Willett, Brook, Vardy, Root, Ennis…full stop?

You don’t have to like sport to dislike this example of the erosion of public investment in our young people.

“Danny Willett enrolled on a local council sports development scheme that was tasked with getting Sheffield youngsters off the sofa. It worked. Willett, Kell Brook, Jamie Vardy, Joe Root and Jessica Ennis-Hill were among the local youngsters who benefited…
…Though sadly, none of the local youngsters will be able to benefit from the scheme that first projected Willett to that Green Jacket. It came to an end in 2011, a victim of local government cuts.”
