All teams have one, no matter what level of youth football, there's always a player not quite at the level of the rest of the team. The Weak Player. At the lower end of the ability ladder these players are often made scapegoats for bad results. At what stage do you cut them loose, if in fact you do? Is it fair on the other players to persevere with a weak link. I understand that this is subjective to the level and aspiration of the club. However, the problem is universal at all levels. Unfortunately, someone has to be the worse player.
