Durham County FA Secretary, John Topping met with League Officials and member Clubs of the Durham Alliance Combination League last week and is delighted to announce that an agreement has been reached to form the Durham County FA Alliance Adult Saturday League for Season 2017-2018.
John Topping Company Secretary stated “I am sure the Teams currently in the League plus new ones will benefit from the formation and especially with the County FA involvement as it will result in fees and administration being kept to a minimum. I am delighted with the response from the Leagues Management Committee and the Clubs and together we will build a League which will hopefully lead to a link with the National league System.”
The County now administers Leagues from U14's on Saturdays and the intention is to eventually see them move in to the Adult game.
A meeting is to be held within the next 6 weeks involving all Saturday and Sunday Leagues in an attempt to address the decline and if necessary reorganise football within our boundaries.
