CLUB AND LEAGUE ROLES
Running a football club is a large project which requires time and effort.
This means there are a number of roles which need filling in order to maintain the workload successfully.
The role of a chairperson is to oversee the running of the club/league and ensure that it is run efficiently and managed appropriately. They will lead club/league meetings and provide leadership in all areas such as club tournaments, etc.
The treasurers role will be to ensure that the club stays financially sustainable, pay all expenses, and collect any monies owed to the club.
The Secretary is one of the most important roles in a club or league. The main point of contact for Amateur FA, team managers and clubs/leagues, the Secretary will look after the administrative duties for the club/league.
The fixtures secretary will be in charge of organising pitches for home games, and ensuring that the club’s teams can play all of their games.
Manager or coach
All teams will require a manager to organise the team for fixtures, lead the team on matchdays, and organise training. In a lot of cases this will also include coaching the team as well to develop their ability.
The club welfare officer ensures that the club operates a safe, child friendly environment and promotes good practice in line with the club’s Child Protection Policy.
