Austen Arrowheads are the latest in Comet country to be awarded Charter Standard Club status by the Football Association.

This award recognises the way that the club is managed with sound codes of conduct for all areas of responsibility.

This has been achieved through the dedication and hard work from all those involved with the club.

One important step taken by the club has been to put in place measures to ensure child protection with all managers and helpers being subject to Criminal Records Bureau checking.

The club is run totally by volunteers who put in a lot of effort and time to make things run well. The vast majority of coaches within the club are FA qualified.

Their objective is to have all coaches qualified at the highest level under an ongoing plan to develop and improve skills within the club. The benefit of this is evident in the quality of coaching provided.

Arrowheads are one of the oldest clubs in Stevenage, having been established in 1971.

Teams from under-seven through to under-18 play in the Stevenage Mini Soccer League, the Mid Herts League and the Royston Crow League.

Next month, the club will once again offer free coaching to new starters, boys and girls, at ages five to eight.

If you would like your son or daughter to take advantage of this offer, please see the advert for the new sessions which start on March 4 and continue through until the start of next season.

It is a community club run solely for the benefit of children who want to play football.

The club is fully inclusive and do not discriminate against any child.
