Governance provides the infrastructure that allows the game to take place sanctioning football in accordance with the rules of the National Governing Body (The FA). We operate a fair and transparent disciplinary system dealing with cautions, sending offs and misconduct alongside a detailed programme to recruit, retain and appoint match officials. We administrate a range of County Cup competitions to offer participants at all levels the opportunity to experience “The Magic of the cup”.
Our Football Development Programme aims to increase participation and raise standards. The FA Charter Standard Programme is essential to provide the structure for clubs to flourish in well administered leagues. We run a comprehensive learning programme including Coach Education, Child Welfare and 1st Aid which trains over 1000 people annually.
