The League's reputation as one of the most progressive was further highlighted by it becoming the first male adult Sunday League in the County FA area to sign up to the FA's Respect campaign and it was the first Adult Sunday League in the County FA area to be awarded one of The FA's Respect Awards and it has been commended twice more by The FA since then. Good standards of behaviour by all participants are the cornerstone of the League’s approach, together with good quality facilities.
