The club is encouraging all parents to download the new FA Match Day App. As well as being able to let your coach know player availability for forthcoming matches, the app will allow your coach to select a team, manage substitutions, up date you whilst the gam is in progress of goals and much more.
It’s time to boot out all the boring admin around organising your football. The FA’s official Matchday app has been developed specifically to automate everything around your football life – whether you’re a player, parent, club secretary, manager or coach.
Make yourself available and know immediately you’re picked;
View all future fixtures;
Stay across all past stats;
Keep an eye on the tables, fixtures, results and scorers;
Pay match fees (if applicable) in app;
Pay club (season) fees in app.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION WHEN REGISTERING
The main point to remember is if you are already registered to a club, DO NOT create a new account (FAN). Every player and parent has a FAN, you need this to register and start using the App.
Every player will also have a parental email address associated to the player. The App needs to be able to link the player and parental email address.
The main reason you will not be able to get into the app is that we don’t have a valid email address for you in one of the systems which powers Matchday (this system is called Whole Game System)
You can get into the app in one of two ways:
1) Get in touch with your club (usually your club secretary) and ask them to add your email address to Whole Game System
2) Get your manager to invite you to the app! We want to make sure that you are who you say you are so this is what happens in the background.
When you get an invite link from your manager, you enter details into the app which we then use to check in Whole Game System. You will enter your name, date of birth and address. If these details match what is in Whole Game System your manager will be able to add you to the app and we’ll add your email address to Whole Game System. Once you open the app, you’ll then just need to reset your password using the ‘I DON’T KNOW MY DETAILS’ button.
