The ADFL 96th consecutive season begins on Sept 3rd with the Annual 6 a-side Competition at Sutton Scotney.

Despite being one of the 'smaller' Leagues in the County, the ADFL launches its 96th consecutive season on Saturday Sept 3rd with the popular 6 a-side Tournament at Sutton Scotney.
With 9 teams entering the League, this gives a workable format for the League to operate a successful and competitive season, and together with the Cup Competitions available, a full season is envisaged.
We did lose one or two Clubs last season, but that has been made up with new Club, Overton A joining our League and looking forward to what's ahead!
A new initiative has been introduced this season with a Vets Over 35 Division and with 5 teams already signed up, this gives again, a workable format.
Sounds interesting? - then speak to the League Secretary - rules are simple 11 a-side, and must be 35 on the day of the match!
Walking Football has already made its mark - see seperate article!
