Keep your used Christmas stamps to help support children with cancer

Charity CLIC Sargent use donated stamps to raise much needed funds to support and care for children with cancer.  League Secretary, Jenny Linford, has been supporting CLIC Sargent for years and would like to urge others to do the same. “I collect all the old stamps I get,  from post delivered to the league and from my own personal mail, and send them onto CLIC Sargent. There are stamp collectors all over the world that pay the charity good money for something that most people just throw away. It’s such a good cause.

Please drop your stamps into Jenny Linford 47a Pine Road Winton or pass to your secretary to bring to the February Rules Revision meeting


In line with Government and FA advice, with our priority being the health and wellbeing of all, the BYFL League Officers have decided that the Cup Finals due to be played on 29th March be CANCELLED.

The BYFL league season in all age groups has been postponed for the foreseeable future.Friendly matches cannot be sanctioned by the BYFL as per FA rules.

We appreciate the disappointment this will cause but our hands are tied and we must follow Government advice in these unprecedented times.Once again, thank you for your patience.

Jenny Linford

League Secretary

Many thanks

BYFL Fixtures Off 16th Feb

Heavy rain and high winds are forecast once again this weekend (16/02/20). We have received emails/messages from clubs with concerns over pitch conditions. We have also considered the welfare of families travelling and general playing conditions due to storm Dennis. Parks have already called off their pitches. Therefore, we are going to blanket call off ALL BYFL games for Sunday except for the Dorset FA and Hampshire FA Cup Games (as we cannot call these games off).
Have a good weekend.

BYFL Officers.

We cannot call off the Hampshire FA or Dorset FA Cup games so they may go ahead. If they do please can you let Duncan have the results or cancellation as soon as possible.
