The Irish FA Foundation is currently staging a series of club and volunteer consultations across Northern Ireland.
Through the consultation evenings the foundation is looking to capture the views of clubs and volunteers to help mould a new club and volunteer strategy.
The first event was held at Burnavon Arts and Cultural Centre in Cookstown. It was attended by a variety of volunteers, including coaches, club secretaries, committee members, chairpersons and players.
Those who attended discussed different ways of how to best support clubs and volunteers.
The other consultation evenings coming up are:
7 November - Newcastle Centre, Newcastle (7.00-8.30)
14 November - Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown (7.00-8.30)
19 November - National Football Stadium at Windsor Park, Belfast (7.00-8.30)
