decisions for the Club’s, and all those person involved at all levels within the club, benefit, which are unimpaired by influence from elsewhere.
Whilst we all want to progress and to achieve greater things, we always have to be aware that realism to ones situation has to be taken into account. We have to be realistic in our
approach to many aspects of Football Club business. We have to ensure that our aims are achievable, and the outcomes possible. Whilst progress is the yard stick with what we want to be measured by,
we must not allow that progress to undermine the wellbeing of the football club.
It is our aim to unite all people involved in the Football Club, from the Boardroom to the Bootroom, from the office staff to the playing staff, we will all strive to work together
for one common aim, and that is the benefit of Rochdale Association Football Club.
An often overused word that a great many pay lip service to. However it is a word and a value that we strongly believe in at Rochdale Association Football Club
Respect each other
Respect your opponents
If we all pull together and work conscientiously to develop, improve and do our very best in our own individual roles within the Club, we will have a much better chance of winning
and or succeeding. If along the way we succeed in working hard and winning, the journey will be much more enjoyable for having had that experience.
We must ensure that this is enshrined in all we do. At all levels, both on and off the pitch, and it must encompass all involved with Rochdale Association Football Club, Chairman,
Directors, Management, Players, Staff and Supporters. The good name of Rochdale Association Football Club must always be foremost in our thoughts and actions.
The club promotes these values and beliefs to all players in the Academy and asks that these be upheld in all training and games.
