So many of our schools are making extra cash with these pitches, but they are a breeding ground for aggression and should be kept outside of school grounds.

Where will it end, a drive-thru fast food joint with McGCSEs?

Dear lord, you do talk some twaddle, at times; the only "breeding ground for aggression" is what's between the ears of the attacker(s.)

Schools should be encouraged to utilise playing pitches.
We, the tax payers are paying for them and for the best part they remain unused and redundant, encouraging government to allow them to be built on.
Schools should become an integral part of the communities through the use of their facilities by that community.
What usually stops this is unresponsive caretakers who don't wont the inconvenience.

Go see any of these amateur league matches, be it on school grounds, HandyX or on the Rye and you will see the market for this: twenty-something males, many violent altercations and a continuous stream of filthy language. I contend that a school grounds are an inappropriate settings for such things.
A couple of weeks ago two young men decided to have a go in the Rye car park before even making it onto the grass for the match; one came of worst and was concussed with the two teams trying desperately to bring him around without emergency services. When one of the lads suggested an ambulance should be called he was punched in the head and his phone smashed to the ground.
I recommend a trip to the Rye at the weekend to take all this in.
