‘Best route forward’ for women's football

NEW goalscoring guidance designed to save the ‘integrity’ of the JFA Combination’s Women’s Division has been implemented for matches involving strugglers Grouville FC.

For the remainder of 2022/23 all fixtures featuring the eastern-parish outfit will have a goal-difference cap of five, to avoid heavily one-sided results which could deter player engagement and lead to the loss of another team.

Portuguese United Women’s withdrawal led to a return to a four-team division last season, although Grouville’s efforts have long been hampered by player shortages and there was a real threat that they too would fall by the wayside.
