The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has issued guidance https://www.rospa.com/leisure-safety/advice/lightning about measures to reduce the risk of being struck by lightning.

Our thoughts go out to Jordan’s family and friends.

Youth Voice Survey

We hope you are keeping safe and well in these strange times. See below from Cheshire County FA re the Youth Voice Survey - a great way to get your daughters opnion heard and to shape the game.

At Cheshire County FA, we are fully committed to supporting young people in our beautiful game and ensuring that we provide regular opportunities throughout the year to provide feedback in an open & honest manner to ensure we can continue to improve & develop strategies & policies to better safeguard everybody and ensure a safe & enjoyable experience. This piece of work forms part of our ‘Youth Voice’ initiative which aims to offer young people in football within Cheshire the opportunity to provide feedback to shape the game for them for the future.  


We would ask all of our Under 18 Players, Coaches and Volunteers to please spend a few minutes completing the below:

You will have the opportunity to submit the feedback to shape decision making going forward. Please also do not hesitate to get in touch with us should you need any support.

If you know of someone who is under 18 and is involved in grassroots football in Cheshire please do pass this onto them.

Thank you for your continued commitment in making football happen and for your valuable feedback.
