Fishersgate Flyers FC have again been recognised as a club that is clearly heading in the right direction.
The club has been awarded the FA Charter Standard development status.
Through the hard work of the volunteers we have proved that we have set out to run the club efficiently to a high standard in order to help the players and coaches progress.
Well done to all at the club who give time to help.

RAISING STANDARDS IN GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL...
Launched in 2001, The FA Charter Standard Programme supported by McDonald’s is The FA’s accreditation scheme for grassroots clubs and leagues.
Its goal is to raise standards in grassroots football, support the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding them for their commitment and achievements.
With this in mind, The FA Charter Standard accreditation is awarded to clubs and leagues rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.
There are three levels of FA Charter Standard Awards for clubs:
FA Charter Standard Club for youth and adult clubs: the entry-level accreditation
FA Charter Standard Development Club: for clubs clearly enhancing the quality and scope of their football offering
FA Charter Standard Community Club: acknowledging the most advanced level of club development and football provision.
For clubs who have FA Charter Standard accreditation, the challenge is to progress to the next level or to maintain that level. For clubs without FA Charter Standard status, the scheme provides aspirational points on its development journey.
There is only one accreditation level for leagues: FA Charter Standard League.
The FA Charter Standard League is an accreditation that sets an operational benchmark for FA sanctioned leagues; it was launched in 2009 in partnership with McDonald’s.
