FA Chairman Greg Clarke visits local Football Clubs Byfleet Village f.c. and Woking Tigers F.C.

Byfleet Village F.C. and Woking Tigers have been recognised for their work in the community and on behalf of the Football Association in driving the great game forward.

Byfleet Village F.C. run by Chairman Paul Robinson has been at the heart of their community for 19 years and have gone from strength to strength, the club now has over 20 teams, and has recently launched its Girls football programme as well as a Mini Kickers programme.

The visit from Greg Clarke on Saturday, 9th March highlights the dedication and hard work that has gone into the club from its committee of volunteers, and parent coaches. The club now has 20 teams in the Surrey Primary League and Surrey Youth League, and have also taken the game to wider audiences through their Girls Football Programme, as well as Mini Kickers training for 3-4 year-olds and U5s & U6s teams.

The club's dedication to getting as many people as possible playing football is what drove the visit and support from The FA. This dedication is highlighted through the recently formed girls’ teams, and their efforts to bring through younger players try the game, and enjoy a new sport.

Club Chariman Paul Robinson commented on the visit, ‘It is a great honour for the club to receive a visit from Greg Clarke and really highlights the hard work that all the volunteers bring to the club, from committee members to parent coaches. We are dedicated to offering a great football experience for all our club players and bringing new players, boys and girls, into the game. The visit from Greg Clarke will be a highlight for the club's season and will lift the spirits of all its players and volunteers as we continue in our mission to grow the club'.
