2021/22 Registrations Now Open

Thursday 6 May 2021 14:00 by Skem JFL

We are pleased to announce that registrations for the 2021/22 season are now open! Please see below for more information about our reduced league fees, a new venue for the U7s & U8s age groups, and more.

New and existing teams #

  • Both new and existing teams are invited to register online now.
  • Teams that played in the league during the 2020/21 season will have their places reserved until Friday 21st May 2021.
  • After this date, places in each age group will be available to any team on a first come, first served basis.

Age Groups #

  • We are planning on accommodating the following age groups for the 2021/22 season: U7s, U8s, U9s, U10s, U11s, U12s, U13s & U14s.

Venues #

  • We are pleased to announce that the U7s & U8s age groups will play on 3G pitches at the JMO Sports Park for the 2021/22 season! They will use proper 5 a-side size pitches, with proper 12x6 goals, and the pitches are already marked out. Thank you to Charlie at the JMO for working with us to sort out this arrangement.
  • The U9s-U12s age groups will play at White Moss Road playing fields as usual.
  • The U13s-U14s age groups will play at Blaguegate playing fields (we are asking for additional pitches to accommodate the U14s age group).

League Fees #

  • We have reduced the majority of our fees for the 2021/22 season, and the Tote prize draw is no longer running.
  • The Team Registration Fees have been reduced from £50 to £30.
  • The League Fees have been reduced to a flat rate £300 per team for every age group. This has came down from £330 per team last season, and £380 per team the season before.
  • Teams now have three options for paying their league fees - Weekly (over 30 weeks), Monthly (over 8 months), or Up-Front.
  • The Referee Fees are £10 for U7s-U10s, £12 for U11s-U12s, and £15 for U13s & U14s.
  • Our fees also include entrance into three competitions for each age group - 3 cup competitions for the U7s-U11s, and 2 cups plus 1 league competition for the U12s-U14s.
  • See our updated League Fees page for more information.

Season start date #

  • We are working on the assumption that the 2021/22 season will be starting on Sunday 5th September 2021.
  • The season will run from September to May, with planned breaks for Christmas and Easter.

Pitches #

  • The pitches at White Moss Road playing fields were Verti-Drained last year and this has worked really well at aerating the pitches and helping them to drain after wet weather. We are still seeing the benefit of this but we will be asking the council if they can do this again.
  • The council will be carrying out their annual maintenance as soon as the extended 2020/21 season finishes in June, so we are expecting the pitches to be in great condition come September.

Kick-Off Times #

  • We expect to have the same or similar kick-off time slots for the 2021/22 season - 9:30am, 11am, and 12:30pm.
  • We may stagger some of the times for certain age groups to help with congestion and social distancing.

Number of Teams #

  • We are planning to have a single division in each age group next season, with 8-12 teams in each division.
