A school is changing how it picks players for its football team.
OK, I'm not the greatest football fan, and my knowledge of the offside rule is non-existent, but...don't you pick the best players for each position?
I mean, how else could it be done?
Saltdean Primary School has announced that instead of having trials to select players for its football team, they will pick players with a range of footballing abilities. Where teams are over-subscribed, players will be picked out of a hat.
Ha ha ha ha ha...!
Oh, wait. They're serious?
One concerned parent, who did not wish to be named, said: “My child was really upset. He plays outside of school but he wants to represent the school.
“It feels like if you’re achieving in sport there’s no celebration of that. There’s a handful of parents who feel very strongly about this.
“When you think of the success of the Lionesses this year it doesn’t make sense.”
Only a handful of parents are concerned? That's, frankly, far more concerning than the bonkers woke decision by the school, isn't it?
