The game goes on.
People turn up to their local clubs, maybe watch a senior game, maybe not.
They send their kids to soccer clubs.
These kids will play until they no longer feel the urge to do so.
They may leave the game entirely.
Later, they may take up fustal or indoor soccer, something to do with their friends, to keep fit.
They may find their way back into a lower tier club, or a thirds team.
They may end up marking lines, or manning the canteen.
They may or may not become fixtures on a hill or terrace.
And when they go, they are replaced by others.
And the game goes on.
