BAFL to manage youth operations
Oct 17, 2023 - 4:15:17 PM

The BYAFA are delighted to confirm at an EGM at Don Valley Stadium, Sheffield the members present voted twenty-five for, none against and with three abstentions to a proposal recommended by the incumbent committee for the BAFL to manage operations for youth contact and non-contact football in Great Britain for the 2008 season and beyond.

The resulting vote will mean we now move into a transition period where the incumbent committee and the BAFL Board of Directors will work to amalgamate both contact and non-contact versions of the sport in Great Britain under the BAFL brand for all age groups.
On the topic of this amalgamation, BYAFA Chairman, Wendy Bamford, commented, “BYAFA recognise that this is a positive step forward in taking Youth Football to the next level, calling on a wide variety of different resources and skill sets that the BAFL have at their disposal. The move can be seen as a significant benchmark towards the BAFA Whole Sports Plan and the BYAFA look forward to a smooth and well ordered transition".

BAFL Chairman, Glen Schild, Added “The BAFL Board are delighted to have such a strong vote of confidence from the BYAFA membership - we look forward with anticipation to working with all the clubs in the future”.
At the closure of the EGM, the BYAFA membership thanked the current committee, Phil Cottier, Alan Wilson, Julia Chatwood, Dave Bamford and Wendy Bamford for their hard work and years of service.
