Adult Saturday League Proposal for
the recent months, we (Norfolk County FA) have facilitated meetings between the
Adult Saturday Leagues; Anglian Combination League, Central & South Norfolk
League, Great Yarmouth District Saturday League, North East Norfolk Saturday
League and the North West Norfolk League with the future of Adult Saturday
League Football being the point of discussion.
you will be aware the decline in adult football is prevalent. This is due to an
array of factors some of which are out of football’s control; however, it’s a
positive time for Norfolk football, with a joint desire to collaborate and
address the evident trends and decline within the traditional game.
you will find the proposed new Saturday structure and Option 2.2, of which all
Adult Saturday Leagues are in favour of working towards and Club
representatives have had the opportunity to discuss the positives, negatives
and suggestions for the favoured Option 2.2 at recent League Annual General
2.2 will come with its challenges, as would any option, so we are all aware
that there are plenty more discussions to be had, however, it’s a good starting
point. The timeline of events have been clearly outlined with a number of
communications had in between which has been shared between all respective
leagues for their input prior to this circulation of information. These
communications are downloadable below.
is our priority, (Norfolk County FA and the Adult Saturday Leagues) that the
wider community of Adult Saturday League football are addressed and informed
post League AGM’s to receive further thoughts and suggestions on the favoured
we would like to invite all respective participants within Adult Saturday
League football to express their thoughts and suggestions on the proposal by
completing a Google Form (click here). This consultation window will be open until
Friday 3 August 2018.
look forward to hearing the feedback on Option 2.2 with the aim of supporting
us to develop and sustain the adult male game.
