Charter Standard requirement to be a member club of the YEL

It is Rule 1 in our YEL Regulations that all YEL member clubs have achieved Charter Standard Club status – currently being replaced by the brand new England Football Accredited Club. We are working through the status of each of our YEL member clubs with our County FA colleagues, to update our records. Can I please remind everyone that all clubs should have achieved CSC/EFAC status by the time they join the league or within 12 months if they are a newly formed club. We will be tightening up on these rules during this season to ensure that all of our member clubs area appropriately accredited for the start of the 2022/23 season. We will be contacting any clubs who aren’t accredited to make sure they get in touch with their local County FA to get the process up and running and completed ASAP.




Player registration is OPEN from Monday July 5th

A little later than usual due to some leagues extending through until the end of June – However, player registrations will open from Monday July 5th. Please ensure you get your players updated/registered on the system ASAP, Please don’t leave it until the last minute as the system has a nasty habit of becoming overloaded. There are over 200,000 players that need to be in the system by the start of the season so the sooner you get started, the quicker you will be and beat the rush! If you are a new secretary or need a refresher on what you are doing, The FA have produced the following overview of the system.

If you need further assistance, please contact your local County FA directly who will be pleased to help. Don’t forget, this year, every child will need a parent account linked to theirs to allow the registration to complete.
