The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club (MBVFC ) has become the sixth Football Far North Coast (FFNC) club to achieveNational Club Accreditation.

The Football Federation Australia (FFA) program that was first established in 2012 is aimed at providing member clubs with a framework to enhance club activity.

Grassroots football represents close to 90% of football participation in Australia and sound organisational structure is recognised as being fundamental to driving participation opportunities and experience.

An initial four tiers of accreditation are designed to exist, with MBVFC joining Bangalow SC, Dunoon United FC, Eureka FC, Nimbin Headers FC and Level TWO accredited club Alstonville FC, as member clubs in the zone to have embraced the process.

FFNC general manager Steve Mackney said that he would like see all 26 member clubs in the zone achieve at least Level One accreditation and invites interest from clubs to do so.

‘Northern NSW Football has two club development officers, in Gary Fisher and Ross Hicks, who will willingly help member clubs through the straight forward process to achieve accreditation’, said  Mackney.

‘Congratulations to Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC for the enthusiastic manner in which they have progressed football in their area and for achieving Level ONE club accreditation’

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
