Associations) both of which organise regional Inter-Association
competitions involving boys and girls.
How we started ...
We began our activities 120 seasons ago when a group of schoolteachers
came together in 1891 to replace Rugby Football competitions between
their schools with the Association Football alternative.
Too many schoolboys were aquiring serious injuries playing the Rugby
game and thereby missing their half day at school and half day at WORK
whereby they supplimented their families' income.
The Association Football Code was considered to be less dangerous!
