The East Riding County FA Youth Council are recruiting!! 

The East Riding County FA believe having the views of young people is a vital part of developing football at a grassroots level which is why we are thrilled to announce we are now recruiting young people aged between 14 and 24 to join our Youth Council.

The Council that was formed last year has representatives from all aspects of football including coaches, referees, those involved in coaching disability football, and female football. 

After running for a year, the Council is now established as a committee and is an excellent addition to the County FA, acting as the voice of young people within the County.

We are seeking enthusiastic and proactive individuals to be part of the team to undertake roles within East Riding County FA to help contribute to our continuous ambition of developing football in all areas including; disability football, women & girl’s football, coaching and refereeing along with other priority areas we are striving to develop and improve across grassroots football.

The Youth Council will help the County FA to achieve their goals and will also have opportunities to attend events such as County FA run events and much more in an attempt to raise the profile of the impact children and young people can have on local football.
