Stanmore Jafferys Football Club


We all bear a collective responsibility to set a good example and help provide a positive environment in which children can learn and enjoy the game. Play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Code of Conduct at all times.

On and off the field, I will:

  • Use my position to set a positive example for the people I am responsible for
  • Show respect to others involved in the game including match officials, opposition players, coaches, managers, officials and spectators
  • Adhere to the laws and spirit of the game
  • Promote Fair Play and high standards of behaviour
  • Respect the match official’s decision
  • Never enter the field of play without the referee’s permission
  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour
  • Be aware of the potential impact of bad language on other participants, facility users or neighbours
  • Be gracious in victory and defeat

When working with players, I will:

  • Place the well-being, safety and enjoyment of each player above everything, including winning
  • Never engage in or tolerate any form of bullying
  • Ensure all activities I organise are appropriate for the players’ ability level, age and maturity
  • Co-operate fully with others in football (e.g. officials, doctors, physiotherapists, welfare officers) for each player’s best interests
  • Always be on time for training and matches

I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club, County FA or The FA:

I may be:

  • Required to meet with the club, league or County Welfare Officer
  • Suspended by the club from attending matches
  • Suspended or fined by the County FA
