Estover Park Youth FC became a FA Charter Standard Club.
The Charter Standard programme recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in local football and is awarded to clubs that are well run, sustainable and which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount as an essential requirement.
Vice-chairman Teilo Pearce is very proud of the achievement.
He said: “The Youth Section has entered its sixth season and it was of paramount importance that we achieved FA Charter Standard this season.
“With five teams, it has been a long process to get to this stage but it now confirms to current and future players/parents that we are a well run club.
“I would like to thank all the club’s volunteers for their contribution in getting this award.
“We are now looking at achieving the FA Charter Standard Development Club (level 2 of the FA Charter Standard Programme).”
