Player Registration

All players, including those who are ‘training only’ must be registered with the club for administration and insurance purposes. Please complete a registration form.

The 2023/24 season form is now available

If the player has any medical conditions it is important that you record these on the form and notify the team coaches. If they require any medication, such as asthma inhalers, please ensure these are bought to all training and matches and the team coaches are aware of their location.

All players participating in matches will also need to provide a passport style photograph and a copy of proof of age (passport or birth certificate).

Constitution and Code of Conduct

The Club has a formal constitution and follows the Football Association Code of Conduct for players, coaches, relatives and team officials.


All of our managers and coaches are required to receive training from the Dorset County Football Association in the various aspects of youth football coaching, which includes safeguarding.

Our club policies for safeguarding and equality, as well as our complaints procedure are listed below.

For those training or playing at the Dorchester Town stadium there are rules about appropriate footwear which must be followed. The following poster shows what is acceptable, or not, for anyone (player, coach, assistant) who comes on to the football pitch. Please do not be offended if you are stopped and asked to put the correct boots.

Player Injury Reporting Form

In the unfortunate event of a player getting injured and requiring first aid, please complete the following form and send it to the club Chairman, General Secretary and Welfare Officers.

It is essential that any head injury is treated and managed as setout in the FA Concussion Guidelines.
