North Riding County Football Association: Friday Night Over 35’s Small Sided League

Friday Night Over 35’s Small Sided League

BBC Tees Breakfast Show Presenter and Middlesbrough FC Match day Commentator Alistair Brownlee and Eric Powell, who was recently honoured by the FA, after clocking up 50 years service to the game, were in attendance lending their support to the launch of a new five-a-side programme to get men aged over 35 back into football.

The Over 35’s Friday Night League which will officially get underway in September at Goals Teesside, is launching 2 taster sessions during the Summer months. The first taster session will take place on Friday 25th May 2012, kicking off at 6pm. Ali Brownlee said “It will give thousands of men the chance to swap their armchairs for the pitch in a relaxed atmosphere.” Eric Powell replied “With the opportunity to play at the same place, same time every week on small pitches, I’m sure the take up will be huge.”

The programme is backed by the FA’s Small Sided Football Development Fund and the North Riding County FA.  “This is a great chance for men to rediscover their love of football, just at the age when some are considering hanging up their boots”, said Steven Wade, the North Riding County Development Manager. Kash Patel, Goals Soccer Centre General Manager said “The Friday Night Over 35’s League will open up new opportunities for men who want to take part in football in a fun and friendly environment.”

With professionally managed and refereed matches, the fully inclusive Friday Night Over 35’s leagues will offer an exciting but friendly environment to play competitive football with excellent incentives available for all teams that sign up. These include drinks vouchers, Free subscription to 4-4-2 magazine plus much more.
