So how much does it cost? –

The following is a guide and based on the 2018/19 season and subject to change.

County FA

Before you can play football, you need to affiliate with a County FA.  For us that’s the Worcestershire FA, although our two Colwall sides are affiliated to the Herefordshire FA.  Affiliation usually needs to be completed by the end of June each year.

Last season the County FA affiliation fee, with the minimum mandatory player insurance was £141

Worcester League Fees

New clubs are required to deposit £100 – this will be kept by the league until you withdraw.  This is a one-off deposit and doesn’t need to be paid annually for future seasons.

League fees are formed of 3 parts.  The club/team annual subscription, league insurance and the club monthly draw fee (8 draws with 1 prize of £40, and 3 prizes of £30 each month).

  • Club/Team annual subscription:  £65*
  • League insurance:                           £9
  • Club monthly draw:                        £60

*Since the FA introduced mandatory player insurance, the league has given something back and the past two season it has been £50 cash back against the annual subscription.  Therefore, the club cost for entering one team last season was £84.

Preseason is a busy and often expensive period; therefore, the Worcester League doesn’t collect fees until the end of September after a full month of fixtures.  Furthermore, the fees can be paid in two instalments to spread the cost.  New club deposits require paying by August.

Pitches

It’s the club’s reasonability to provide a suitable venue for fixtures, however the Worcester League help with club requiring a Worcester City Council pitch.  Pitch fees vary.

Referees

It’s the responsibility of the home team to pay the match day referee.  The referee fee is currently £25 plus mileage at 35p per mile up to a maximum of £10.00.

27 Jan 2018 - Sad News

It is with deep sadness and heavy heart, that we have to inform you, that Brian Poyner, long serving Secretary of Arrow F.C. and a member of the League Management Committee, died suddenly this morning. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. Would all teams participating in matches tomorrow morning, please observe a minute's silence in Brian's memory.

 



09 Dec 2017 - ALL MATCHES OFF TOMORROW - SUNDAY 10 DECEMBER

In view of the grim weather forecast, we have decided to postpone the whole Worcester League programme tomorrow morning (Sunday 10 December). When making this decision, we took into account the difficulties that a lot of players may encounter in travelling across the West Midlands.



02 Nov 2017 - Updated Link to Worcester League Full-time Site

You may have noticed that the FA are currently improving access to Fulltime for mobile users.  Whilst the improvements continue I have altered the Worcester League fulltime link at the top of this page to direct to the orginal site. 

The new user interface for mobile users can still be accessed via this link

http://fulltime-league.thefa.com/Index.do?league=5804612

It would appear that club contact details are now available via this interface which is linked to WholeGame System.  It's important that club officials maintain their personal contact details in WholeGame System as well as informing the league of any changes as usual.
