Approaches and Contacts
Important Message to our Parents and Guardians
Over the years we have seen very disappointed parents and children experience shattering hopes due to external scouts NOT going through the right scouting procedures. According to The FA rules, to which they are bound, scouts should formally identify themselves to your Coach / Official at the start of a game or training session.
We suggest you do not contact any other FA affiliated football clubs throughout your registration period. Likewise any other clubs, academies, scouts, and agents must abide by the FA ruling that they should not make an approach directly to you or any person connected to you. They should contact JEFC Chairman directly.
If you are approached by an unidentified or formally identified scout – inform your Head Coach immediately who will follow the Rules & Guidelines set out by the FA to protect and safeguard the emotional welfare of our Players and ensure protocols are adhered to via both Club Officials.
JEFC will endeavour to develop you as a player and aim to gain exceptional players higher-level experience, therefore, any matters of this like should be directed through JEFC so the ‘regulated process’ can be monitored and applied.
Player Pathway and Development
Our approach and commitment to all our registered players is to:
(a) Provide every Player with a professional experience during their journey and time at JEFC;
(b) Provide / create a safe enjoyable environment that will allow all players to develop / excel;
(c) Support and develop players not just as footballers but as young people;
(d) Provide a pathway for all registered players;
(e) Placing players according to age groups is usually because it helps for administrative reasons; however, it sometimes is restrictive on player development, especially if a player has been identified as being more physically, technically and tactically advanced. From time to time JEFC Coaches will request for those player(s) to ‘play up’ in an older team group to either train or play in a match. This is normal practice.

Our advertising packages can be tailored to suit any company’s needs – from newsletters and flags to Match-Day / Away kit sponsorships with over 100 players training and playing week in and out.
