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 49 clubs and 222 teams spread over 10 ages groups, with approximately 3,000 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 since Season 2017/2018. As of Season 2019/2010 the League now runs the Dorset Girls football leagues.

In line with the Football Association’s directive for Youth Football, the U9 & U11 leagues are 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 10th May 2020 and will be played at Blandford School.
