Safeguarding Update

As part of The FA’s work to ensure safeguards are being implemented in grassroots youth football, 7,878 youth clubs have now confirmed with The FA…

Following this process, 30 clubs have been suspended for not providing this information.

The relevant County FAs continue to work with these clubs to ensure that those outstanding coaches and managers are registered.

Head of Safeguarding, Sue Ravenlaw, said: “With this key deadline now passed, efforts will continue to ensure that clubs are implementing all required safeguards. As part of this process County FA reps have started to make visits to clubs across the country. I want to take this opportunity again to thank all the clubs that have responded swiftly and positively to this requirement.”

Staffordshire FA would like to remind Clubs that all coaches must have an in-date FA Specific Criminal Records Check in place by the end of February. Any coach or club not meeting this requirement may risk their affiliation to the County FA.

Please note: Staffordshire FA are on hand to work with any Club or individual throughout this process and beyond. If you require any advice, support, or guidance in relation to any matter please don't hesitate to contact the office on 01785 256994.
