What is Fairplay?

We will do our very best to give you the most competitive fixtures we can. By that we mean we will pair you with teams of similar ability where both teams will need to play at their very best in order to win. Sometimes we get this wrong or other circumstances mean that one team may not be performing at its best.

Fairplay is about recognising that the teams are not fairly matched and instead of pressing on regardless until the final whistle with a game that is not benefiting the development of either team, both team’s coaching staff look at ways to change the game so that both teams continue to benefit from the experience.

It does not mean that one team should add players or the other should take players off in the hope that this will even up the teams. It requires creative thinking by both sets of coaches working together to come up with training ground routines that can be inserted into the game to add new challenges so that both teams can develop their skills at the appropriate level.

What is WHOLE GAME?

From team managers and club secretaries through to players and parents, Whole Game is for the whole of grassroots football. Whatever your role in the game and whatever you do, Whole Game can help you to do it faster and more effectively.

You’ll find club data – such as player contacts, qualifications, discipline records and so much more all in one place, which is great news for managers and club secretaries when it comes to club admin and monitoring player availability.

You only have to input a player’s details once – and the system fully integrates with both Full-Time and the Matchday app to make access and management of information simple.
