Teams wanted for league
5:48pm Monday 7th January 2013 in Sport
STRETFORD’S energetic six-a-side community football league is looking for teams of all ability to take up the challenge this winter.
The league runs every Monday evening with 40 minutes matches played between 6.00pm and 7pm at the Stretford Sports Village Astroturf in Stretford and free entry to all teams that sign up in January.
League manager Chris Sockett described the sport as “fitness with a competitive edge” for people aged 16 and over.
“Although we have some talented footballers taking part, it’s a league for the community giving all standards of footballers the chance to play,” and also gives you the opportunity to work off that Christmas Pudding ” he said.
“It is professionally run and we use the very best FA qualified referees in the area.
“You do not need to be an organised or established team, you may simply be a group of friends, work colleagues or mates from the pub.
“There is no entry or registration fee to the league and teams are able to use flexible squads, so as many different players as you want throughout the season.”
The top two teams from each division can be entered into the national six-a-side cup in London in July for free, while trophies are awarded to the winners, runners-up and top goalscorer and team of the month awards etc.
Anyone interested in taking part can register online at www.soccersixes.net or contact Chris on 07528 380 094.
