Have your say

A NEW 11-a-side summer adult football league will kick off in Chester-le-Street this month.

The Sunday Summer League will consist of 50-minute games, kicking off every Sunday morning between 9.30am-12.30pm at the Riverside Sports Complex, next to Durham County Cricket Club, on its full-size, 3G artificial pitch.

The league starts on May 31 and will be completed by August 2. The weekly cost is £25 per team per week and includes Durham County FA referees and the pitch hire.

John Topping, company secretary at Durham County FA said: “We believe this league is ideal for pre-season friendlies or new teams who may want to try a couple of months of games before entering into the traditional league season. Furthermore, we know there are also players who have signed on and are part of large squads but rarely play and this format allows the flexibility and freedom to keep playing and stay active.”
