7s Football

A great halfway house between 5s and 11s, giving you the spirit of a small team but with extra scope for tactics.

Weekly 7s league 

Where and when

The league runs on a Thursday night from 18.15–21.15. Teams can register either for the 18.15-19.45 league or the 19.45-21.15 league.

All fixtures take place under floodlights on one of our 3G artificial pitches at Cochrane Park Sports Ground. 

League format

16 teams take part in the Intramural 7s league, split into two divisions of eight.

Fixtures are 40 minutes long, with 2 x 20 minute halves. All teams play each other once. Once all the league fixtures have been played, the top four teams from all divisions qualify for the knockout play-offs.

All games are assigned Northumberland FA qualified referees with each team rwquired to pay a weekly £5 referee fee.
