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 and 8's.
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's annual presentation for the above age groups will take place at the Festival Hall, Hodgkinson Road, Kirkby in Ashfield, Notts. NG17 7DJ on Saturday 18th June 2016. More details to follow for the qualifying teams.
This presentation is for the winners and runners up of the League Championship in all the above age groups, the Under 12's
Division 1 & Division 2; the Under 12's Challenge League and the Under 13's and 15's Champions League
