Summer season so far – Wednesday nights at the FDC
The Wednesday night County 5IVES leagues at the FDC are now four weeks into the 2013 summer season, with the leagues starting to take a little bit of shape and some familiar faces at the top of the pile!
'Dry Lunch FC' lead the way with 10 points from a possible 12, with 'Boom Squad' a point behind them in second place but with a game in hand. This division has been very competitive so far this season, with lots of quality on display and it is a league where every single point is hard earned.
'Up The Spammers' switch from our Tuesday leagues to Wednesday seems to be paying dividends if early season form is anything to go by. The newcomers have won all four of their league games and have notched an impressive 30 goals in the process. The experienced 'Spartek' are second, with 'Norwich Athletic' also enjoying a positive start in third place at this early stage.

Every side in this league has managed at least one win after the first four games, which shows how well matched the teams are. It is 'World V' who lead the way, winning all four of their games to date, with an 8-5 victory against 'Arachnaphobia' their hardest fought game so far.
'Stewie's 7' will take some beating in this league. This youthful outfit have a 100pc record and already have a goal difference of plus 46, not bad going, gents! 'Top Guns' are in second place with only one defeat, which came at the hands of 'Stewie's 7'!
This league is the first of this format to take place on a Wednesday evening at the FDC. 'William Wanderers' are looking to make history by becoming the first ever champions of the Wednesday 7-a-side Premiership and have made an impressive start with 10 points from a possible 12. 'The Red Army' and 'Rapid Sienna' are both showing potential and are sure to represent a tough game for anyone on their day!
Want to get involved?
As ever there are still opportunities for new teams to join our leagues. We have a space for a 7-a-side team to enter our league on a Thursday evening.
We also have a vacancy in our Fit4work 5IVES business league, which takes place on a Thursday evening too. This is for any companies/organisations that may see it as a perfect opportunity for a bit of team bonding in a fun and slightly competitive environment against fellow businesses!
Meanwhile there is a space for a ladies team in our Monday night leagues at the centre. Any females looking to play weekly, but who may not be able to get enough players together for a team themselves, are also encouraged to get in touch with us.
Early Bird Leagues
For the summer season only we are hosting an 'early bird' league on a Monday evening. Fixtures for this league will be at 6.15pm each week and will run for just 6 weeks over the close season period. The league will represent an ideal training tool for 11-a-side teams that may be looking to get that extra bit of sharpness and fitness into their squad ahead of the 2013/14 football season.
