The League is proud to announce that sanctioning has now been approved by Nottinghamshire FA for us to provide Saturday football starting next Season 2016/17 from Saturday 10th September 2016.
With your support we hope we will be in a position to provide mini soccer games locally for the children of Mansfield/Ashfield on Saturdays for many years to come, as well as Sundays (of course), in the age groups of Under 7's, 8's and 9's next Season and Under 10's from Season 2017/18.
KicKStart started on Sundays in 2002 with 6 teams and started part way through this Season on Saturday initially with 8 teams. We have now got 96 teams playing on Sunday so who knows, with your help, what the future holds. The League can facilitate the provision of football, but it is the teams that make the League tick (or should that say kick).
The League Handbook was last updated on 24th January 2016 (see Documents & Links) containing full contact details and the League Rules & Regulations. Can you please check that your contact details are correct in the League Handbook and email email@example.com as soon as possible if there are any changes to be made or there is additional information to be added please.
All ongoing player registration cards can be collected from your Football Reception on the following playing Sunday from when the player registration form was received by the League Secretary. Please note that all cards must be paid for (in the sum of £3.00) when forms are handed in, otherwise they will not be processed from now on.
Fixtures can be seen by clicking on the Fixtures tab on the left, then select your age group.
