Thu 28th January 2016 | AFC Darwen | By Ian Templeman
AFC Darwen have been awarded FA Charter Standard status at community level by the Lancashire FA, the highest status that can be awarded to the club.
The FA Charter Standard accreditation is awarded to clubs and leagues which have been strictly judged and deemed to be well-run and sustainable, and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the FA Respect programme.
Club spokesman Kay Byrne said: “Being granted FA Charter status means the club has been recognised and rewarded for the standard achieved within grassroots football and for the support given to the development of the club.
“It is a great achievement for the club, and we would like to thank everyone who has been involved with the application for their help and support, especially the former club Chairman Wayne Wild”.
