Club Defibrilator

External De Fibrilator

A new external Defribrillator has now been installed at the Community Centre. The original defibrillator which was purchased back in 2014, with the help of other clubs at the centre has now been replaced with the more accessible external one. Thanks to a grant from Calderdale Council and help from Marilyn Greenwood, local councillor. To use the life saving defibrillator:

Dial 999 and give the postcode (located on the front of the box) and they will provide the key code for the box.

Please make sure you understand where it is and review the instructions on use (it does talk you through what to do anyway)

Safeguarding - Play Your Part

Please read the following statement from Greg Clarke, FA chairman.


I am writing to ask for your help today in sharing some important information about safeguarding children.

As a Welfare Officer you are in a unique position to use your networks help the game spread vital messaging about keeping children safe. We are confident in the breadth of work being undertaken in this field across the country but are never complacent.

To that end, please take 60 seconds to watch a new film featuring players from our national teams and then share the link as widely as possible:


The FA is proud of its extensive network of welfare officers across the country and the work that you do. Please remember you are not alone but part of that wider network. Your club committee should be working with you to ensure safeguards are in place and your CFAWO is always there to support you if you have any questions.

Please continue to make use of your CWO Safeguarding Checklist to guide you as you ensure safeguards are effective within your club. If you have not received a copy please contact your CFA Welfare Officer.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and you are key in ensuring your club understands exactly what that means. On the above link you can also find The FA’s Reporting Film and ‘Guide to reporting concerns about child welfare’ to help to ensure everyone in your club is clear about how to report a concern.

Please continue to monitor compliance with CRC checks and make regular use of your County FAs Members’ Services Safeguarding area and/or your club’s Whole Game System portal pages to assist you. Contact your CFA Welfare officer if you are unsure as to how to access these areas.

The FA’s new, free Safeguarding Children Recertification Online is now available for anyone who’s last safeguarding children qualification is over two years old. We’d like to encourage you to take this yourself if your qualification expires in the next twelve months. Please also encourage others in your club whose qualification is expired or expires in the next twelve months to take the course. This will help raise safeguarding awareness throughout your club.

Thank you

Greg Clarke
The FA

New 3G Pitch at Brooksbank School

The Elland area has been highlighted by Calderdale Council, the Football Foundation and the Football Association as an area that needs an artificial grass pitch facility. This will have great benefits for the locality and will mean that people from our area will not have to travel far and wide to play sport on such a surface

3G Pitch at Brooksbank

If you have any questions or concerns about this initiative there is a public consultation meeting at 17:00 on Monday 15th October 2018 in the Main Hall at Brooksbank school

We have been asked to attend as a proposed partner club. If you have time please come along and support us.
