Fines Are Fine By Me - Ball

Last updated : 08 October 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City loanee Callum Ball has said that the new fines system introduced by manager Mark Robins are having an effect.

Robins has introduced a set of fines similar to those employed by non-league and Sunday League sides up and down the land as a way of helping to fund player nights out, holidays, tracksuits, keeping the club going etc, and speaking about these fines. Callum Ball who is celebrating his 20th Birthday today said to club journalist Keiren Crowley: “When I was at Derby, there were a lot of fines around the club. If you were late or if you left your kit about, you were fined. 

“But when I came here, I was surprised at the facts there wasn’t any fines or nothing really like that.
“However, since the gaffer has come in, there is a lot more discipline. There are a few fines being thrown out there with one of the fines being if your man scores at a set-piece, it’s a £100 fine. 
“It makes everyone want to work harder. It makes me want to defend corners and free-kicks better but then also attack them better at the other end as well.
“I think it is a really good thing. You don’t want to be conceding goals at set-pieces, especially with the run we’re on at the moment.”
