Safeguarding children and young people involved in football activities is a key priority of Barton Rovers FC and is taken very seriously at all levels within the Club.
In line with the Football Association guidelines we have introduced policies to place the welfare of children and young people above all else and everyone involved in the Club should take time out to read and understand these policies.
Club Welfare Officer
Everyone in contact with the Club is encouraged to report any concerns to the Club Welfare Officer to pursue as necessary and appropriate.
Barton Rovers Football Club is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our members so they can participate in football in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our club. If bullying does occur, all club members or parents should be able to tell and know the incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING club. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the Club Welfare Officer or any committee member. Read More
Barton Rovers Boys Football Club was formed in 1982 by Tony Cook, John Quinn and John Summerfield who lived in Tilehurst, Reading (United Kingdom) with sons who wished to play football.Due to the lack of local opportunity, a team was formed and named Barton Rovers, as two of the three parents lived in Barton Road. An original and current aim is to provide local football to youths who may not otherwise have the opportunity.
