Welcome to the Players area of The FA Respect Programme.

Respect is the FA initiative aimed at developing a nationwide collective responsibility amongst everybody involved in football to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place.

The FA’s Respect programme provides tools for players from grassroots to elite football to help ensure a safe and positive environment in which to play the game. The Guernsey FA is committed to reinforcing and promoting this programme at all levels of local football and ‘good practice’ awards will be received by those most deserving in terms of promoting and following the Respect measures. By contrast, the Guernsey FA will endeavour to take the necessary and appropriate action in cases of ‘poor practice’.

To all Football Players:

Remember this friendly advice when playing…

  • Finish the game with a handshake rather than a moan.
  • Win and lose with dignity
  • Save the diving for the springboard.
  • Tell the team whinger to shut it and get on with the game.
  • Offer the Referee a drink at the end of the game rather than your glasses.
