Respect Award for league

Maidstone Boys Primary League gets FA Silver Award for Respect

The FA have awarded the league with the FA Respect Silver Award for their service in promoting the Respect Programme.  

The Awards celebrate those leagues, clubs and individuals at all levels of the game that are supporting The FA’s Respect programme by driving up standards of behaviour on and off the pitch, supporting referees and promoting an awareness of fair play and respect amongst fans and players alike.

Dermot Collins, The FA’s Respect manager, said: “ The winners of these Respect and Fair Play Awards - the clubs and their supporters - deserve recognition for helping to champion all that’s good in the game."

Since its launch three years ago, The FA’s Respect campaign has helped to improve a range of aspects across the game, including the atmosphere in and around youth football, whilst there are now 6,000 more referees than in 2008.

Part of the prize for the Maidstone Boys Primary League was a trip to Wembley to see England play Belgium.

League Secretary Bill Taylor said " It was a fantastic day at Wembley and will live with us as a day to remember in our football archives."

" Every club in the league has played a part in maintaining the focus on the Respect Programme. The management committee wish all teams every success in their endeavours for next season and encourage all to enforce the Respect Codes of Conduct at all times. Next year we go for gold!"
