Dear Club Secretaries, managers, coaches, referees, players and parents,

Return to Football

With the re-start of grassroots football from 29th March, the League is delighted that around 200 of our teams will be taking to the pitch again in the organised friendly groups providing matches over April and May. Fixtures are posted on this site and results will be updated by League Secretaries on a weekly basis.


Club Secretaries should have received the updated F.A. guidence on Covid-19 for re-starting football and are asked to make sure the contents have been passed to all relevant individuals within their club and individual teams to ensure games take place in as safe a manner as possible.


The friendly games are not what we ideally would have wanted to be playing at this time of any season, but through them we can all work together to provide the physical and mental activity so much missed during the lockdown periods endured since we started back in September.


Enjoy your football!


Dave Drew

Dorset Youth Football League Chairman
