When playing football, I will:


* Always play to the best of my ability and for the benefit of my team

* Play fairly – I won’t cheat, dive, complain or waste time

* Respect my team-mates, the other team, the referee or my coach/manager.

* Play by the rules, as directed by the referee

* Be gracious in victory and defeat – I will shake  hands with the other team and referee before  or at the end of the game

* Listen and respond to what my coach/team manager tells me

* Understand that a coach has to do what is best for the team and not one individual player 

* Talk to someone I trust or the club welfare officer if I’m unhappy about anything at my club.

I understand that if I do not follow the Code, any/all of the following actions may be taken by my club, County  FA or The FA:


I may:

* Be required to apologise to my team-mates, the other team, referee or team manager


* Receive a formal warning from the coach or the club committee


* Be dropped or substituted 


* Be suspended from training 


* Be required to leave the club


In addition:

* My club, may make my parent or carer aware  of any infringements of the Code of Conduct

* The FA/County FA could impose a fine and suspension against my club
