. It's particularly disappointing for the 15th Grade Rangers as they have taken the initiative and organised the team themselves and run their own practices. These boys are at an age when kids stop playing sport, and they are pretty disappointed at having played only four games so far this season. We think Capital Football should be doing all they can to encourage teenagers to keep playing. Perhaps some of the younger teams or seniors (heresy, I know) could miss out next time Wellington City Council fields are closed?
