Sport will never be more important than ‘life and death’, and attitudes around player welfare are thankfully changing

Eva Careiro


‘Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that’

It is without doubt one the most famous sporting quotes ever, by legendary former Liverpool Football Club manager Bill Shankly.

Although made in jest, there has perhaps been an element of truth to it in terms of how sporting clubs and organisations have adopted a ‘win at all costs’ mentality in years gone by – certainly when you look at the very top level of professional sports.

APIL right to call tailgating ‘as socially unacceptable as driving without a belt’

tailgatingBy Becci Snow, Chartered Legal Executive at Hudgell Solicitors

This Wednesday, August 19, marks Injury Prevention Day, a day when the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) is urging us all to think about what we can do to help prevent needless injuries and accidents across the UK.

This year, APIL has quite rightly been placing a major focus on the dangers of tailgating – driving too closely to the car in front – in its work.
