A busy summer of County 5IVES Football!

PUBLISHED: 09:55 04 June 2013 | UPDATED: 09:55 04 June 2013

Norfolk FA’s County 5IVES summer leagues have now kicked off at all seven of our specialised venues with many teams competing across our 35 divisions around the county.

If you were planning to enter a side over the close season, fear not, you still have the opportunity to do so with two new exciting leagues set to take place at the FDC.

Our new “Early Bird” 5 aside leagues will take place at the FDC on Mondays and Tuesdays for a six-week period. These leagues are designed to offer 11 aside players the opportunity to keep sharp and rustiness at bay during the close season ahead of the 2013/14 season.

These two separate leagues will run on Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 June respectively, finishing long before the 11-a-side season commences.

These leagues will also see kick-offs taking place at 6.15pm each week, so for those that are keen on a game in the early evening this is the perfect answer!

These leagues are suitable for male players aged 16 and over.


There are also a handful of vacancies dotted about our leagues. We have a space in our Ladies Premier division which takes place on Monday evenings at the FDC.

We also have space in our Thursday Fit4work business league, with all fixtures at 6.30pm.

Our one last vacancy at the FDC is in our Thursday league one division, with fixtures taking place between 7.15pm and 9.30pm.

If 6 aside is more your game then we do have a space at the UEA Sportspark league which takes place on Tuesday evenings, between 7pm-10pm.

If you are interested in joining any of the above leagues, simply call the FDC on 01603 748944 or e-mail
