ADVANCED NOTICE: Updating your teams for 2024-25 season – Re-registering and removal

We have received a few enquiries regarding what to do about re-registering current teams. As happened last season, May 1st will see a section open on Scoreline to allow Club Officials only to complete the re-registering/removal of current teams process. Nothing needs to be done until then. More details on what to do and how to do it will follow towards the end of April.

Ready to add a new team for 2024-25 season? You can add them now

Existing member clubs (CLUB OFFICIALS ONLY) can start adding new teams in readiness for the 2024-25 season. Log into Scoreline. Click ‘My clubs’ in the left hand menu. Click the blue ‘club’ button on your club card (may be slow at busy times). Scroll to the bottom of ‘club teams’ and click ‘add team.’ Fill in all of the sections. MAKE SURE YOU SELECT SEASON 24/25 & SELECT THE AGE GROUP THE TEAM WILL BE NEXT SEASON. When complete, click the green ‘save’ button at the bottom.

Recruiting YEL Respect Field Officers (RFOs)

Want to help make a difference in grassroots football? We need your help to make youth football a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants on match day. We are looking to recruit additional YEL Respect Field Officers (RFOs) to join our current undercover team. RFOs fulfil a valuable, behind the scenes role. This hidden army of volunteers are the league’s ‘eyes & ears’ at YEL games. Teams do not know they have been present at a game. RFOs don’t get involved in any incidents; They simply observe behaviour of players, spectators & managers and report back to the league. RFOs are assigned games by the league. RFOs are paid expenses of £10 per report completed. RFOs are independent observers and should not be associated with any participants in a game inc referees. RFOs report on other games at the venue they are at provided they have no connection to any of the participants. We’re looking for anyone (min age 18) – mums, dads, grans, grandads, carers, refs – anyone who can be objective & blend in. for details.
