Reader letter: Back young footballers

editorial image

Ilkeston ­Football Club were right to issue a warning to certain so-called fans that give the club a bad name, particularly at away games.

The abuse also aimed at a certain academy player with Forest connections, I believe by Derby County supporters, has to stop!

These lads are mainly teenagers who need encouragement as they try to make their way in the game.

The Robins Academy is gaining a national reputation as the club to join for youngsters hoping for a future in the game.

When sold on, they could make the club a good income helping The Robins to have a future.

Give them a break please!
