Coach with a pitch pad


What's next when you hang up your boots?

If you're interested in continuing in the world of football after playing, there are plenty of opportunities to stay involved, whether it is refereeing, coaching or administration.


Guernsey FA are keen to recruit new referees who have 'played the game' and without your weekend 'fix' of playing football, staying involved through refereeing could be the way forward for you.


Give something back to your team or club whether its the adult or junior section by becoming a coach. Support the next generation of footballers by attending an FA coaching course utilising all your playing experience.


Support the infrastructure of your team, club or league by helping behind the scenes. Whether it is working with the committee or developing the media side of things, the grassroots game is crying out for more volunteers to support football in the County.
