The North East Regional Women's Football League (NERWFL) has been awarded Charter Standard Status by the FA.
The NERWFL provides competitive Leagues at Steps 4 and 5 of the FA Women's pyramid and includes teams in the area from Sheffield United in the south to Whitley Bay in the north, Hull City in the east and Huddersfield in the West. The area covers the County FAs of East, North and West Riding, Sheffield and Hallamshire, Durham and Northumberland and was formed in 2005 from the amalgamated Northern and Yorkshire and Humberside Leagues.
The FA Charter Standard assesses the ability of leagues to provide a high quality, safe and enjoyable football experience against a standard set of criteria. The League has to satisfy standards of procedure and adherence to policy as well as implementing best practice in relation to running the game. The NERWFL has also demonstrated its commitment to continuous improvement by submitting a three-year development plan that will ensure that the League provides the best possible service to member clubs and the game in general.
The award was presented to Steve Ord, the Chairman of the NERWFL on Saturday 26 February by Emily Toase, Senior Football Development Officer at North Riding County FA at a mid-season meeting of all clubs.
Emily said: "I am delighted to present this award to the NERWFL. It comes after a lot of hard work by the Committee in conjunction with the County FA's and demonstrates the standards that the League has achieved as well as it's willingness to improve. The League provides an excellent level of competition across a vast area of Northern England and plays a vital part in the development of the women's game."
Steve Ord, the League Chairman responded: "We are proud to have our efforts recognised in this way. We are a dynamic, progressive League and will always try to provide an excellent League structure for our member clubs."
