just registered free league aswell awesome stuff ill be at registration but i go away for 7 days on 14th so actually miss first session…is this an issue?


Signed up and can’t wait! See you all at registration lads :+1:


Signed up last week. Looking forward to starting in September.


Just registered. Looking forward to 13th September at Preston.
See you then.


No, no issue at all as you have made us aware.

Have a good break away


Is there a WhatsApp group as it said on registering or is this the best place to chat? Thanks, Mark


This is a good place to chat, however I have just emailed the WhatsApp link out to you. Cheers


Just registered on line looking forward to 13 Sept


Signed up this morning. Looking forward to September :slight_smile:


Fully signed up… now to decide whether I want to be one of those flash prats with pink trainers…


Signed up. Do I need boots or can I get away with trainers?


Hey - not signed up to this yet but I think I will be doing, looks like a great idea!

Couple of questions. I work shifts which means that 1 in every 6 weeks I will be unavailable. The first of those would be the registration evening. How much of a hindrance is that going to be?

With it being a 14 week league, I will miss 3 games (2 through work and I have a holiday booked in December) - again, how much of a hindrance will that be?

Also would like to know the answer to the boots/trainers questions that have been asked.

Assuming these aren’t massive problems I should be able to join.

Cheers guys.


Hi @Joey @PartyPoison
Most venues are 3G / astro pitches however you would be best checking with the venue at first point of call to see what boots they would recommend using. Normally trainers / Astro trainers would be the best bet - you can also clarify it during your registration session.

In terms of missing sessions - this is not an issue just make sure you let your coach know also.

Also check out the FAQs below :slight_smile:


Pretty sure West View is AstroTurf. Not 100% though.


Just signed up can’t wait, might miss the registration night but after that I am always available.


Is it 11 a side?
