Norway comes to Berkhamsted
The Norwegian FA comes to Berkhamsted to find out how we run Raiders.
On August Bank Holiday Monday, Raiders hosted a delegation of 11 representatives from the Norwegian FA at the Paul Beard Centre. The visit was arranged by the FA who wanted the Norwegian FA to gain insight into how a successful community football runs in the UK.
The visitors met with Keith Pollard, Raiders Club Chairman and Steve Bird, Raiders Trustee and Treasurer, who went through the history of Raiders and how we have become one of the most respected community youth football clubs in the country.
If only English grassroots football had the same financial support that similar clubs in Norway receive from public funds!
