Goal 'Assist' - Low data

A short explanation as to why goal assist data is low

The recording goal assists was decided to be used to encourage and promote team work.  With the winning of football matches relying on goals being scored, it is natural that young and impressionable minds want to be the hero to score those goals.  This factor can be detrimaental to team play and promote individual importance.  We therefore decided to monitor and reward goal assists.  Unfortunately the recording of this data was not started until the winter league, and as we have not been scoring many goals in this challenging group, the data so far is minimal but will continue to grow from this point on.

To clarify, a goal assist is awarded to the individual who made the last pass to clearly set up a goal scoring opportunity.
