Kenny Saunders has been campaigning for grass roots football for 40 years and he told Mick Coyle how he feels he may have to walk away if new fees are implemented for junior football teams.

Kenny believes that the council and Premier League teams need to do more to help local children who play football and that there should be a levy imposed on Premier League teams to go towards grass roots football.

He was also joined by Phil Rooney from the Edge Hill Junior Football League.
