'No down side' to header ban, says youth coach

Scotland is set to become the first European country to ban heading footballs for under-12s.

The Scottish Football Association (SFA) could introduce the ban in the next few weeks.

Ricky has been speaking to under-12s football coach Graeme McGilliard, about the idea.
