HBW United FC received some fantastic news last month when the club was awarded the Football Association’s Charter Standard. The accreditation is a sign that HBW is one of the best run grassroot clubs in the country.

Launched in 2001, The FA Charter Standard Programme supported by McDonald’s, aims to raise standards in grassroots football, support the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding them for their commitment and achievements.

The accreditation is only awarded to clubs that are judged to be well-run and sustainable, and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.

Everyone in the club has worked incredibly hard to achieve their coaching badges, first aid qualifications and child safeguarding certificates enabling HBW to apply for accreditation.

As a result, the club will receive £100 of official FA Nike match balls, access to the McDonald’s FA Charter Standard Kit Scheme to receive one free Nike team kit each season and an official FA plaque and certificate.
