From Season 2018-2019 Durham FA will continue to administer and deliver a number of Leagues within the County.

In the past 8 seasons the Association has grown from administering two County Leagues (Under 18's Saturday & Women's Sunday) to seven (U14's, U15's, U16's, U17's, U18's, U23's & Women's League) along with Development Leagues for Under 7's who will be playing organised 5v5 football for the first time as well as Under 11's who will be experiencing their first taste of 9v9 football.

The Development Leagues provided are put in place to support the transitions within the Youth game through different formats with the Under 7's Introductory League providing children with the best environment to participate in organised football for the first time. The Under 11's 9v9 League is in place to support the transition from 7v7 to 9v9 and again to provide a positive environment plus facilities for players to experience during this transition.

The appointing of Referees and communication from the League  is excellent with clear, fair and prompt replies to queries.

As a coach and parent in youth football I can't hide the level of pleasure it is to play in your League this season . It's ran impeccably and I've failed to meet a coach disappointed in its entire structure.

March 2018 will see the return of Durham FA's Friday Night Flexible Football League which will provide opportunities to play 11v11 football for adult players who have dropped out of the game, struggle with regular weekend commitment or just want to play football in less time and with less fuss.

• No annual team entry fee
• £30.00 per team, per fixture (less than £3 per player)
• 3G floodlit pitch
• Played at a time convenient for you 
• 50 minute fixtures (25 minutes each way)
• Repeated substitutions
• FA qualified referees appointed by League
• Minimal weekly team administration
• Shorter seasons
• Unlimited squad size

The league takes place on Friday evenings, a time which has proved popular across the country being the end of the ‘working week’ and particularly popular with workplace teams, groups of friends and teams who may have folded in recent years.

In Summer 2018 Durham FA will again be organising an Over 35's League which supports the transition from Open-Aged football to Over 40's League football. Fixtures will take place on the 3G Pitch here in Chester Le Street.

We are also looking at the possibility of organising midweek 7aside Leagues.

If you would like to find out more information about our Flexible Football League, Over 35's League or 7aside League please get in touch with our FDO (Recreational) Paul Jarps.
