We DO NOT tolerate discrimination.


Regardless of ethnic origin, sexual orientation or age. Whilst we understand that this sometimes happens in life it is your responsibily as clubs to police these matters within your team in the first instance.


We will take strong sanctions against any individuals or teams who offend.


We pride ourselves on the friendly league we are and welcome new faces to join us.

Whether you are a new team looking to join a competitive Sunday league, a player wishing to join an existing club in our league, a qualified referee who wants to officiate on Sundays in a league or someone wanting to join our league committee or administration.

Join League Advert (2)


Our league is by invitation only. All potential new teams will need to meet for an interview with the league management committee to discuss their inclusion to the league.


All clubs would need to affiliate themselves to their local County FA in order to play in sanctioned competitions and this ensures the club is within the FA structures of football. Affiliation takes place pre-season and must be done on a yearly basis. Annual Subscription fees for a London Football

Association affiliation number costs £55:00 More information on the London FA affiliations here.


The FA has introduced a rule making it mandatory for Adult 11-a-side teams to also have Personal Accident insurance in place for the whole of Season 2013/14. Public Liability insurance is also mandatory and all clubs should carry an indemnity limit of no less than £10,000,000 for any one occurrence. More information on the London FA Personal and Public insure here.


League Fees £100 per season joining fee. New Teams also will be asked for a £100 goodwill, returnable if withdrawing from the league after completing fixtures and if owing no debts. Pitch Fees: £100 for first 2 pitch permits @ £50 each, and then £100 for two more permits at the start of each month.


If you would like your team to express an interest to join our league then you will need to ring the Vice Chairman of the league Ted Gore on

07956 303 053 to arrange a meeting.


Many players email asking "how do I join a team".


Visit the Teams Looking For Players page of the website to see which teams are actively seeking new players for their clubs.


Or be more pro-active and visit each divisional page of the website and click the club contact information link and contact the club secretary directly yourself. Bear in mind that there is a cut off point for players being able to join teams and this is usually the first week in March. After this point you will not have your player registration form sanctioned by the league. The same will apply if you have previously played in the league where your club still has unpaid fines or fees.


We have great referees within our league and are always on the lookout for more, whether experienced or just starting out. All of our referees are full qualified and registered with the appropriate official authorities and we will not take on referees who do not have these requirements.


For more information on how to become a referee or for the relevant bodies to contact for courses and qualification requirements then visit our referees page here.


Any questions you have can be addressed by our Referees Secretary Jermaine Wright. You can call Jermaine on 07740 379 177 or
