Grantham six-a-side league looking for teams

Have your say

Grantham’s energetic six-a-side community football league is looking for teams of all

ability to take up the challenge this winter.

The SoccerSixes league kicks off this month and runs every Sunday evening, with 40-minute matches played

between 6pm and 8pm on The Meres leisure centre astroturf. All teams that sign up in January will receive free entry to the league.

League manager Chris Sockett described the sport as “fitness with a competitive edge” for people

aged 16 and over: “Although we have some talented footballers taking part, it’s a league for the community, giving all

standards of footballers the chance to play.

“It is professionally run and we use the very best FA-qualified referees in the area.

Chris said: “You do not need to be an organised or established team; you may simply be a group of friends,

work colleagues or mates from the pub.

“There is no entry or registration fee to the league and teams are able to use flexible squads; so as

many different players as you want throughout the season.”

The top two teams from each division can be entered into the national six-a-side cup in London in

July for free, while trophies will be awarded to the winners, runners-up and top goalscorer, along with team-of-the-month awards.

Anyone interested in taking part can register online at or contact Chris on
