AHF FC secures FA Charter Status for 2014-2015

Press Release: May 20, 2015

AHF FC has been awarded FA Charter Status for another year.

The community football club was given the FA Charter Standard Club Award after completing its annual health check, being judged to be sustainable and well-run, implementing the FA Respect Policies and Codes of Conduct, and prioritising quality coaching and child protection.

This achievement means AHF FC can use the FA's Three Lions crest on its business and marketing materials and that it has been shown to achieve high standards in all its operations.

Noormohamed Vali, Club Chairman, AHF FC, said:

"AHF FC has continued to grow over the past year, and with over 300 children and with an increasing portfolio of football and sports coaching, we believe the next 12 months will be our biggest yet.

"On behalf of everyone at AHF FC, I would like to thank 24|7 Home Rescue for their support and commitment to our community club, which has allowed us to help more kids from our community and beyond."

Hassan Khonat, Operations Director at AHF FC sponsors 24|7 Home Rescue, said:

"This news recognises the great work carried out by the volunteers and parents who run this community football team.

"We are absolutely delighted that the tenacious and talented volunteers at AHF FC have secured FA Charter Status for another year. This achievement reflects the high quality of the coaching, training and support provided to everyone who attends the club.

"AHF FC's standards show what all similar clubs should aspire to, and we hope that parents, coaches, managers, players and everyone else involved in the club are as delighted about this award as we are."
