You say: Mean wardens.

Byline: John Backley

I HAVE just witnessed a very low and mean spirited act.

This Sunday morning at the Netherton Activity centre, approximately 100 parents brought their children, all aged 7-12, to play football. This should be, and usually is, a very enjoyable Sunday morning. Not today.

After the games kicked off, three traffic wardens began ticketing all the cars parked outside the pitches.

As a youth football coach I try to instil into young players a sense of fair play and a way in which the game should be played. Today someone showed them a different way.

If the powers that be wanted to discourage parking all they had to do was have one traffic warden stand outside the ground before kick off.

As a member of the wider community I am very angry that we allow this. Will these parents now think twice about bringing their children because of this
