Member clubs unanimously support Cambridgeshire FA’s transformational reforms to its Council

Thursday 22nd March 2018, Cambridgeshire FA (CFA) HQ:

On Monday 19th March, Cambridgeshire FA’s members approved reforms at an Emergency General Meeting to transform the membership of the CFA Council (the governing body for football in the county).

Affiliated member clubs voted unanimously to support the recommendations, which will shift elected representation from a system which currently elects district and league representatives to one where all formats and strategic areas of the game in Cambridgeshire are directly represented.

Cambs FA Chief Executive, Chris Pringle, said: ‘We are delighted that our member clubs have approved the Council reform proposals. We can now move forward to reach out to new members to better reflect this county’s football and community needs. We can’t wait to get started!’

The following formats and categories will form the basis for elected Council members:

  • Mini Soccer
  • Youth Male
  • Adult Male
  • Youth Female
  • Adult Female
  • Disability

CFA Vice-Chair, Phil Hill added: ‘We now need to find the format Reps, and ensure that coaches, education, facilities, referees and wider stakeholders such as business & health can be recruited to sit on our Council.’

The search for nominations to fill these roles will begin in April, and the newly constituted Cambs FA Council will take effect from June 2018.

CFA Chair, Roger Pawley, added: ‘We are committed to being a leading organisation in our field and these reforms are vital to help us achieve our aims. We now need to grab the moment and ensure we can attract new people to become a Council Member to represent the part of the game that that they are involved in.’

These reforms are integral to the Cambridgeshire FA’s desire to achieve the Sport England Code of Governance.
