A new six-a-side community football league has been launched which encourages players and teams of all abilities to take part.

The league runs every Sunday evening with 40 minutes matches played between 7.00pm and 8pm at Rowley Lane Sports Ground in Arkley.

League manager Chris Sockett said: “Although we have some talented footballers taking part, it’s a league for the community giving all standards of footballers the chance to play.

“It is professionally run and we use the very best FA Qualified referees in the area.

“You do not need to be an organised or established team, you may simply be a group of friends, work colleagues or mates from the pub.

“There is no entry or registration fee to the league and teams are able to use flexible squads, so as many different players as you want throughout the season.”

The top two teams from each division can be entered into the national six-a-side cup in London in July while trophies are awarded to the winners, runners-up and top goalscorer and team of the month awards.

Teams can register online at www.soccersixes.net or contact 07528 380 094 for more information.
