Season 2019-2020

New Club - Pre-Season Meeting.

As is our custom for all NEW clubs to our League, to hold an information meeting to  pass on details of how our League is organised and other information to help you in your work as a Club Secretary.  The meeting is also open to any existing Club Secretary's who wishes to attend.


Among the topics to be covered are Player Registrations, FA Whole Game System, our Match Report Form requirements, notification of match results, Code of Conduct, our League website, issuing of fixtures,General Meetings, and Referees together with anything else you require guidance on.


The meeting will take place at 7.30pm on Monday 12th August at Ambleside Sports Club, Ambleside Way, Nuneaton  CV11 6AT.

Clubs - Change of Name

Secretary's should note that Tin Hat FC members of Division 3 have now changed their name to Ashby Road Sports FC. Whilst Lion FC also in Division 3 become White Lion Bulkington FC.

Experienced Referees Sort !

During the close season the management committee worked hard to attract NEW Clubs in an attempt to buck the trend, which as seen many Sunday Leagues in England lose membership and, in some cases, go out of business altogether.  Following our efforts, we attracted 11 NEW Clubs from not only Nuneaton, Bedworth and North Warwickshire but also from Coventry & Hinckley, bringing our membership up to 50 teams whom will compete in Four Divisions.


We now must look at the strength of our Referees Panel to ensure all our games are covered by Official Referees.


Our current panel of loyal officials is unfortunately not being added to on a regular basis, and this is a priority we need to address.


Courses for NEW Referees are held by the Birmingham FA every year, but take up is low, due to several reasons one of which is costs.  The NDSFL already assists financially, part sponsoring NEW local candidate’s thus reducing the financial burden.  This will help long term but the need for more experienced officials is even more pressing.


The NDSFL can offer Premier Division football at a HIGH Level, boasting several teams who have been successful at County and FA level.  Games are centered around Nuneaton, Bedworth, North Warwickshire, Coventry and Hinckley with games being played on Sunday mornings.  The Fee this season set by BCFA is £32.00 per game.


Joining us would give you variety, New Teams, New Challenges, and maybe other additional career opportunities.


Any Referee interested in joining the NDSFL Referees Panel in 2019/20 will need to contact the Referees Secretary to get further information.
