Close season round up.

An end of season article containing a wide variety of topics.  A number of 'frequently asked questions' are addressed such as 'How do I enter a new team?' and 'What Division will we be in?'  There's also news on 'Rumourmonger', availability of summer pitches and club websites.  Updated with news of a summer pitch for hire at Thornton.

   Firstly, I'd just like to say thanks to you all for another entertaining season of Sunday league football.  There's rarely been a dull moment and although it's sometimes hard work it certainly makes for an interesting hobby. 

Many thanks to Leigh who stepped in just after Christmas to take over the technical and financial aspects of running the site leaving me clear to write the content.  Many thanks also to the BFSFA committee.  It's all run smoothly since Christmas and we appreciate their full co-operation in relation to the early provision of results, scorers and fixtures.

1) Summer Pitch availability


The season may just about be over but a number of club's are still desperate for their weekly fix of football action.  This summer we no longer have the Compere Cup which will lessen the opportunities for action.  The council realise they made a mistake last summer in leaving the posts up at many grounds.  As a result venues like Commonedge, Stanley Park and Anchorsholme were badly hit and frankly, they never recovered.

It's still to be confirmed but it looks as though the Mereside pitches will be available from May 20th at
