Former Premier League, FA Cup Final and Champions League Final referee, Mark Clattenburg, has given his backing to the Yeovil community 6 a side football leagues which are kicking off in May.

The brand new partnership between Leisure Leagues and Yeovil Town, will see hundreds of players in the area look to start playing on the incredible 3G pitches at Huish Park again, after seeing their physical and mental health suffer as lockdown hit over the last 14 months.

Matches are to kick off on Sunday and the world’s most famous referee is lending his support: “It’s great to see this new partnership,” he said, before teasing: “I hope to come down there and referee a game soon.”

Now its all systems go and there are just a few spaces left for new teams,  but Area Manager Ben Schumann was delighted to be kicking off: “We have worked exceptionally hard to see the leagues Covid-safe and we are looking forward to getting everyone moving again after the lockdowns,”

After months of inactivity, teams are almost back on the pitch and will be competing for big prizes too. The winners could find themselves scooping some incredible prizes in the Leisure Leagues Prize Draw.

In addition Leisure Leagues are the only registered not for profit provider of football, and they have a record of donating to good causes and charities across the country, with Ben adding: “We are proud to be different, and players across the area already understand this.”
