Following a recent enquiry regarding the videoing of games for the girls' GCSE/ or A levels, the followng advice has been given by Beryl Richardson, the County Safeguarding Manager: "Regarding the recording of Football for GCSE/AL work. Clubs need to follow the usual procedure regarding photographing and videoing football. Permission needs to be given by Parents for U18 participants. The parents need to know where it will be retained, shown and who will view it."
