For example; if you are an Under 7’s team this Season 2018/19 you become an Under 8’s team for KicKStart Summer Football 2019. This gives the new Under 7’s teams wishing to join us next Season a chance to gain some experience in preparation for the KicKStart Winter League that starts on Sunday 8th September 2019.

The official closing date for entries is 15th April 2019.
Due to the excessive amount of cancellations, the management committee has asked the under 7's Managers/Coaches to vote on a change of venue.
This decision has not been taken lightly as we understand the frustration it may cause to change venues for a second time this season. However, we believe it is in the best interests of the teams (and more importantly the children) to be playing regularly on a well maintained site.
The managers/coaches have chosen (with an overwhelming majority) to change the site at which they play their games.
From Sunday 31/03/19 all fixtures will be played at Unwin Road in Sutton-in-Ashfield. Details can be found in the venues section of this site.
Here are some helpful directions.
We apologise for any short term disruption this may cause and hope you understand the reasons for doing so.
The FA have approved Temporary Dismissals (more commonly known as Sin Bin) to be mandatory from 2019/20 for all grassroots leagues nationally from Step 5 to 7 in the National League System on Saturdays for men’s, Tier 5 and below for women’s and for all other leagues outside of the National League Systems, so other open age leagues and youth leagues.
The Nottinghamshire FA will be delivering a number of roadshows around the County to introduce this process and educate the many referee’s and team officials in how this will work.
For the launch of these roadshows the first one will be at the One Call Stadium, Mansfield Town FC on Tuesday 9th April 2019 from 6.15pm to 7.15pm
Those that attend will then be offered a free ticket (saving £7.00) to watch The Nottinghamshire FA Saturday Senior Challenge Cup Final between Basford United FC and Carlton Town FC.
Spaces are limited for this roadshow so please book fast to reserve your place.
*This event is aimed at referee’s, team manager/coach or team captain (those that have not been part of leagues already operating Temporary Dismissals or received the training at Referee Associations)
On these roadshows we would like one person per team to attend, this will be a huge challenge over the Spring and Summer period, but it is essential that the message gets out into the football community.
