Keep up-to-date with the latest football activities in the South East region on twitter @sfa_southeast
The Scottish FA South East Region are working in partnership with the Lothian and Edinburgh Amateur Football Association and the East of Scotland Football League to kick-start a brand new over 35s league this summer.
Scottish FA South Region manager David Drummond said: “We see this as an ideal opportunity for the retiring player to stay involved and also for community clubs to bring coaches together during the summer months for a chance to dust off the boots and get back on the park again.
“We are also aware of a number of Clubs in South East Region already offering 11-a-side football for this age group and we want to harness onto this and use it as platform to build from.”
Fixtures will be emailed to all registered teams including contact details for lead organisers within each team by Friday 31st of May. The first round of games will kick off on Friday the 7th of June and will run until late-August every 2 weeks. (7th and 21st June, 5th and 19th of July, 2nd, 16th and 30th of August)
Results and league tables will be posted on the website of the Scottish FA South East Region by the Tuesday following Friday games. Team organisers must submit results by 12pm on the Monday following Friday games.
Weekly costs per team will be kept to a minimum with only referee and venue hire to be factored in. The cost of both would be evenly split between both teams and is likely to be around £80 - £100 between them. At the beginning of each season, there will be a set fee of £120 to cover the insurance for any player registering with the squad (This will be fully subsidised by the Scottish FA during a team’s first year in the programme and then 50% in year 2).
Pitches and referees
Teams will be assigned a pitch and referee to play their games and both will be listed in the fixture list.
To register, simply complete the form on the RIGHT and return to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 24th of May.
