In January 2015 Motspur Park Football Club achieved the prestigious FA Charter Standard Club status, confirming the club as one of the best run and forward thinking clubs in the county. Following on from our first accolade as a club, in February 2016, after only two years of Motspur Park FC’s inception, we have been awarded the second level of Charter Standard – the Development Club Award.
The FA Charter Standard scheme is a best practice guide that sets standards of coaching, administration and child protection for all clubs outside the Football League and Premier League. It also recognises the club’s commitment to coaching, player and coach development and the raising of standards of behaviour in the game. Further information about the FA Charter Standard scheme can be found at thefa.com/charterstandard
But we won’t be stopping there! Motspur Park FC is striving for the highest level of Chartered Standard, The Community Club Status!
As part of the FA Charter Standard Development Club application, the club has created a five year development plan to ensure the ongoing growth and progress on and off the pitch. Within the development plan are targets to:
- Raise the profile of the club within the local and wider communities
- Introduce new teams each season; providing safe, secure football for all
- Recruit managers, coaches and committee members enabling future club growth
- Ensure the ongoing training and development of all club members
- Continue work to develop existing/new facilities
