League Fees

The league fees are listed below.

League Registration Fee

  • £35 per team per season

Note that there's no discounts for clubs with multiple teams. This fee also includes a referee assessor fee (which used to be charged separately in previous seasons), which we use to help train new referees. The League Registration Fee is non-refundable and it must be paid before a team's registration will be accepted.

Weekly Fees

  • Referee fee for each match (£9 for U7s-U10s, £11.50 for U11s+)
  • £10 per week league fee (which includes entry into the Tote)

About our weekly league fees

The weekly league fees go towards the upkeep of the league and are payable for 38 weeks of the year, even on weeks when there's no games.

The weekly league fee also includes entry into the Tote, which is a weekly prize draw that all teams in the league are entered into.

Other leagues charge their fees in different ways - some leagues charge an up-front lump sum payment of several hundred pounds before the season even starts, some leagues charge higher 'pay as you go' fees when matches are on, and some leagues aren't played at a central venue like ours so those teams will have to pay pitch hire costs on top of league and referee fees. We've found over the years that it's easier for teams to pay these fees weekly, so that's why we do it this way.

Playing season

Our season runs from September to May. We only have planned breaks for Christmas and on Easter Sunday.
