THIS weekend heralds the start of the new Gainsborough and District Sunday Football League season.
The good news is that the league is bucking the trend with an increase in the number of competing teams.
Seven new clubs have joined the League this forthcoming season and with only one resignation there are now 46 in the league.
The management committee have kept the number of divisions at four but there are now 12 teams in the bottom three leagues and 10 in the Premier.
With four cup competitions and the county cups to play for all teams should have quite a full fixture list.
It is the intention of the management committee to hold monthly club meetings and all club officials are urged to attend.
The number of referees could be an issue and anyone looking to have a role in football who considers refereeing as an option can contact either Graham Lyner 01427 728618 or Stephen Lilley 01427 728618.
The management committee wish all clubs an enjoyable 2012/13 season.
