JR Robins support the Kent FA Youth Council’s, ‘Swearing – Lets Tackle It’ Campaign

Kent FA - Swearing - Lets Tackle ItThe following news story is taken from the Kent FA website:-

Over a year since the Kent FA’s ground breaking Youth Council proudly launched its award-winning SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It’ campaign, the organisation’s Youth Ambassadors continue to eradicate foul and abusive language in the game.

Working hard with partner leagues, the SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It message continues to travel around the county.

This weekend, Youth Ambassadors attended the Kent Girls and Ladies League finals to further emphasise the need to make football a positive and fun environment for everyone.

The event, which welcomed hundreds upon hundreds of female footballers of all age groups from across Kent, proved to be a perfect back drop for the Youth Ambassadors to engage clubs, coaches, referees and players.

Youth Ambassador Laurel Collins, who is leading the SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It project, was delighted with the reaction the campaign received.

Collins said, “We’ve been taking SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It all over the county to several league finals from the adult’s game to Kent’s girls and ladies league. The purpose of our campaign was to universally challenge the idea that certain language and behaviour is acceptable on the touch lines. The Kent FA Youth Council believes that foul and abusive language can have a huge impact on people; whether the referee, a player or a supporter.”

“Our message is clear in our campaign video, but going out into the Kent football community like we’ve been doing, helps us build relationships, speak to leagues and clubs and explain a little bit more and share best practice.”

“We’ve received some great feedback to the concept with a number of clubs and leagues being really proactive and supporting us. Whether that’s by including the campaign branding on their website, social media or within their ground, to approaching us to be part of their end of season occasions.”

“We’ll be looking to continue to embed this campaign, considering how we can add an educational element to further ensure Kent football remains ahead of the game in tackling this issue.”

Giving Girls football a boost

To promote Girls football in the local area Junior Reds held a football tournament in April at their mini soccer home ground at Danson Youth Centre.

Six Primary Schools took part –  Bedonwell, Dartford Bridge, Northumberland Heath, Pelham, St. Stephens, and Willow Bank – entering a total of nine teams in the School Year 3-4 and 5-6 competitions. London Football Association Coaches were in attendance for a communal “warm up” session and to present trophies.

The eventual winners were Bedonwell School for the Year 5-6 competition and St. Stephens for the Year 3-4 competition. The two teams are pictured below.

Club Chairman, Clive Chivers, said “Junior Reds Football Club do not traditionally organise football tournaments. We did, however, decide to make an exception as we felt Girls football is sadly underrepresented in the local area. Several Schools were invited to attend an exclusive Girls football completion and we were delighted by the positive responses received. A large number of the Club Coaches volunteered to assist and my thanks go to all. Several are pictured before the start of the event.

We currently have just one Under 11 Girls football team. We are keen to provide greater football opportunities at other age groups for next season and in particular to forms Girls teams in the Under 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 age groups, being current School years 3 to 7. If interested contact either Grainne Feeney on 07828 164 557 or myself on 07504 264 157 or email The Girls football group can be found at Bexleyheath Academy on Saturday mornings (starting 10.00am)”



The ballThe Junior Reds Football Club was formed in 2001 to provide boys and girls, between the ages of six and eighteen, with the opportunity to compete in local Sunday Football Leagues in South East  London and  North Kent.
