7v7 Football Goals - in the beginning we had "Jumpers for goalposts""Jumpers for goal posts"
When impromptu games of football took place in by gone days jumpers were used for goal posts. All who played in those games will remember the many squabbles that took place with every shot that was within inches of the jumper come goalpost. To put a stop to those incessant arguments a soccer crazy kid in the late fifties produced a makeshift goal post from off-cuts of wood and some Woolworth's pea netting to create the very first mini soccer goal.This boyhood football goal eventually led to the Plastic goals we all enjoy and use to day. That lad grew up and went on to make the first lightweight safe plastic Mini Soccer Goal. Strong and stable the goals that were impossible to knock over, light enough to carry in a small bag and with the addition of a patented net fixing the goal allowed a football pitch to be set up anywhere at anytime. From that first wood and pea netting football goal the small sided game "Mini Soccer" was created which led children's small sided games and 7v7 junior football.They say imitation is the best form of flattery and the concept of safe plastic football goal posts for children has been copied many times over the years but none have come anywhere near to the strength and longevity of the original ITSA GOAL posts. Made in the home of football Sheffield they are now in the thirtieth year of production.
