Questioning Government Ministers (video) - Save Grassroots Football


On Thursday I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to speak at Culture Media and Sport Questions. I was keen to raise the matter of the Save Grass Roots Football campaign again, as this was my first chance to directly question the new Ministers appointed since the General Election.

I was pleased to hear a big change in language from the Minister compared to this time last year. It's been an uphill battle to have the Government even acknowledge that there were issues with the funding of children's football. I'll be pushing on this again in the near future if we don't see any sign of a clear commitment from the Premier League to do more, but the national debate seems to be shifting in our favour.

You can watch my exchange with the Minister here:
