Our Ethos

The representative teams of Orpington & Bromley PSFA receive no external funding and rely entirely on the support of parents and friends at out various fundraising events such as the Shoot Out, Curry Night and Race Night to fund our trial system, indoor coaching, minor kit replacement and Jersey Tour extras.

Donations, fundraising ideas, offers of sponsorship are always welcome.

Selection Statement

The selection of a squad is the responsibility of the District management teams who may call on other officials to assist if required. The selection criteria for a squad or for any particular match is based on the management teams judgement and perception of a player’s potential abilities, attitude including conduct, fitness levels, decision making, commitment and the need for team balance. Players can expect fair time in representative fixtures when available for selection; this applies over the season not to one match.
