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

Due to the Government announcement on Tiers within Dorset and the area that the DYFL covers, we have clubs in both tiers.  Even through Youth games can be played in both tiers (Tier 3 – Dorset and Tier 4 – BCP) as long they are within the same tier the League have decided to suspend the League for 2 weeks, our decision process was the following:

  1. Schools are being staggered back and the Government announced that ‘all children should be back to school by 18th January’.
  2. Some Teams may have children in the same team, that may live in either tiers.
  3. Some Coaches may live in a different tier to the clubs they coach.

This also gives the League time to look at the fixtures and amend the fixtures.  Teams for the following 2 weeks (after we resume) will be playing games against opposition that are in the same tier.

The League recommences 23rd / 24th January 2021.

The League would like to wish all clubs, club officials,  players and parents a Very Happy New Year and lets hope 2021 will be a better year than 2020 was.



Ali Clark

Dorset Youth Football League General Secretary
