Crewe FC achieve FA Charter Standard Community Club Status. Launched in 2001, The FA Charter Standard Programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme for grassroots clubs and leagues. Its goal is to raise standards in grassroots football, support the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding them for their commitment and achievements. The FA Charter Standard accreditations are awarded to clubs and leagues rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.

Steve Parker, Chairman at Crewe FC, has overseen the Clubs Charter Standard progression from ‘Entry Level’ to ‘Community’ and is delighted that this has now been achieved. “To be recognised as a Charter Standard Community Club is a fantastic accomplishment and a testament to everyone’s hard work and the value that Crewe FC places on youth development. We have been, and will continue to be, fully committed to delivering a Football Club and progression pathway that goes above and beyond the expectations of the local community. We place great emphasis on creating a safe and enjoyable environment that allows all players the opportunity to develop and to succeed, regardless of their ability. We now have a Club with over 20 football team, from U7 to Open Age, well over 400 members & over 30 FA Qualified Coaches. We are confident that we have developed an aspirational culture that encourages players to push themselves to be the best that they can be and ultimately encourage them to stay in sport and exercise for as long as possible. We have high expectations for our continued growth and development which are fully supported by the local Council and local community & we are confident of bringing these to fruition over the next few years. In my view, this Club is setting the standard for community football that others should aspire to. The recognition by the Football Association in approving us as a ‘Community Club’ is fantastic evidence of that”.
