Two of our U8 team coaches have recently continued their professional development.
Craig Taylor and David Robinson are two of our Level 1 coaches and they attended a 3 hour workshop that discussed ways in which to attack and defend set plays.
At Level 1 an FA coach must complete at least 3 hours of Continued Professional Development (CPD) each year to maintain their Licensed Coach status.
Any coach wishing to find additional courses can do so at the West Riding County FA Website...
In the football clubs drive to ensure a safe and enjoyable playing environment for all, the team coaches from all teams recently completed and passed the FA Safeguarding Children training course.
Passing the course is an FA requirement for any coach to maintain their Licensed Coach status and is an Oakworth Juniors FC must have.
The qualification also has to be renewed every 3 years to ensure it remains current.
Congratulations to former Oakworth Junior Tom Lee who made his 200th appearance in goal for Chesterfield last weekend against Wycombe.
Tom was given the honour of captaining the team and kept a clean sheet as Chesterfield won 2-0 to maintain their promotion push from League 2.
Tom has always supported the Club and has returned several times to help out at Presentations and Fund Raising events.
His Chesterfield no1 shirt hangs proudly in our Clubroom.
