Join The League!

NEW TEAMS WANTED FOR NEXT SEASON!

The League is always happy to welcome new Clubs, whether you are an existing Team or just starting out, we can get you a game!

You will already be aware of the obvious essentials to running a team such as balls, nets and kit but there may be one or two things that you have not thought of. You can download our minimum entry criteria here.

Any team can apply to enter the League, however, your home pitch must be situated within a 15-mile radius of Wakefield Town Hall (WF1 2HQ). Google Maps should be able to help you with that. Pitches are available through WMDC, however, other private pitches may be available so it's worth doing some research. It is advisable to register your interest in a pitch with WMDC as soon as possible.

Initially, your application form (DOWNLOAD HERE) should be accompanied by a cheque for £50 to cover the entry fee, made payable to "Wakefield & District Sunday Football League".

Other than that, you do not need to pay anything until the Annual General Meeting which is generally held on the last Wednesday in June each year.

Assuming that your application is in order, your Club representatives will be invited to interview to determine whether you have the relevant equipment, organisation and financial structure etc. in place to compete in the Competition.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact a League Official - details are available here.

Additionally, West Riding County F.A. are offering grants of up to £1500 to new and existing Clubs through their Grow The Game initiative. Applications for these grants close on 17th February 2014 so move fast to get your Club a financial boost.

Applications to enter the League should be received by 31st May 2014 and addressed to the Secretary. Late applications may be considered at the Management Committee's discretion but is unwise to leave it late.
