Six-a-side vacancies in new Ripley league

Budding footballers, drinking pals, work collegues or best mates are the order of the day in a top class six-a-side league being staged at Mill Hill School Astroturf in Ripley.

The league is run by Soccer Sixes who are the biggest FA affiliated provider of small sided football in the country, boasting more than 250 leagues throughout the UK.

The action takes place on Monday evenings, starting on July 23, between 7pm-9pm and anyone over the age of 15 can take part.

Each week all teams play an intense 40-minute match which will be officiated by a qualified FA referee. All equipment is provided and league winners will receive a new kit while runners-up will be rewarded with trophies.

A Soccersixes spokesman said: “The local area full of people who love football so there is no reason why we shouldn’t get a league going there. We work closely with our teams and FA qualified referees and we believe it is important to the people of Ripley to have such a league running.

“The facilities and match officials are fantastic and we look forward to welcoming new teams to the league although they should act quickly to avoid disappointment. Teams can be of any standard, a side who already play together, friends or even drinking buddies from the pub.”

Spaces are limited and anyone who is interested should log onto and complete an entry form or call Soccersixes on 07528 380 094.
