Team requirements

Each team can register as many players as they wish to. Guest players can be used if you are short of players. Each game is 7-a-side with rolling substitutes. The captain is responsible for all players in their team. Shin guards must be worn for all matches.


All matches are 40 minutes long, with approximately 5 minutes for a half time break. Kick off times remain the same for each league each season. Each season will last for 10 weeks and consist of every team playing each other twice. The cost of a match is £26 per team.


At the end of each season the champions of each league will receive a prize. We also secure sponsors who donate additional prizes from time to time.

All teams that take part in the league will receive FREE tickets to an Accrington Stanley match during the season (Please advise what match you would like to attend at least 14 days in advance and tickets will be brought to your SSL match prior to the game you will be attending).
