HFA FA For All

HFA Festive Round Up

Herefordshire FA.
A monthly newsletter covering relevant updates and news from around the County regarding safeguarding and initiatives.


First of all, a big thank you from all of us here at HFA. Without your time and dedication the children would not have the same opportunities to play football in safe environments throughout the county.

The FA’s Annual Play Safe campaign was a huge success nationally and we played our part in that. Ross-on-Wye’s entry into our county competition was recognised nationally and has been displayed, along with others, at various events and presentations.

Play Safe


Moving into next year we have some exciting news to share regarding the re-vamping of our ‘Youth Council’. More information to follow including how to apply.

National Anti-Bullying Week

More recently we encouraged clubs to get involved in ‘wear odd socks’ day for National Anti- Bullying Week, a joint campaign by the ABA and FA. Lads Club Youth kindly shared some of their campaign pictures with us:
