So you’ve got the job. You’re the gaffer. 

Whether you’re a budding Mourinho or a reluctant volunteer you’ve got the responsibility of managing the team. 

You might have a detailed five-year strategy or just a few stinky bibs and some flat footballs but hopefully this resource will provide you with a few pointers in the art and science of running a grassroots (amateur Saturday or Sunday) team.

Download, share or print the guide - which features a foreword from FA technical director Dan Ashworth, and advice on tactics, training sessions, team administration and keeping players fit.
