Volunteers kick off your season


volunteers are the foundation of grassroots football

Without the time, dedication and commitment that volunteers demonstrate each and every week across our county, clubs and leagues would simply not exist.
A club or league is about more than just the players on the pitch. Volunteers really make football happen and help to create the next generation of footballers.
It’s usually the case that a few people at a club do a lot of the work – If you’re in this position it can often feel overwhelming. There are loads of reasons to volunteer too and recruiting new volunteers with the right skills to help out can be a significant help.

Volunteers are always welcome within the football community here in Northumberland.

Safeguarding and Welfare


Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone.

This is particularly true if your role as a volunteer involves working or being with children and young people under the age of 18.
