Players are the most important people in the sport.

Playing for a team is the most fundamental part of the game.

Play your part and support the FA’s Code of Respect.

These key concepts in the Code are valid for players at all levels.

  1. Players must have a positive attitude at training and at matches

  2. Players must arrive on time for training and matches

  3. Players must display fair play and respect at all times. To all officials, players and parents both on and off the pitch.

  4. Respect any decisions made by coaches and referees

  5. No jewellery to be worn by players during training or matches

  6. Players must always wear appropriate clothing, including footwear and shin pads

  7. Inform your manager/coach if you sustain an injury

  8. Avoid words/actions which may mislead a match official

  9. Players must remember that opposition players, coaches and parents are guests at our club and should be treated with courtesy. Remember that you are a representative of the club, therefore should be setting a good example.

  10. Players must understand and agree to the clubs playing philosophy and team selection policy

  11. Players must adhere to our safeguarding policy which states “Everybody has the right to feel safe at our club” This includes appropriate language!

  12. Any player booked or sent off the field of play are responsible for the payment of fines. The club hold no responsibility for fines incurred.


The club management committee will sanction players who do not adhere to this code of conduct. Sanctions will be:

  1. First offence will warrant a warning. This could be from your coach or club management.

  2. Second offence will be suspended for a period of time, decided by club management committee with possible suspension while the club investigates allegations

  3. Third offence will result in permanent exclusion from the club.

The management committee reserve the right to move directly to the second or third stage if the offence is deemed so serious that this action is necessary.
