Club Statement

The Greenbank Committee wishes to take this opportunity to reinforce our stance that, as a club, we have a zero-tolerance attitude to any players, spectators or coaches that are seen to be in breach of FA Respect Guidelines. The Committee has been made aware of a few issues over recent weeks, which are not befitting of a club that is both FA Charter Standard and the reigning Club Of The Year, and are dealing with these issues immediately. We would like to remind all that breaching FA Respect Guidelines can result in the individual, team or even club being removed from the league. 

We pride ourselves on being a family club, that offers football for all and take any issues relating to child welfare extremely seriously. As a club, we will not hesitate to remove an individual from our club, if they are found to be endangering player welfare, with full support of the league and FA. Should you have any concerns about the welfare of any minor, no matter how big or small, please highlight this immediately to our dedicated and trained welfare officers. They can be contacted on welfare@greenbankfc.co.uk

We have also had to approach numerous visitors to NK Sports Centre breaching the strict rules implied by NK Sports Centre. For clarity:

  • The NK Sports Centre site is strictly no smoking, this extends to electronic vaping.
  • No dogs are permitted on the field
  • All spectators must remain behind the respect lines. For those playing on the 3G, please remain on the footpath behind the railed fence
  • No alcohol is permitted

Please share these with fellow parents, players and visiting teams.

We appreciate your cooperation with these matters and trust that you respect the importance behind this statement. We wish to place on record our thanks to the majority of those connected with Greenbank JFC for their impeccable behaviour whilst travelling around the county and reassure such people that the minority, who wish to try and tarnish our image, shall be dealt with accordingly.
