Chance to have your say on future of football in Suffolk

THERE is less than one month left for players, coaches, and the football workforce throughout Suffolk to have their say on the future of the grassroots game locally by taking part in an online survey.

The deadline for the Respect and Perception survey is Sunday, September 30 and Suffolk FA is calling on everyone involved in grassroots football to ensure they air their views before the deadline.

Suffolk FA is targeting grassroots participants to tell us how we are doing to ensure that we continue to provide an excellent service to our stakeholders as we continually strive to improve everybody’s experience of the game.

Jonathan Moyes, Suffolk FA marketing services officer, said: “Our football workforce has shaped The FA’s National Game Strategy which resulted in a further four year investment worth �220m across the country from The FA.

“Last year, many of our stakeholders thought we were doing a good job of promoting and developing the grassroots game in the county. Once again, we’re looking for the voice of local football people to tell us how we’re doing.

“As we enter a new four-year strategy cycle, we want to build upon the successes of halting the decline in 11-a-side football, participation in many areas is up, the number of referees and coaches has increased and the Respect programme has helped us turn the corner in making the game a more enjoyable environment.

“However, we are not resting on our laurels and it is crucial that stakeholders continue to tell us how we are doing to ensure that we as Suffolk goes from strength to strength with quality football opportunities for all.”
