All posts are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check and managers/coaches must commit to ensuring their FA first aid and safeguarding qualifications are kept up to date.

Youth football is a major part of Maidstone United and it was players from a club youth team that made up the first team squad when the club reformed in the early 1990s.
During those wilderness years away the county town, it was our youth sides, playing on local park and school pitches, that kept the flag flying for Maidstone United in Maidstone.
Over the years, several players have gone on to have successful professional or semi-professional careers. We are immensely proud that Manchester United and England defender Chris Smalling played for our youth, reserves and first team before moving into the professional game with Fulham.
Stones youth also brought us Alex Flisher and Tom Mills – two of the most popular players to have ever donned our black and amber strip. A recent success from the youth set-up is Max Sutton. The 17-year-old has signed for the first team, having played for the club since under-8s.
