The Accrington and District Football League (ADJFL) is gearing up and getting ready to start the new 2019-20 season in September.

After an exciting 2018-19 season, which concluded with two weekends of cup finals, the winners across each division were crowned. It’s been a welcome summer break for all involved, but the 2300 players from 202 teams across 42 clubs are ready and raring for the new season to kick off!

This forthcoming season will be sponsored by Lea Hough in the second year of a three year sponsorship agreement.

Catering to age groups from under 7’s right through to under 16’s, the Accrington & District Junior Football League is one of the most active in the region. Having first started in 1958, the league has grown significantly over the years, now drawing in teams from not only Accrington, but also several surrounding areas including Blackburn, Darwen, Rossendale, Burnley and Colne and the Ribble Valley.

Supporting initiatives in the communities close to where we are based is something Lea Hough is keen to do. As well as encouraging physical activity in children, team sports have also been proven to offer many other benefits and learning opportunities for the next generation.

The Accrington & District Junior Football League is also one that several of Lea Hough’s Partners and staff members have been involved with over the years – both as volunteers in various capacities or as supportive parents watching on the sidelines!  The league is well run and is great fun for all involved.

Lea Hough wish all the teams involved in the league a good season ahead!
