The Youth Football Association refers to a report that appeared in the media, regarding procedures taken recently against a man in Maltese courts, who was somehow or another involved in football local nursery. The Youth FA wishes to assure the general public, particularly those involved in football, and especially to the parents of children attending a local football nursery. The YFA has already taken the necessary measures on this particular event, and this on request and with the complete co-operation of the football nursery in question.

The Youth FA promises to continue to act this way, with seriousness and integrity. Unfortunately, such problems arise in sport associations, everywhere and periodically, with Malta not any different, but it is essential that they are destroyed at the source, just as in this case,.

The Youth FA, together with the MFA, has a code of ethics, which must be followed by the coaches and anyone who has any contact with children in our football nurseries. This concept is very clearly staed in Regulation No. 34 of the Youth FA statute.

The YFA reaffirms its vigilance for protection from any danger to the children entrusted to it and reiterates its zero tolerance towards any abuse of any nature and kind.
