League Statement on Discrimination

The Lancashire and Cheshire Amateur Football League is an all inclusive league where all participants are welcome. The league supports the FA in it’s application of Regulations, particularly to discipline. The league will do all it can to assist the FA to minimise bad behaviour, one type of which is discrimination.

The league has it’s own policy on discrimination, which it wrote on it’s own initiative, and that has been re-issued again this season. The league has requested that all clubs pass on the information to all participants. Discriminatory behaviour has no place in football, nor in wider society.

The Lancashire and Cheshire AFL was a founder member of the FA’s Respect project, helping to shape the programme 14 years ago and is still a leading light in promoting Respect.
