Articles of the Association
The articles of the Association explain the consitution of the County FA and these can be downloaded from the related documents below or by clicking here. The Articles details the make up of Council and procedures we have to follow.
The Council is made up of 53 members who all represent local football. Each league has at least one representative as long as they have at least 10 member clubs.
The Council is responsible for all football matters and is the ultimate decision making body within the County Association. All minutes and reports of the standing committees have to be sanctioned by the Council.
The Council meet 6 times a year including the AGM in June.
Board of Directors
Subject to Articles 7 and 44, the affairs of the Association shall be governed by the directors who may authorise all such acts and the exercise of all such powers of the Association by the directors, on whom executive management powers are conferred as directors, as may be required to give effect to the objects as described in the provisions of the Memorandum of Association, and which are not by statute or these Articles required to be done or exercised by the Association in general meeting or by the Council.
It is important to note that all financial decisions are made by the Board of Directors. This has been the case since we became incoporated in 1999. The Council are responsible for non financial football decisions.
The work of the Council is carried out through the various standing committees which are listed here. Each committee has responsibility for a specific area of football.
Council members are allocated at least 2 committees to work on for the year and the membership is reviewed annually.
