Yoogali SC presidentPaul Fisher has urged Football Wagga clubs to consider fielding a team in a proposed competition involving Griffith and Wagga clubs.
Fisher has backed Griffith president Angelo Cirillo’s recent calls for a three-pronged structure.
“I’m suggesting we have a local association competition, a regional competition, and then your Rhinos and your Wanderers,” hesaid.
“For what it’s worth, if you just want to play social soccer then play in your local competition. If you want to improve, you can only get better by playing better.”
Meantime, Football Wagga clubs have until November 25to feed through sentiments on the proposed intake of three clubs, including Yoogali SC.
Some clubs support the move, but coaches and players from several clubs have publicly opposed the idea due to travel and the difference in standard.
Fisher, whoalignshis club with Hanwood FC, another club that has expressed an interest in joining the competition, has urged Wagga clubs to strive for excellence.
“Everyone’s asking for a stronger, healthier competition,” he said.
“You have to expand your mind.”
Fisher blamed the standard of competition in Waggafor the Wagga CityWanderers’ poor state leagueresults.
“You wont keep the Wanderers sustainable when you havelocal soccer that isn’t a challenge,” he said.
“Is Wagga serious? Do they want to develop the competition? We know our history, we know what it takes to be competitors. As a club you can make a decision, no, Idon’t want to (take part in the regional competition).We would field a team in the Griffith competition, and in that competition.”
Fisher admitted to fielding imports.
“A lot of people are saying Hanwood and Yoogali import players, that is true,” he said.
“In our policy, we would take on no more than three imports.They’re expected to take on a coaching role with our juniors.”
He fired shots at Leeton United, a club that recently opted out of Griffithby affiliating with Wagga.
“Some clubs have gone open slatherand brought in quite a few players,” he said.
Leeton United president Rod Harrison has denied the claims.
“We didn’t have any imports,” he said.
“They all hate us, but they all want to follow us to Wagga now. If they do it, I don’t think Hanwood and Yoogali will do it half-hearted, they’ll bring their best players.”
