Money ‘scandalous’ in local football

Dyffryn Banw manager Chris Roberts (pictured) believes it is “scandalous” that some players expect wages to play in the lower echelons of Welsh football.
Roberts has been forced to return to the transfer market this week in his bid to bolster his injury-hit side’s top six target in the Spar Mid Wales Division One.
But he has been restricted in his search, knowing that many players are merely looking at what’s being offered off the pitch as opposed to on it.
“It’s scandalous that people should be offered money to play in the Spar in my opinion,” he said. “It’s made the job difficult to try and bring players up to Banw.”
Roberts has lost his brother Mark with a recurrence of his shoulder problem and Tom Foulkes (broken foot) and youngster Rhodri Davies (broken collar bone) face long spells on the sidelines.
Banw’s form has been indifferent and Roberts admits that a few choice words have been said in the changing room following some of the recent performances, but he has seen the players respond with a draw against high flying Berriew.
“I think we can turn the corner in much the same way as we did last season when we had three points from nine games so all is not lost!” he said. “We have got another couple of young lads joining us in the next month so the squad is looking much better. The league is a lot stronger this year and we know the level we have to reach week in, week out.”
