Walking foot

New Walking Football League

Walking football is fast growing version of the game and is increasingly popular within the County.

It’s exactly what it sounds...

South Yorkshire Walking Football League will be starting up again in November 2017 and will run for 8 months – The league would invite you to join now - all teams welcome!

Following the last league, changes have been made, based on your feedback. YOU said, WE did:

-               TWO divisions Over 60s & Open Age teams to play in separate divisions so everyone gets the chance to play at a level to suit them!

-               Standard Rules – by being located at one central venue with a small pool of experienced referees the league rules will be consistent and upheld.

-               Players asked for social & competitive league games so we have tried to combine the best of both worlds with short games played respectfully & competitively.

The feedback from the last league was superb and we are hoping to top it again this year:

-               “It is a couple of hours where I can forget everything”

-               “Rekindled my passion for football”

-               “Excellent – Top Class”

-               “Has given me a purpose!”

This year the league will continue to run monthly fixtures, Wednesday afternoon 2-4pm from ONE location, Doncaster Rovers, Keepmoat Stadium, played in 5-aside caged pitches.

Fees will be kept the same £20 affiliation plus £20 per fixture, however we will be asking for a £20 deposit to cover any missed fixtures. To apply to join the league please complete and return the attached League Sign Up form (see below) to jade.elson@sheffieldfa.com.

Deadline for final entries is the 23rd October. There are limited places available in each division so please register your interest as soon as possible!
