To all clubs
The NWFT would like to extend our good wishes to all involved with football and the wider community.
It’s wonderful to see grassroots football back, especially after last season had to be voided and this season has seen so much disruption. Hopefully, the worst is now behind us, and we can move forward with much optimism.
We now though look forward to the 2021/22 season and as you were aware the NWFT was determined to support its member clubs, through what is an incredibly challenging period for everybody, and for the 2020/21 season brought in the following pricing structure:
· Clubs will pay £50/team, capped at £250 per club. No club will pay more than £250 – irrespective of team numbers across the BBDFL & NWGFL
This meant that irrespective of the number of teams entered in the BBDFL, no club was required to pay more than £250 for the 2020/21 season.
Season 2020/21 Fees Waived…
To further support our member clubs, we can now confirm that ALL FEES for the 2020/2021 season will be waived.
Any club who has made a payment will receive a full refund, or can have the payment offset against the coming seasons fees. Please contact the league secretary.
Further Investment Announced….
In addition to the above we can now announce the following additional investment projects.
1. Fee’s for the 2021/22 season will be as planned for last season, namely:
a. Clubs will pay £50/team, capped at £250 per club. No club will pay more than £250 – irrespective of team numbers across the BBDFL & NWGFL
2. Central Venue provision for U7 and U8 Paid By The NWFT
a. In addition the league is to support the U7s (Saturday Teams) and U7s and U8s (Sunday Teams) by fully funding the central venue provision.
b. This is to aid our plan to provide mentoring support to the youngest coaches and referees and provide a platform for our youngest referees to get their first outings at a friendly central location.
Registration for the forthcoming season will open as of today, May 17th. The following link gives you access to the registration platform.
Lastly, we announced previously that the Hospital Cup has now become part of the NWFT. The Hospital Cup has a long tradition of supporting local charities. The NWFT, along with the new Hospital Cup committee are delighted to keep this legacy going in the borough. The final will be played tonight at Radcliffe Borough.
