Hi, I completely missed the announcement of this happening. If i register and pay the fee etc today, can i join into a season thats already started? I see the registration has taken place, and the first game is on Monday, but was hoping to be able to join and participate from the 11th rather than wait for next season which i think i saw as being May?

let me know, thanks



Yeah I’m the same as Kev that I missed the start and would like to play from 11th Feb if possible


Hi mate, get yourself signed up and the coach should be able to get you involved for next week.

#5 get signed up mate and the coach will be in touch to get you started ASAP.


Hi, I signed up last week, just missing the induction event. It wasn’t very clear if I could still participate in this round of matches or wait until the next league starts (in May?)

However I’ve just received a ‘you missed a session’ email, I didn’t know I was invited. Assuming i just turn up next week in some kit and get put on a team. Any particular time?


Thanks , all signed up (although using a diff email to this one): I’ve previously played in London for one season over 2 years ago, couldn’t register as email address was already in use so just re registered. Hopefully will hear from coach soon and be able to get involved.


Hi signed up tonight after speaking to a friend yesterday is it ok to come along tomorrow and play in the same team he plays for the whites


Think 11 players in a team is far to many it means on average you got to sub off every 2.45 minutes that means over the course of a month you are only playing 12 minutes and for 25 quid think its a bit steep can this be talked about in a more broader scale/meeting


Hi mate,

We will only look to put 11 players into a team if requested to by the captain due to none playing members or shift workers who are regularly unavailable for sessions.

On average we see an attendance rate of 75% across a league which means most teams of 10 have 7-8 players available from week to week.

Hope this helps, Cheers, Ben.


Our captain said we has enough at 8 but people are still being added i just think as we get fitter in the weeks ahead we will just want to play the whole game. Think you should have done 8 teams of 8 players and if people let you down thats tuff i didnt sighn up to be a spectator
