The TWR Trade Frames Wearside Combination League last night elected new club AFC Wearside into the fold for the 2012/13 season.

But four clubs – Hetton New Inn, Three Horse Shoes, Silksworth Golden Fleece and Hollycarrside – resigned for various reasons.

The league will still accept applications to join for the coming season, and will try to assist the formation of new teams. All clubs get a share in the league sponsorship.

Any teams interested should call Peter Maguire on 07545 549830 or email peter.maguire@wcfl.org.uk

Interestingly the league will take part in the FA’s two-year trial of repeat substitutions (roll on roll off). The league feel this should have a positive effect of player participation and will help clubs retain players when all five subs can take part in the game.
