Forest Row FC 1st Team Groundshare

The club has agreed a groundsharing agreement with Forest Row FC which will see them play their first-team home matches for 2024/25 at the Vistavis Community Stadium.

Chairman Richard Tramontin said: “Forest Row have been using Oakwood FC since joining the Southern Combination Football League and were looking for a ground nearer to Forest Row and we are pleased to have come to an agreement with them.

“The improvement work to the pitch drainage we have undertaken since the end of the season will help cope with the extra games.

“We look forward to a long and productive mutual relationship with Forest Row FC and look forward to staging their matches next season.”

Under 23s Discontinued

The club has decided not to run an Under-23s team in the 2024/25 season.

We would like to thank joint managers Steven Coveney and Howard Wrate and the players for their hard work and dedication during our only season in the Suburban League Central Division.

We finished fourth and lost the fewest matches but were hampered by the weather and numerous postponements.

FA Play Safe Weekend 2023

Saturday 30th Sept/Sunday 1st October

English football is set to unite again over the above weekend to promote Play Safe – a countrywide campaign to focus attention of the vital importance of safeguarding in our national game.

Led by The Football Association, the Play Safe campaign is endorsed by the NSPCC and will be supported this weekend across every level of English football, including the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship, and across the grassroots game.

This season we are asking EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE – clubs and leagues at every level of the game, (and individuals if they wish) – to tell us what they are planning to do to make a difference over the Play Safe weekend and to share this via an online Play Safe Pledge.

The FA’s Survivor Support and Safeguarding Advisory Group (FASSSAG) continues to support Play Safe: “Creating safe environments in every football setting is a collective responsibility. It’s really important that every single person in football – no matter if they’re actively involved or on the sidelines – understands that they have an ongoing role to play. Knowing how to act on any concerns is vital and Play Safe is a key way to raise awareness so that everyone is vigilant and knows what to do if they become aware of any inappropriate behaviour.”

This year’s Play Safe weekend focuses on the safeguarding role EVERYONE has to play – coach, player, parent/carer, spectator or volunteer – to keep children and young people safe, no matter what the football setting. EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, EVERYTIME is encouraged to WATCH, LISTEN, TALK and ACT if they have any safeguarding concerns.

These messages are reflected in the visuals on this page, which are examples of the various digital and print resources being distributed to every County FA, league and club in England. Captain’s armbands will be worn at various levels of the game over the weekend. Head coaches/managers are also being asked to wear Play Safe pin badges to show their support.

It’s all part of football in England uniting to create an ever-safer culture across the game at every level.
