Bob Carr, Marsh Harriers' chairman and Charter Standard coach said: “We are extremely proud to have achieved Charter Standard Award status. We feel it shows that we run the club to

a high standard, with all procedures and policies in place to safeguard the children.

“We couldn't have achieved the Charter Standard Award without the full support of other club members, so thanks to all involved.”

Craig Terrington, Norfolk County FA's football development officer, who supported Marsh Harriers with their application added: “Marsh Harriers have put in a lot of hard work to achieve the award and I hope they continue to grow, maintaining the high standards already set.”

The team came runners-up in the U11 Division Three.
