#Norfolkfootball ForAll


Our Strategy - #NorfolkFootball ForAll

The three year strategy aims to inspire a lifelong journey in football for all as well as increase football participation in Norfolk by 25%

Created in 2015’s ‘Engaging the Next Generation’, our ‘DNA’ core values will continue to run through the heart of the new strategy and a renewed focus on Safeguarding and Inclusion will aim to ensure that Norfolk is a forward thinking County, setting standards for others.

Some of the key strategic objectives of ‘#NorfolkFootball ForAll’ include: a 5000+ increase in player participation; embracing all formats of football such as Walking Football and Disability Football; delivering £5m worth of facility projects; and increasing, retaining, and rewarding the volunteer workforce.

Norfolk FA Chief Executive Officer, Gavin Lemmon lead on the creation of the new strategy along with his Senior Management Team: “We developed ‘#NorfolkFootball ForAll’ with The FA’s ‘For All’ strategy in mind. We want to ensure that anybody in Norfolk who wants to play or be involved in the grassroots game is not only able to, but has a clear and defined pathway to do so.

“We’re proud of what we do at Norfolk FA but we’re always striving to improve. This strategy will challenge us in new and exciting ways, and as a collective we can’t wait to tackle the next three years head-on.”

Chairman of the Association, Michael Banham said: “After weeks of hard work from Gavin and his team, I and the Board of Directors were delighted to approve the new strategy for the next three years. I’m pleased at the way in which the plans outline efforts to confront nationwide challenges such as participation, as well as embedding important issues such as Safeguarding and Inclusion. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback when presenting this strategy to The FA in June, which supports my opinion of us being one of the most forward thinking Counties in the Country.

“I look forward to this next period of progress within Norfolk Football and I am sure that Gavin will oversee his first strategy as CEO with great success."
