The league kicks off on February 25 and runs every Monday evening with 40 minutes matches played between 8 and 10pm at the Cliff Park High School.
League manager Richard Rollason described the league as “fitness with a competitive edge for people aged 16 and over. Although we have some talented footballers taking part, it’s a league for the community giving all standards of footballers the chance to play.’
Being FA affiliated the league is professionally run and only use the very best referees in the area. You do not need to be an organised or an established team, you may simply be a group of friends, work colleagues or mates from the pub.
There is no entry or registration fee to the league and teams are able to use flexible squads, so as many different players as you want throughout the season.
Last year’s winners of the Premiership, Dream Team worked their way up from the bottom of league over a two years ago after hearing about the league through the local media and have already signed up ahead of the new season.
The league is played at the Cliff Park High School and has been established for over five years, anyone interested in taking part on a Monday night can register for free online at www.soccersixes.net or contact Richard on 07929 241693
