Horsford Youth Football Club won the FA Charter Standard Club of the Year County FA Award 2014 at the Norfolk FA Gala Awards.


Members of Horsford Youth Football Club have been celebrating after winning the FA Charter Standard Club of the Year County FA Award.

Representatives of the village club, based just north of Norwich, were presented the award at the Norfolk FA Gala Awards Evening at Carrow Road by former Chelsea and England defender Graeme Le Saux.

Horsford YFC currently operate 14 teams for over 150 players between the ages of six and 16, through the hard work of a 30-strong team of volunteers.

The FA Charter Standard programme recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in club and league football. The kitemark is awarded to clubs and leagues that are well run and sustainable, and which make child protection, quality coaching and safety of paramount importance.

Horsford YFC have met the strict criteria for the past seven years and had two previous chairmen of the club, Scott Ablett and Pete Laws, present at the award.

Also attending were current chairman Steve Vincent, treasurer Craig Farr and general secretary Alex Pond, who said: “This is a fantastic achievement for such a wonderful club who provide a welcoming and supportive atmosphere where children of all ages can get involved in the beautiful game in a safe environment.

“This award goes out to everyone involved with the club past and present and we are all be extremely proud of what has been achieved here. As a club we have the drive and ambition to continue to build our club forwards and to go the extra mile.”
