18 minutes each way
Wednesday: 2 leagues of 9 teams
The league will run 6:30pm-9:10pm every Wednesday. All games are 5 a side and cost £640 per team for a 16 game season.
Missing games with no notice is unacceptable, we can almost always help out with extra players etc if you need them.
5 a side – roll on roll off subs when ball is dead.
There is no head height rule.
There are no offsides.
No slide tackles – you can slide to block a shot or keep the ball in play but there must be no contact with a player.
‘Kick ins’ from the sides when the ball leaves the pitch.
The goalkeeper can not leave the area, if the keeper does leave the area intentionally a penalty kick will be enforced.
The keeper can distribute the ball however they wish.
The keeper can not pick up a back pass – a free kick from where the ball was passed will be awarded.
An outfield player can not enter either area. If a defender enters his own area and gains an advantage a penalty will be awarded (e.g – blocks a shot or cuts through to gain better field position). If an attacker enters the area the goalkeeper will take control of the ball. In either case if it is the players momentum that takes you into the area the punishment will not be enforced (e.g – if you shoot outside the box and then step in the area a couple of steps after, you will not be penalised.)
For all other rules the laws of association football will apply.
If the Goalkeeper passes you the ball, you cannot go directly back to him. If this occurs a free kick will be awarded from the point of the pass.
If a team fails to show up they will be given a 5-0 loss.
If a team misses a game they get a £40 fine on top of their match fee.
We can always help out with getting players as we have a player pool of individuals who are after a game so get in touch if you need a hand one week.
