On behalf of the FDYFL committee we would like to thank our existing member clubs for their continued support to the League and also extend a warm welcome to new member clubs in this year’s competition. We are a Chartered Standard League aiming to provide a structured mini soccer league for young people to play based on the element of friendly activity where winning is enjoyable, playing is of more importance but the enjoyment of the game is paramount.
FA rulings for the season 2019/2020 mean that no results are recorded in matches for age groups U11 and below. Similar to last season, the League will be holding round robin festivals during the season. The league will play 9 a-side soccer at U11 and 12 and we are also delighted that we will also play under 13’s football this season with teams playing a mixture of 9 or 11 a side football.
We are delighted that this season we have a record number of clubs and teams entering the completion and we are pleased to report that the introduction of player registration’s using the Whole Game System has been successful.
The current season League Handbook and Contact Details can be found under the documents tab. We would politely request that should clubs have a question that they refer to the handbook in the first instance before contacting a member of the committee. Additional match sheets and the League’s privacy notice can also be found under the documents tab of this website.
We hope you have an enjoyable season playing in our League.

LEAGUE UPDATE - CORONAVIRUS
Below in italics is the statement received from the Kent FA this evening:
Following the Government’s announcement today, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed for the foreseeable future.
Throughout this period, we have taken Government advice with the priority being the health and well-being of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.
We are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed.
In light of this regrettably the Faversham and District Youth Football League is suspended with immediate effect until further notice.
Further communications will be issued in due course depending on how the situation develops nationally and based on any further guidance from the Kent FA.
Thank you for your continued support of the league and for all that you do for your clubs in what is a difficult time for each and every one of us.
THE FAVERSHAM & DISTRICT YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE UNITES
AGAINST DISCRIMINATION IN FOOTBALL.
We stand united with leagues and clubs across Kent against discrimination. We believe it is important to raise awareness and challenge discrimination in non-league football across Kent.
It is everyone’s responsibility to call out discriminatory behaviour from football. This form of abuse includes a reference whether express or implied to any one or more of the following characteristics:
If you hear it, report it!
Kent FA and F.D.Y.F.L. are determined to provide an inclusive football experience for anyone who wishes to play, coach, officiate, administer, support or be involved in any role in football. An experience that is reflective of our diverse communities, safe for all and free from abuse and discrimination. To find out more about how to report discrimination please read the reporting discrimination guide created by Kent FA's Equality Advisory Group or visit the Kent FA website here.
