The League is proud to announce that sanctioning was approved by Nottinghamshire FA to provide Saturday football starting next Season 2016/17 in
the above age groups.
Unfortunately we did not attract enough teams to start the Season in September 2016 (having received 5 x Under 7's and 5 x Under 8's team
applications) but we haven't given up. With your support we hope we will be in a position to provide mini soccer games locally for the children of Mansfield/Ashfield starting in January 2017, for anyone who is interested.
Just to keep you in the picture, we also received 3 x Under 9's team applications but the League was asked by the Chad Mansfield Youth League to withdraw provision for this age group to give them a chance to achieve an Under 9's again this Season themselves. The League agreed to this but
because they haven't achieved this age group themselves afterall, we will be happy to take applications again in accordance with our sanctioning.
KicKStart started on Sundays in 2002 with 6 teams and started part way through last Season on Saturday with 8 teams as a trial. Most of these teams
re-applied but there were not enough applications overall to make a competition of it. Most of these teams therefore transferred to Sunday for now.
We have now got 103 teams playing next Season on Sunday (a record year for entries) so who knows what the future holds, with your help. The League can facilitate the provision of football, but it is the teams that make the League tick (or should that say kick).
If you are interested in joining us on Saturday after Christmas, all you have to do is download a Saturday Club Application form and Saturday Team Application form from our website. See Documents & Links.
