The Dorset Youth Football League
The DYFL was founded in May 2001, and was formally know as the Dorset Divisional Youth League, with the aim to administer youth football in the Under 11 to Under 16 age groups.
The competition is sanctioned by the Dorset County Football Association.
The League now consists of 53 clubs and 193 teams spread over 6 ages groups, with approximately 2500 registered players. Although the majority of the clubs registered with the Dorset County Football Association, there are also clubs who are registered with Hampshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Devon. As the Football Association allows mixed gender teams up to U16 age group, we have girls playing in the league in our teams playing for Season 2017/2018.
In line with the Football Association’s directive for Youth Football, the U11 league is non-competitive and all other age groups are competitive.
The Annual League Cup is competitive in all the age groups and will be run parallel with the other fixtures. The Cup Final Date for all groups will be Sunday 13th May 2018 and will be played at Bournemouth Sports Club.
