Grassroots football coaches must be praised for their dedication and supported in their development, according to Gareth Southgate.
The FA’s Head of Elite Development acknowledged the efforts of thousands of coaches right across the country when he spoke to Club Website.
Ask any England fan what was the most important event for the future of our national game in recent weeks and it’s more than likely they will tell you it was the draw for Euro 2012.
Yet the man in charge of English football is not so sure. For while he craves success in Poland and Ukraine next summer as much as any England fan, David Bernstein believes The FA’s National Game Strategy for 2011-2015 is equally, or perhaps even more important.
Club Website are delighted to announce a new partnership with the Football Foundation, the UK’s largest sports charity.
The new partnership will see the introduction of a brand new fundraising platform for all of our English clubs and teams.
Investing in grassroots football facilities can help bring communities together and teach valuable life lessons, according to Premier League referee Howard Webb.
Webb, who earlier this year received an MBE for his services to football, was speaking at the opening of a new £1.2m football complex in Huntingdonshire yesterday.
Boldmere Falcons celebrated a “proud day” on Sunday as their new third generation (3G) artificial pitch and changing room pavilion were opened.
FA Chairman David Bernstein officially opened the new facilities at the home of Sutton Coldfield club, whose website is powered by Club Website.
