Players, coaches and the football workforce throughout the county of Derbyshire can now have their say on the future of the grassroots game by taking part in an online survey.

Derbyshire County FA chief executive Dawn Heron said: “Our football workforce has shaped The FA’s National Game Strategy, which resulted in a further four year investment worth £220 million across the country.”

Heron wants to halt the decline in 11-a-side football, which is being seen nationally.

She added: “Participation in many areas is up, the numbers of referees and coaches has increased and the Respect programme has helped us turn the corner in making the game a more enjoyable environment.

“However, we are not resting on our laurels and it is crucial that stakeholders continue to tell us how we are doing, to ensure that we as Derbyshire County FA go from strength to strength with quality football opportunities for all.”

The survey can be accessed by visiting and in addition, those who complete the five-minute survey have the chance to win tickets to an upcoming England match at Wembley.
