As you will have been aware, today has been the inaugural CYFL Silent Sunday event and I wanted to provide a short update. Firstly, I would like to thank all the clubs who have supported the event and really brought into the principles behind the day. As a Committee we appreciate the feedback that we have received and at present I am collating everything that we have been sent; we have been contacted by managers, parents, players and referees as well as having members of the Management Committee in attendance at as many games as possible today. Once we have had the opportunity to digest everything we have received, we will review the day and decide upon next steps and I will of course share this feedback. However in the early stages the majority of the feedback appears to be positive and constructive, although has been sprinkled with some negative and disappointing comments which we will be looking to address.
We appreciate that the initiative may not have been to the liking of everyone; however what has been pleasing has been the fact that people have actually been talking about the initiative and the steps that everyone can take to make our game at grass roots better.
