In 2001 the club was awarded the FA Charter Standard Development Club Status which ensured that at least one coach within the club achieved Level 2 Coaching award and every age group is coached by at least a Level 1 Coach.

 

All coaches have to complete an Emergency First Aid Course and a Child Protection Workshop to ensure the safety of the children. All our coaches have a regular CRB Check by the Football Association.

In 2004 we were awarded both the Durham County and Northern Region FA Charter Standard Club of the Year in recognition of the standards the club were setting and achieving.

 

In 2006, Berni Borsberry received the County Durham Charter Standard Coach of the Year and this was followed in 2007 with Joe Blackett, our Chairman, receiving the Administrator of the Year.

 

Our coaches have been rewarded over the years with many boys moving onto professional football club academies and several going on to play for football league clubs.

 

We have a thriving development section for boys aged 4 – 6 years old, 13 boys teams playing team football from the age of 6 to 16 years old, a girls development programme, and girls team playing at Under 11, Under 12 and Under 14 level .

 

The club was awarded, for the 3rd time, the Teesside Junior Alliance League “Club of the Year” in 2012. This was in recoognition of all the hard work that is put into the club from administration to peformances on the pitch. The league commented that levels of performance achieved across the football club was remarkable for the large size of the football club.

 

The awards continued in 2015 as we were awarded the County and Regional, FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year. The FA recognised that we were at the heart of the community despite being a youth football club.

 

We are the only football club that trains in Newton Aycliffe and plays all their matches in Newton Aycliffe with our excellent facilities at The Oakleaf Sports Complex. Winter training is also in Newton Aycliffe with 3G pitches and indoor facilities across the town.
