If you have children up to 8/9 yrs old and limited garden space, this is absolutely ideal!

Good, sturdy powder coated metal frame which easily folds flat for storage when not in use. Easy to assemble, in fact the only difficult part was unravelling the net when taking it out of the package!

The net is fixed to the frame by attached velcro tabs. Don't know if this is enough so i added a few plastic cable ties and it is now much more secure.

The size is perfect for my 6 yr old in a 30' garden and at £20 (which is what I paid) is unbeatable value for this kind of quality. I have seen similar size goals (that don't even fold) for double and even treble this price! Really can't praise it highly enough!

Having previously been happy with purchase of the smaller version, I was happy to purchase the larger goal now that my children are older. However, neither my sons nor myself are very impressed with the quality of the net. The net saggs and where it is not sagging there are holes in the net where the football has gone straight through. As my sons are 4 and 9 years old, their kicks do not have the power of older children/adults. If the net had been of better quality, then the footballs would not have made a hole??!!

Mitre Easy Fold Goal was delivered with no instructions, but it didn't take long to work out how to construct it.

Size is fine for 6 - 11 year olds in a small-medium garden.

However the framework is weaker than other makes we've used, and one of the posts started to shear within a week, and got worse, so it is being replaced.

Disappointing for the price.

Easy to assemble (although needed to 2 people to make it easy) and sturdy. Just the right size for my two boys aged 5 and 3

I received the 8ft (2.4m) wide by 6ft (1.8m) tall goal and this is a really good family football goal which has withstood some pretty awful weather over the last few weeks when it has been left outside by accident. The goal is a really decent size and as it needs to be secured in soft ground and needs a fair bit of room we have left the goal over at Grandad's house for when my children visit there of a weekend. I have attached a few pictures of the goal and the box that it comes inside to show it set up. The frame is painted with a weather resistant paint and the net is attached with little velcro attachments around the frame although I think we will be taking the advice of another reviewer on here and securing the net with some cable ties too. The frame can be folded for storage and easily dismantled if wished to be stored back inside the box in bad weather. A really decent sized family goal that has already given plenty of hours of fun and looks set to give plenty more.

I assembled this in five minutes and it is robust and easy to cart around the garden. It is a superbly-priced, stable goal for younger kids. Another reviewer suggested it would do for 8/9 year olds, but I reckon it is more like 4/5 because the height is only 3ft and clashes with head height!!! Would recommend though.

If you have kids that love football and a garden then this is ideal for you.

If you have a garden which is your pride and joy with flowers just waiting to be snapped in half then this is your worst enemy!

It is brilliant.

We bought one for our soccer mad son years ago and both he and me (his Dad) spent hours in the garden playing football.

This has a few benefits.
1. It gets the kids active.
2. It can get you active.
3. It’s a good socialising game and
4. Allows you to bond with your kids.

This is an above average garden goal and net.
It’s made from metal and coated with a 'rweather proofing coating'.
DO NOT SUPPOSE FOR ONE MINUTE that this means it’s rust proof.
We had one and left it out in the elements and rain as you do and it rusted.
The goal comes in for some hammer and gets scratched, dinked, bent and that thin coating is soon exposed to water and oxygen- result RUST.

Our original goal had a drawback tit was cumbersome, took up a lot of room and was awkward to put away.
(Never for one minute think of dismantling it once you have got it erected it is simply not worth the time and effort)

BUT and this is a big BUT this goal has a neat trick up its sleeve.

The end unlocks and allows you to fold it up making storage a dream compared to the old inflexible ones.

The result is that you can easily store it and have no excuses to leave it out in the rain to rust.

The result is it will last 4 times longer than if you leave it out to the elements and next doors cat.

It stands up to some hammer- not quite if you bend it like Beckham (God Bless him) but should stand up to the kids and grownups with ease.

Recommended. Fabulous for 4 to 8s IMHO.

I have a similar experience to other reviewers really.

The item is packed well and looks sturdy enough, but the frame doesn't seem to quite fit together as it should. Not normally a problem with some items but when you see the "Unsecured Goal Can Fall Over Causing Serious Injury Or Death" you start to worry a little. Great that they warn you, but not so great when you don't feel that confident about the goal due to the fact the parts don't fit together smoothly. It does seem as if Mitre have cut corners to keep the costs down, which is a shame. I'm sure parents would happily pay a fiver or tenner extra knowing that the product is of a better quality.

On the plus side the net does fold down so won't be open to the winter weather as our previous goal did.

There are some plus points to this Mitre goal, ease of assembly, foldable, etc but also some negative ones, the quality of the fittings doesn't seem great and the goal is wobbly after construction; a real concern considering the almost hysterical "death" notice.

First things first, putting this goal together was pretty simple. It comes in about 9 pieces that slot together and takes about 5-10 minutes to set-up from the box. Once it's up, it can be folded flat for convenient storage by simply removing a locking pin from either side. I've only used this goal so far indoors, so I can't testify to the sturdiness of the included pegs but overall it's quite light. As such, a normal inflated football is going to knock the goal out of place if it his the bar (without the pegs).

The box it comes in isn't ideal for re-use so if you're not planning to leave it stood up or folded away then it's not the best piece of kit to transport (for say an afternoon in the park). Overall though it's a good size, easy to put up and generally does the job.

NOTE: The pictures on amazon are highly misleading in terms of size. Pay attention to the dimensions to get an idea of how big this is, as I was quite surprised at how large it was when it arrived.

Okay, so this comes disassembled, so if you struggle with IKEA flat packing, you might struggle with this. However, good labelling means that this can be easily set up even by an ape with non- working opposable thumbs like me, so not a real issue. Yes, it's a little bit wobbly, but that's an inevitable consequence of the item's great strength, which is its collapsibility. A real space saver, for anyone without a yard the size of Kew Gardens. It's great fun and very practical IF your children are the right age. And here' s the catch. You need to measure the goal. And I can pretty well guarantee you will underestimate the size of goals your children will be used to. Up to age six or seven, this goal will work beautifully...hopefully right up to nine or ten. But by the time your kids are at secondary, they will be used to playing with bigger goals. So CAVEAT EMPTOR...check out the size!! If the size suits, this is a sure fire garden winner for youngsters and ageing David Beckhams to bond over the school holidays.
