My 11 year old son (who plays football in the garden) has now gone through several sets of goal posts - usually by pretending he's Ya Ya Toure and putting his foot through the ball whenever he gets the chance and smashing the posts in the process. I was wondering if any Blues out there with sons have found some decent goal posts that have lasted - there are plenty on the internet with decent reviews but most of them seemed aimed at younger kids. I'm also not sure what size - the FA recommend 7 foot x 16 foot for his age range but this seems excessive.

Any constructive advice welcome

Have you tried Samba goals, they are what are used in Junior football, but don't have to made full size as the way you put them together you can reduce the size, I have had a set in my garden for a good 4/5years and I have an 18 year old that smashes everything no finess and a 13 year old who hits a ball like an 18 year old and the nets have stood the walloping, the post have anyway

So google Samba goal posts, one thing they aren't the cheapest, depending on budget
