Clyde Achieve SFA Bronze Award

Wed, 25th Oct 2017 6:39pm

The club was delighted to receive confirmation yesterday that it had secured the Bronze Award from the SFA Club Licensing Scheme for 2017.

The Club Licensing system encompasses a National and European regulatory system. Licensing sets out the standards and procedures by which clubs will be assessed as a basis for continuous improvement across many aspects of football. It is a modern form of regulation.

National Club Licensing applies to Scottish FA member clubs and UEFA Club Licensing applies to Scottish Professional Football League Premiership clubs. National Club Licensing operates a Gold, Silver, Bronze and Entry level system. Clubs are granted an overall award reflecting the lowest level that the club achieves in the four sections of criteria; Ground, First Team Football, Youth Team Football and Legal, Admin, Finance and Codes of Practice.

John Taylor, who is responsible for the the club's SFA Licensing compliance said:-

"We are delighted to have retained our Bronze status for 2017. The SFA set high - and ever increasing - standards which stretch clubs like ourselves in the areas in which we are audited.

"However, we use the criteria positively to define the type of club we aspire to be and we are grateful to the SFA for their supportive and constructive approach to these audits. We'd also like to recognise the excellent support we receive from Emma Walker and her team at NLL, whose input is essential in helping the club retain its Bronze status."
