After the disappointment of seeing England s
ent home early in the world cup, our spirits are raised as we kick off a new season of the Norfolk Christian Football league.
There were several enquiries from new teams that wanted to enter the league which was very encouraging but unfortunately a few fell by the wayside. But we do welcome Surlingham Tornadoes, Old Catton Junior FC
and Worstead Wolves
to the U10 league, all supported by their local churches, giving us nine teams in the league.
In the U12 league we have six teams with Stoke United
and Heigham Park Rangers
moving up from the U10s
In the U14 league there are eight teams and we welcome New Buckenham Junior FC
for the first time and Heartsease
entering two teams.
The U16 have ten teams in the league with Heigham Park, St Johns
and Lighthouse [Sheringham]
with two teams each, so lots of local derbys to play.
The adult league has shrunk from 14 to 11 teams, which means just one division instead of two this season.
The adult league kicked off on Saturday September 6, followed by the U12, U14 and U16 on September 13, with the U10 league on September 20.
is our new league secretary and proving already to be a great asset to the league. We are looking to forge close links with ENYP as both organisations seek to work with the churches, to share God’s love with the young people involved in football and all types of youth work. You can contact Lucie at email@example.com
We are aiming to send out regular monthly e-news updates including latest news, team profiles, match reports and complete results, fixture and table links with any admin matters we need to cover.
Please send us in any news about your team including short match reports (ideally with a picture or two) to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will feature them on the website. We also want to feature all sides in our Team of the Month profile slot.
To be included simply send a team picture and some background about your team and current side to email@example.com
Have a great season.
