Will pitches be playable?

Most clubs play on pitches owned by local authorities and bad weather can cause those authorities to close their pitches, check for ground landlords in Club Directory. Details of local authority pitch closures are usually printed in the Evening Herald on Friday evening before the weekend games.  Links to Local Authority websites can be found below.

Some clubs enjoy the use of privately owned pitches and in these cases contact must be made between clubs where doubt about pitches being playable arises. Notwithstanding the above, the match referee will make a decision on whether or not the pitch is playable, taking into account the safety of the players.

Details of any postponed/unplayed fixtures must be reported immediately to the League.

Remember never assume pitches are playable or not, always check first.

What day do teams play?

Currently U8 up to U11 play on Saturday

U12 & U13 play on Saturday or Sunday by choice
