All participants will receive personal accident and public liability insurance when they fully complete a player registration form.

The cover for both the personal accident and public liability insurance is the same level of cover that is a mandatory requirement for all 11-a-side teams in Norfolk when they affiliate each season.

Furthermore, all matches will be officiated by a Norfolk County FA-qualified referee.

The closing date for entries is Friday May 7 and a full fixture list and team entry pack will be sent out prior to the start of the league.

With only limited spaces available it is important the form is returned as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Places will be allocated strictly on a first come, first served basis.
