DURHAM COUNTY FA OVER 35’S LEAGUE – SEASON 2021-2022
Still want to play the beautiful game? Don’t hang up your boots just yet, the Durham County FA Over 35’s League is just for you!
The Durham County FA are looking to create a brand new League for Season 2021-22 aimed at players aged 35 and over who would like to continue to play competitive football with players of their own age.
Once we did our own insight we found there was a gap of provision for this age group and this became more obvious when we received queries asking if we could look at providing a League for older players who would like to continue play competitive football but who were not quite at the age to play for a team in the Sunderland & District Mill View O40’s League.
To be eligible to play in the inaugural season commencing in September 2021 (Date TBC) players must be at least 35 and under 40 on or before 31st August 2021.
Teams would be formed at this age group with the hope that they would then progress into the Sunderland & District Mill View O40’s League once they have reached the required age.
Fixtures would be played on either Friday evenings or Saturday mornings (depending on agreement reached by all teams at the AGM).
All administration would be online, meetings would be kept to a minimum, Referees would be appointed to every game by the League, all to allow teams to concentrate on playing the beautiful game.
Teams would be able to take advantage of the FA Matchday App to submit results/team sheets immediately after the game to see League tables updated instantly.
Entry fee is only £50 per team with no further payment required for any cup competition(s) created.
