Thank You

Season 2023 - 24

Thank you from the East Riding FA

With the 2023 / 24 season drawing to a close we would like to say thank you to the players, volunteers, match officials and supporters who have made this another season to remember.

Your contribution has been remarkable, and you are the beating heart of grassroots football in East Riding.

Over 22,000 people participated in grassroots football in our county this season, and they were enabled by an army of volunteers. We are indebted to you for your dedication, sacrifice and passion.

Without you our great game simply doesn’t happen.

In July we will celebrate some or the regions local heroes at our annual East Riding FA Grassroots Football Awards. They have made outstanding contributions to football this season and reflect positively the impact that so many of you have made in our county.

It has been hard at times, and we recognise that. The weather has significantly impacted the ability to stage games at key points this season and we thank our league officials who have worked hard to ensure that fixtures are played. We also thank the team officials who have had to adjust, be flexible and combative in the face of adversity.

The number of match officials we have recruited this is encouraging, particularly at a young age. We need your support to continue though. The retention of our newly trained referees is crucial for the future of the game, and we need you to continue offering encouragement and showing respect.

Sadly, we lost a number of local heroes from our grassroots football community this season. These people have made a great contribution to grassroots football for a great many years and will be sorely missed by the people who benefitted from their time and efforts.

What ever level of football you have been involved in this season and whatever your contribution we thank you and look forward to seeing you in season 24 / 25.

The affiliation window for next season will be opening shortly and to help you we get Match Ready we have compiled a handy guide of everything you need to complete in preparation.

Get Match Ready for 24 / 25
