In our house of boys they talk football, play football, and the 26 year old even does it for his job.
With this, and living between the football mad cities of Liverpool and Manchester, I was destined to have a pitch instead of a lawn, but little did I know just how much football would be played on it.
I don’t mind our boy and his friends playing in the garden but they can kick a ball quite far and it often ends up in the neighbours garden, which is a nuisance for them considering they have no young children. What could we do?
I found a solution, Open Goaaal!
This is a goal net with a difference, a background net of 10ft high with the goal set in the centre. A net far higher than our fence, just what we need.
Lets get started…
We unpacked and laid out the pieces ready, then read the instructions. Watching the online instruction video was a real asset too.
You need to take your time, two people and a couple of hours ensures a sturdy construction.
And before we knew it….
The weather had been awful the week we were trying to erect the goal, but the boys made the most of it.
Here are some updated action shots now the weather is better. The Goal has been up all winter and is very sturdy.
Thanks for our Open Goaaal it’s an asset in our garden, roll on summer and our usual football tournament.
