FA REGULATIONS

Regulations relating to Goalpost Safety

All schools are strongly urged to take heed of The Football Association's guidelines on goalpost safety. 

Metal cup hooks, the metal fittings sometimes used to attach nets to goalposts, have been banned since the start of the 2007-08 season.  Nets must be attached with tape or plastic clips.  Metal hooks cause horrific injuries, with fingers and shins getting lacerated. 

The attention of all schools is drawn to the FA Guidelines on Goalpost Safety

All ISFA schools mustensure that they comply with the Guidelines laid down by the Football Association. 

Funding for replacement goals is available via the Football Foundation and eligibility criteria and further details can be obtained on their web site at www.footballfoundation.org.uk.
