"COUNTY' or 'DISTRICT' ??


We often get queries from parents about how their child can go to a trial for a 'County' team. These queries are often about younger players. Please note that County teams are for U16 and U18 players only.

Younger players can represent their District - which District this is depends where the school is located. 

This website does NOT carry information about District affairs - however you can find the details for each District's officers here.

SAFEGUARDING

If you have any concerns regrding the Safeguarding of young people in football, please do not hesitate to contact our Child Welfare Officer, Steve Swinyard

The FA has commissioned a dedicated NSPCC free helpline for adults who were victims of sexual abuse in childhood within the football industry.

Staffed by independent, experienced NSPCC professionals, the helpline will offer support and guidance for adults who were victims of childhood sexual abuse within the game at all levels from grassroots to Premier League and is a safe space for any further whistleblowing.

The helpline is available 24 hours a day on 0800 023 2642.

Trained staff will offer support, advice and guidance, and will refer cases on to the police or other agencies as appropriate, such as if a child is in immediate danger.

Referrals of concerns about recent and non-recent incidents in schools’ football should continue to be made to ESFA National Welfare Officer Sarah DaCosta sarah.dacosta@schoolsfa.com tel 07960500723 or directly to The FA’s safeguarding team via safeguarding@thefa.com
