Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 9:38 AM

The WACFL is entering into an exciting partnership with Directions Workforce Solutions in a bid to attract city based footballers to country areas to take up Appreticeships and Traineeships as well as playing football. 

The idea came about from Directions CEO Ian Eardley who was aware of a large number of city based footballers regularly travelling to the country to play football each weekend, "We thought it made sense if a country community channelled the energy and money they used to pay players into an Apprentiship or Traineeship, it would be a better outcome for all involved.  Not only would the team get a footballer, but the community would get another member or family to intergrate into country life which would have a far greater impact."
