Club Chairman Paul Freckleton was presented with their Charter Standard plaque whilst training at Hall Park, Eastwood on Wednesday 28th June by Nottinghamshire FA's Football Development Officer for Broxtowe, Tim Jones.
Paul said of the award "We are all really pleased to be awarded the FA Charter Standard Award. I would like to thank the coaches committee members and Jake, the Club Welfare Officer for all their efforts and hard work. We are looking to grow the club and with Charter Standard status it will allow us to move forward with our plans."
Charter Standard remains an important part of The FA's aim to improve the experience of players in Grassroots football. All clubs are encouraged to achieve Charter Standard status, and to maintain this through the Annual Health Check process each year. One of the many benefits is that all players are coached by FA qualified coaches who have valid Criminal Records Check (CRC), Emergency First Aid and Safeguarding Children certificates, as well as their coaching qualification.
Any club who are keen to apply to become Charter Standard can get advice from one of the Nottinghamshire FA Football Development team:
