2016 Football Foundation Health Check

Foundation logo

We have recently participated in a Football Foundation Support Health Check scheme. The review call, which was extremely detailed, covered a number of areas including how the club is run/managed together with our finances, maintenance levels, football development planning (including qualified personnel), facilities, community role and what we contribute towards it.

The information collated was then taken away and assessed and a score of 1 – 5 is awarded using the following scale;

1  = Unsatisfactory Not meeting expectations &­ needs support
2 = Fair Meeting some, but not all expectations &­ needs support in some areas
3 = Good Meets expectations
4 = Very good – Exceeding expectations

5 = Excellent Example of best practice

Having received the report from the review, we are delighted to report that NUFC have scored 4 = Very good – Exceeding expectations!

This is a great result and a reward for how hard we have all of us at the club have worked over a number of years to get us where we currently are. So a big well done to everyone – it’s great to receive independent and valued recognition of our Club for what it has achieved (and will continue to achieve!)
