Great Bentley Youth Football Club
FA Charter Standard Development Club

Great Bentley Youth FC has always made the commitment to continue to look to improve on the high standards we operate and conduct both on and
off the field. From day one we set the club up to enable continued growth and improvement, following the guidelines stipulated by The Football
Association. In January 2006, 4 months after the club was formed, we were awarded the the FA Charter Standard. This was a key aim of all involved
in the setting up of the club as we all felt this was important as this would form the basis of how the club is to be run.

However we did not want to stop there. In 2009 the committee set a target of achieving the next level of accreditation, The FA Charter Standard
Development Club. This involved investing in coaches’ ability to attain FA Level 2 accreditation, expand the committee to include key roles such as
Child Welfare Officer, build on our relationships with local schoolsl. This was then documented in our development plan that we have continued to
evolve for day one.

The result of this is that on January 29th 2010, Essex FA notified us that we had met the criteria and achieve accreditation, 1 of only 17
clubs in Essex ( see Essex FA website ) .

Congratulations and thanks must go out to all involved especially Scott Young who took the lead on this and also to Ian Bent, Essex County FA Club
Development Officer for his help and support. For further details regarding the FA Charter Standard please click here

However it doesn't end there, we shall continue to review, modify and enhance the way we operate and strive to improve where possible throughout
the club.
