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 for spectators at all times

  • Remember what children play for
  • Applaud effort and good play
  • Respect the referee’s decisions even when you don’t agree with them
  • Appreciate good play from whatever team it comes from
  • Remain behind the touchline and within the Designated Spectators’ Area (where provided)
  • Let the coaches do their job and not confuse the players by telling them what to do
  • Encourage the players to respect the opposition, referee and match officials
  • Support when players make a mistake offer them encouragement not criticism
  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting, or abusive language or behaviour

Parents and carers should ensure that:

  • The child wears the correct clothing for football training and matches (in all weather conditions)
  • The child wears the correct football boots and
  • The child brings water to drink (for rehydration)
  • If the child wears glasses during play, the glasses contain safety lenses and are fastened to the head by a strap
  • The child is on time for training and matches
