Why can’t I include player’s personal information in my project?

This policy is designed to remove the possibility (and associated risk) of making a young player identifiable to third parties. If the image of a child were to be accompanied by personal information - e.g. full name, club name and/or position - it could potentially lead to children being located, contacted, bullied and/or ‘groomed’.  

Even if the personal details of a child are kept confidential, details identifying the school or club of that particular child, or their favourite sportsperson or team, can potentially be used to groom the child.
