NEW TEAMS REQUIRED FOR SEASON 2019-2020

New teams are welcome to join the League for next Season (2019-2020), which will start in September. Please contact League General Secretary Alex Clayton if your club are interested in joining us or whether you are a current club in the League that wishes to enter an additional team.
We have had a lot of interest from new clubs already, mainly thanks to our increased use of social media this season, the links to which can be found from our Home Page. Subsequently we are looking at having six divisions next season instead of the four that we have currently. We are aiming to have 10 teams in each division and three Cup competitions for each team to enter, in addition to County Cups should teams wish to enter those as well. So plenty of football right throughout the season. Friendly matches with teams from other Leagues can also easily be arranged with the help of our social media platforms should any teams not have a fixture on any particular Sunday.
Also next season, we will have....
- All player registrations being entered online by the Club Secretary using the Whole Game System.
  
(This means no more running around all over the place trying to obtain players signatures for paper registration forms).
- Use of the F.A. Matchday app (in conjunction with the F.A.’s Full-Time website that we have been using for the past three seasons).

- All team line-ups & goalscorers on public display on Full-Time, with Top Goalscorer awards at the end of the season.

- No more shared double-sided match forms. Pre-match player signatures no longer required.
- A brand new custom-designed (WordPress) website utilising online forms for Referees to submit their post-match reports.  
- Online payments for all League fees and invoices...as we having been doing this season.

- A larger pool of younger Referees to choose from, particularly those going for promotion.

- Over 20 teams playing at private venues. (Better pitches than local Council grounds).

- Our main Cup Finals played in Semi-Pro Non-League stadiums.

- End-of-season League Presentation Dinner for the presenting of trophies (instead of at an AGM).
- Helpful Club Admin Info WhatsApp Group for all Club Secretaries. (Has been a great success this season).

- An extension of the player registration deadline from the 28th February to the 31st March.


LEAGUE CUP FINALS -  NEW (18.4.19)

We are delighted to announce that this season’s League Cup Finals Day at Wingate & Finchley F.C. on Sunday 5th May will be sponsored by C. Michael & Co. Accountants. This includes plenty of advertising for them in the printed match-day programme and on our social media channels, while they will present the trophies to the Cup finalists on the day and also be invited to attend the League Presentation Night in June.
C.Michael & Co will also have first call on sponsorship for the whole League sponsorship package next season, but other interested companies can still contact our League General Secretary Alex Clayton to offer their services in the meantime.
The League Senior Cup Final between PARK ROYALS and HIGHGATE ALBION is our first Final of the day, kicking-off at 10.30 am, while the Junior Cup Final between ANATOLIANS and ZENIT ST. WHETSTONE RESERVES kicks-off at 2.15 pm. Admission prices for these two Finals will be announced shortly.

The League Challenge Cup Final will be played on a date and at a venue still to be arranged.


COUNTY CUP FINALS -  NEW (18.4.19)

We are proud to announce that three of our teams have reached County Cup Finals this season. Anatolians have already won the London Veterans Cup, beating London South United Vets 1-0 in the Final at Wingate & Finchley FC on the 2nd April, while Highgate Albion 3rds then made it two out of two by beating Bedfont & Feltham 3-2 in the Middlesex Sunday Junior Trophy Final on Sunday 14th April at the new Rectory Park ground in Northolt. Highgate Albion’s First Team now have the chance to make it another success for the League when they take on Old Southall in the Final of the Middlesex Premier Cup on Sunday 28th April. This match also takes place at Rectory Park with an 11.00 am Kick-Off.


LEAGUE PRESENTATION DINNER - SATURDAY 15th JUNE

The date for this season’s Presentation Night has now been confirmed for Saturday 15th June 2019 at Enfield Golf Club, Old Park Road South, Enfield EN2 7DA.

All teams have been invoiced for £50.00 for two tickets each as per League regulations, but extra tickets at £25 each can be purchased in addition. Further details will be given shortly.


TEAMS WITHDRAWING FROM THE LEAGUE

Unfortunately Crews Hill have had to withdraw from the League due to a lack of players caused by a number of season-ending injuries. As they were unable to complete 75% of their fixtures, their playing record in Division Two has now been expunged.
The amended League Tables can be viewed here on this website.


PLAYER REGISTRATION DEADLINE & EMERGENCY REGISTRATIONS

All clubs are advised that the deadline for registering players (including emergency signings) this season was the 28th February.
Next season we may look to follow the example of other Sunday Leagues and extend the deadline until the 31st March so that teams have enough players available to play into May in the event of bad weather throughout the season.


LEAGUE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE CHANGES

Please note that there have been some changes made to the League Management Committee during the past few months with new members coming on board and a number of Committee members taking on new roles.
Please make sure you view the Management Committee page on this website to see who you need to contact for various things.


CLUB SECRETARY’S CHECKLIST / RULES & REGULATIONS

With so many new teams joining the League this season and a number of new Club Secretaries being appointed for existing member clubs, it is essential that the guidelines laid out under the Club Secretary’s Checklist are referred to on the League Information Page. We also have a WhatsApp Group for Club Secretaries where we will keep them informed of news and procedures, as well as corresponding by e-mail in the usual manner.


NEW REFEREES FOR SEASON 2018-2019

We are very pleased to announce that we have secured the services of a large number of new Referees to officiate in our League this season, mainly through the help of our social media links.
New Referees are still welcome to join us this season. Please follow the instructions on the Referees Page.
