Here are a list of rules for the Stroud Friday League that all players and teams must agree to:


  • The latest day you can cancel a match is Wednesday if you are unable to play. This is to allow us time to set up a game for your opponents; 
  • Cancellation after Wednesday will mean that you will be charged the full match fees (currently £25).
  • In any event the earlier you notify us of a problem in fulfilling a fixture the more time we have to arrange a game for the other team.
  • If you are not able to play your fixture, this will be counted in he league as a 3-0 defeat
  • You should pay match fees to a member of staff before the match begins. It would be helpful if one member of the team is responsible for collecting and paying the total match fees.
  • Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes before kick-off to make sure all games start on time.
  • Foul or abusive language towards players, referees or staff will not be tolerated and you may be asked to leave
