FA Certifies Sheen Lions As A Charter Standard Club

On the 4th December the FA Charter Standard Team let us know that we have been certified as a Charter Standard club.

The FA Charter Standard Clubs programme, was launched in February 2001 and is a core component of The FA Football Development programme. The 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.

There has been a lot of work done, firstly to set Sheen Lions up as a charity organisation and  then to prepare the submission for Charter Standard. Congratulations to all those involved, but particularly to our Club Secratary Sarah Street and Chairman Philip Marshall.

For more information about the FA's Charter Standard look on the FA web site.
