MetadataShow full item record
The main objective of the present study was to explore the phenomenon of Banter within British football; uncovering the potential positives and negatives to its use. A sideline aim is to also demonstrate a rigorous piece of qualitative research. Semi-structured interviews were conducted on seven YTS (Youth Training Scheme) and 1st Year Professionals at a professional football club in the North West of England. Content analysis was then used to deduce associated psychological theories. Results indicated that situational and content variances affect a player’s response to banter. Plausible links were made to the stress process, cohesion and hardiness. Findings from the present study can be used by sport psychologists to identify banter as a potential stressor to young footballers enabling interventions to be offered.
