Adult teams #KeepItClean for Respect
Planned and supported by the Oxfordshire FA Youth Leadership Team (YLT), the weekend also saw members of the team support Oxfordshire FA staff in their match visits and carrying out interviews. The team and leaders visited two games over the weekend, in both the Witney and District FA and Oxford City FA. Players, coaches and referees were interviewed at both games to get their views on the weekend and how it would improve player behaviour.
James Shiplee, Oxfordshire FA lead for the Respect Weekend said: “It was great to go to a couple of matches over the course of the Respect Weekend and see how much support the initiative had. To see the YLT plan this event shows the impact they can have on football in the county to improve standards and keep more players involved, and aid the transition of players from youth football to the adult game.”
