No matter what sort of team you’re managing, there’ll come a time when using jumpers as goal posts just won’t cut it anymore. Eventually, you will need a set of professional-standard football goal posts. The only question is – what sort of football posts are right for you and your team?
Luckily, the FA has some clear guidelines concerning the sort of goal post that’s suitable for different age ranges, team sizes, and game types. Obviously, a school PE lesson will have different needs than a premiership match, and the type of goal you use will vary depending on whether you’re playing 5 a side, 7 a side, 9 a side, or 11 a side.
So when choosing your football goal posts and football nets, all you have to do is think about who’ll be using them, and why. Do you need full size football goals for training? For friendlies? Or for professional high-stakes league games?
