Over the past two or three years our club has grown tremendously, and with that has come a huge increase in administration. It is now too much for one volunteer to manage alone.
We need to split the Club Secretary position into several administration roles and consequently we need people to help fill them. If you have any of the skills required for any of the roles below, or know someone who does, and are able to help, then please get in touch and I will provide more information.
Ray Barclay, Chair
The secretary is the person who oversees and carries out the football administration duties of their football club. It is a vital role in ensuring our club is able to play official league matches with registered players. It is a role that would require a great deal of commitment and take up plenty of your personal time for certain periods of the season if done by a single person. To reduce this work, the tasks will be split into roles that are managed by others but overseen by the Secretary.
Player Registration Secretary
A club player registration officer handles incoming communications with new players, assign players to appropriate teams, register them with the FA and, if applicable, the relevant league after validating the credentials of the player.
A club fixtures secretary is responsible for organising pitches for home games, liaising with opposition and officials and ensuring that the club’s teams can play all their games.
- Collecting fixtures from League
- Transposing fixtures onto schedules for the teams and referees
- Weekly co-ordinating and appointing referees for each home team fixture
- Weekly co-ordinating and booking pitches for each home team fixture and ensuring the pitches are maintained.
- Deals with League and Berks and Bucks FA fines and payment of fines
- Implementation of club rules
Recreational Football Secretary
Not everyone can or wants to play matches. The Recreational Secretary oversees the running of non-league football sessions such as our Football Fun Club, Vets, Wildcats, etc other than our Bobicats disability football sessions that is currently managed separately
The social secretary is responsible for organising social events to bring all club members together to enhance relationships within the club, this can involve Christmas parties, end-of-season award ceremonies and football trips, liaising with schools and handling the media.
