Good Luck for the 2016/17 Season

Good luck to all of our teams for the coming season. Please remember it is only a game and that match days and training are for the the children to enjoy, learn and meet new friends. Without referee’s and volunteer assistant referees we don’t have a game so also respect the officials (even if they do get it wrong!)

Information for Coaches/Managers

Free Renewal of Safeguarding Children Certificates

If a coach has previously attended a 3hr Safeguarding workshop they can renew their qualification free of charge using an online course.

Go to for details on how to access the course.

Online FA CRC checks

Clubs can now register to complete FA CRC checks using an online system. This is a quicker and cheaper way of completing FA CRC checks.

Please note that recent government legislation now means that it is the obligation of the club to ensure all volunteers have completed an FA CRC check prior to volunteering with a club.
