News from the sidelines at Moneyslane Football Club

Moneyslane FC Juniors were recently awarded the prestigious McDonalds Club Accreditation.

Club Accreditation is a quality accreditation scheme and is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that as an accredited club we operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted operating standards.

A club spokesperson said: “As the local family football club at Moneyslane FC, we’re committed to ensuring the development of your club and constantly working towards good practice policies and procedures.

“We have ensured a clear and structured approach to improving and developing Moneyslane FC, providing us with coach bursaries, coach mentoring and club development while providing us with free footballs, cones and junior bibs.

“Most importantly it demonstrates to our partners, parents & young people that your club is child-friendly and safe and our benchmark is club quality.

“Big thanks to all our hard working junior staff and to you as parents for faithfully bringing your children along each week.
