Players Code of Conduct

It is important everyone behaves themselves when playing football. 

As a player, you have a big part to play. That’s why The FA is asking every player to follow a Respect Code of Conduct.

When playing football, I will: 

  • Always do my best, even if we’re losing or the other team is stronger.
  • Play fairly – I won’t cheat, complain or waste time.
  • Never be rude to my team-mates, the other team, the referee, spectators or my coach/team manager. 
  • Do what the referee tells me. 
  • Shake hands with the other team and referee at the end of the game. 
  • Listen to my coach/team manager and respect what he/she says. 
  • Talk to someone I trust, for example my parents or the club welfare officer if I’m unhappy about anything at my club. 

I understand that if I do not follow the code, action may be taken.
