We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded Charter Standard status by the Manchester FA.
The FA Charter Standard Programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme and is open to all grassroots clubs. It aims to raise standards in football through supporting the development of clubs and leagues. It also recognises and rewards commitment, quality and achievement.
The award demonstrates that we are a well-run and sustainable football club that is proud to prioritise qualified coaching and safeguarding as well as the values of the FA’s Respect Programme as part of our underpinning ethos.
Alongside our elite men’s team and newly formed elite women’s team, we now have over 150 women playing recreational and walking football with our community teams, and all have been involved in our Charter Standard application. We are proud to be one of the best clubs for people to play and enjoy football in Bury.
We would like to thank all of our coaching staff and volunteers who have helped us achieve this in our inaugural season.
