New teams join as Norfolk Christian football season kicks off 

The Norfolk Christian Football League kicks off its 2016-17 season on Saturday September 3 for the adult league and the following week, Saturday September 10 for the youth leagues. League chairman Mike Culwick reports.

The league’s recent AGM saw all of the management team re-elected, with Phil Dove taking on the role of treasurer, giving us a strong sense of support from the league as we strive to make football a real tool for church outreach.

We may have lost a couple of teams from the adult league but it still remains a competitive and well-run friendly league with teams really enjoying their games on Saturday mornings. For any churches still considering entering a team, it’s not too late to do so, just contact myself or the league for more information.

The youth league continues to be strong in all age groups, with new teams from Lowestoft, Sprowston, Happisburgh, Soul Church and Cringleford, again it’s not too late to enter a team.

Many of us attended the celebration service for league pioneer and stalwart Tim Stapleford, who died in June this year, and we will be having a special football event to honour Tim in September, details to be finalised soon. Hopefully we can have as many of Tim’s original Holy Trinity team present and maybe even play a part on the field. The annual youth five-a-side will be known as the Tim Stapleford five-a-side competition from now on as Tim was a founder member of the youth league and it really focused his passion for young people.

League looking for  sponsors

The League still requires businesses to sponsor the league and its competitions to help with the finances to enable us to continue this very important ministry through football. There are approximately 480 youth and adult players, plus officials and managers taking part in Christian football every Saturday. Then the parents and supporters, giving us over 800 people involved each Saturday. So if you can sponsor the league and advertise your business on our website please do get in touch for more details. Again please contact myself or Keith Morris at Network Norfolk to find out more.
