Play Safe Weekend - Saturday 30 September-Sunday 1 October

As you have already seen by our social media posts (click here), this weekend it is Play Safe Weekend. AFC Leyton have taken a pledge along with many other clubs to show that we take player safety and enjoyment very seriously.

This year’s Play Safe campaign focuses on the safeguarding role that everyone can play – coaches, players, parents/carers, spectators or volunteers – to keep children and young people safe, no matter what the football setting.

In addition, as part of this year’s Play Safe campaign, we are also promoting The FAs free online Safeguarding Awareness Course for Parents & Carers (click here) to raise awareness around safeguarding and how to report any concerns. Their aim is for 100,000 people from across the game to have taken the course, which only takes 30 minutes to complete, by the end of 2024. The free course provides important information that guides parents and carers through questions they should ask to ensure the club or venue where children play football has the correct safeguarding policies, people and practices in place.

We are really proud of the care we give our players. We listen. We are open and approachable. We make adjustments where needed.

This week, we will be asking players across the club to tell us what makes them feel safe at AFC Leyton and football outside of the club. Players can write down their thoughts on the speech bubbles available and we will publish them for parents, coaches and volunteers to read.

Remember – safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

Atkins Physiotherapy

We are pleased to have our relationship with local physiotherapy – Atkins Physiotherapy Consultants Ltd. Atkins have been helping the public for over 32 years and are based in South Woodford on the high road (opposite Tesco Express).

This newly formed relationship is hopefully the start of a long-standing one which gives all players signed for AFC Leyton a 15% discount on physiotherapy. I hope we rarely have to use their services but with injuries a common occurrence in football I’m pleased to have a trusted, local and experienced physiotherapy team to help and support. If needed, please get in touch with them and quote “Harry” or “AFC Leyton” for a high quality service, friendly approach and a discounted rate.
