How we run our club

CSA 07 FC is a registered charity and there are currently 4 charity trustees - these trustees set and drive the strategic direction of the football club.

We also operate a Coaches Committee onto which we invite all of our age group managers and coaches. This is the team who are responsibile for the weekly operational arrangements e.g. planning and running training sessions, arranging fixtures, planning pitch allocations and arranging referree's.

CSA 07 FC coaching team for 2020 / 21 season

Each of our age groups have a dedicated manager who takes responsibility for the main administrative tasks that are needed during the season - registration of players, arranging fixtures etc. There will also be a defined person or persons who will take training sessions on a Friday night and there will be a group of individuals who will be in charge of supporting the teams on a match day.

As you will see from the table below, the way this works is different across each age group but this reflects the time available from each of our volunteers and their interests. Some of our volunteers also have to balance their children playing across different age groups at our football club (and sometimes at other clubs!) which adds some further complexity.

However, the club works on the principle that everyone in the community supports each other and we work hard to ensure that we provide football to our players each week.
