2018-19 Affiliation and Competition Entries

The affiliation window for schools wishing to participate in the 2018-19 County Cups is now open.

To enter the Middlesex Schools' FA Leagues and Cups, individual schools need to complete a simple online form. The deadline for entries is 30th June 2018. This will allow for entry checking prior to the draws being made for each cup and will enable MSFA to send out the draws before the end of the current school year, which is intended to assist schools with fixture planning.

As in previous seasons, MSFA will be running 12 knockout cups, from Under-12 through to Under-18, including three Girls' Cups.

Any school not currently participating in these tournaments who would like to is welcome to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Primary Stars Kit & Equipment Scheme Open

Primary Schools across England and Wales can get their hands on a Nike football kit for their team or equipment to use in lessons, all for free.

The Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme opened for applications on Tuesday, 20 February and schools registered to Premier League Primary Stars can apply for the kit and equipment.

Schools can claim 14 pieces of children's kit, plus a tracksuit for the teacher.

The equipment package includes 12 Nike match balls, training bibs, pop-up goals, and many other things that teachers can use to create active classroom sessions.

Last year more than 3,700 kits and equipment packs were donated by the Premier League.

Teachers or parents keen to have these for their schools should register them with Premier League Primary Stars so they can apply. 

So far more than 12,000 schools have done so to take up the free resources available to school teachers that can inspire girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

Teaching materials cover subjects from English and Maths to teamwork and PE, with free to download activity ideas, worksheets, lesson plans, fun assemblies and exclusive videos.

Schools should visit www.plprimarystars.com/kit-scheme to see if they are eligible and how to apply for the kit and equipment.

Table Adjustments in Inter-District Leagues

A number of adjustments have had to be made to the League Tables in the Inter-District competitions following the matches of 20th January 2018.

Camden & Islington District SFA

After the U15 Star Shield match between Camden & Islington and Brent on 20th January 2018, which Camden & Islington won 5-2, it became apparent that Camden & Islington had fielded a substitute whose school was not, in fact, within their district. This was immediately reported to MSFA and while the Association accepts that no deliberate attempt was made to gain an advantage, the decision has been made to deduct three points from their total in accordance with Association Rule 2v.

Haringey District SFA

This association has entered teams in all of the Association's Inter-District Leagues, but has forfeited the vast majority of its fixtures. Haringey's U12 side has not fulfilled a single fixture, while the teams at U13, U14 and U15 have each played one match but failed to field teams in any of their other fixtures.

With this in mind, the Association has concluded that Haringey District SFA's consistent concession of fixtures is unfair to the other districts who have taken part in these competitions. As such, the decision has been made to expunge the records of Haringey's U12-U15 teams inclusive from the relevant League Tables and to cancel those fixtures that remain outstanding.

Haringey's Under-11 team, which has fulfilled its most recent matches in the Batchelor Cup, shall continue in that competition and their future fixtures remain valid.
