I am a chairman for local football club, Methley United. Every sports team around the country playing in open public spaces, are experiencing huge problems with irresponsible dog owners failing to clean up dog faeces from sports pitches.
Through dog faeces players can be hit with toxocariasis, a potentially lethal disease carried in dog faeces. 
We need to protect young children, youths and adults from contracting this disease on sports fields across the UK.
Please spread the word across football and rugby clubs across the country and get things moving, too many councils have tried and backed off. The grassroots sports community should gel together and get behind this to ensure there is a step change to protect our players.
