Part 2 of our special feature segment continues as Straight Shootin' LJA and JBK take a deep dive into and discuss the latest Government mandated Lockdown due to the rising number of Coronavirus (Covid-19) cases in England.
They look at the lockdown resulting in the cessation of all football and Sport in general at Grass Roots level and ask how much of an impact did the first 3 month lockdown back in March have on those areas in particular.
LJA & JBK discuss some very concerning facts and figures concerning the detrimental impact on young people, along with looking at the potentially detrimental impact this 2nd lockdown (Nov-Dec 2020) could have on the mental and physical health of young people and the potential long term effects on Grass Roots level football going forward.
