East Berks Football Alliance

This website is showing season 2015-2016

Club Secretaries can now enter their teams for season 2015-2016.

The deadline is 31 May.

Teams that are confirmed and paid for before the 31 May deadline will have priority and we have never turned away a team that was entered and paid for before the deadline. For each age group the number of teams entered determines the size of each division and the optimum is 10 to 12 teams but teams that have asked to enter after the deadline will not be accepted if it affects the size of the divisions.

If you are an existing member club then you do not need permission to enter a new team but you must provide the full prior history of the new team including where it previously played and say why it is leaving a previous league. We will investigate and take references for all new teams.

If you are thinking of forming a new club then please consider a) staying with your existing club or b) joining up with another existing club. If you still want to form a new club then please contact your local County FA such as Berks & Bucks FA http://www.berks-bucksfa.com.
