Accrington Stanley Community Trust 5-a-side Leagues at the Academy (Open Age). Mondays – Premier Division & Championship.
The open age consists of two divisions with promotion and relegation all to play for. The top 2 teams in the Championship will be promoted at the end of each season. The bottom 2 teams of the Premiership will be relegated and play the following season in the Championship hoping to bounce straight back up! Please note all players must be over the age of 16.
Veterans 35+ Mondays – Premier Division
The Veterans league is for men aged 35 years or over with games being played on a Monday night with kick off times between 7pm and 8.40pm. This is a good option for those teams who would rather play in a league specifically for their age bracket.
Each team can register up to 12 players at any one time. Guest players may be used if you are short of players. Each game is 7 a-side with rolling substitutes. The captain is responsible for all players in their team. Shin-guards must be worn for all matches.
We will provide a referee for every match.
