Dundonald Juniors Recognised for Charter Standard Status

2015 was a milestone year for Raynes Park based, Dundonald Juniors FC as the club were awarded Charter Standard status from The FA, a superb...
The Charter Standard status is The FA's accreditation scheme for grassroots clubs and leagues and its goal is to raise standards in grassroots football, support the development of clubs and leagues, and recognise and reward commitment and achievement. Surrey FA actively encourage all of our clubs and leagues to aim towards attaining the status, as it demonstrates the below:

The Club / League:

• Is well-organised, safe and offers opportunities for all
• Has FA-qualified coaches as standard
• Adheres to FA Respect Policies and Codes of Conduct
• Prioritises Child Welfare
• Maintains appropriate levels of discipline
• Has access to the County FA and FA regional workforces
• Can use the coveted FA ‘Three Lions’ FA crest on its marketing and business materials

Achieving Charter Standard status was a superb achievement for Dundonald Juniors considering that the club only formed in the summer of 2014 and culminates an impressive 18 months for the club since starting out. Within this time Dundonald have gone on to win their division of the Surrey Youth League and been promoted by two divisions. This feat wasn't missed by Fulham FC, a partner club of Surrey FA and supporter of grassroots football within our County, as in November 2015 the Championship side presented Dundonald Juniors with their Charter Standard plaque on the pitch at Craven Cottage.

Jon Burr, Football Development Officer at Surrey FA, commented: "I'm really pleased that Dundonald Juniors have managed to achieve Charter Standard status in such a short space of time and hope that the club can continue to progress and develop over the forthcoming seasons. I would like to extend Surrey FA's thanks to Fulham for recognising their achievement with a pitch presentation."
