As a very active League we run a Senior League and five additional Adult divisions. We also run an under 18 league and a Veteran League each split to consist of two divisions.

Issued Tuesday 1 December 2020Click Here to read the guidance and related documents
Following on from the Governments statement, and subsequently the FA, suspending all non-elite sport until the beginning of December at the earliest, the Dorset Football League have decided not to resume fixtures until the weekend of 9th and 10th January 2021 providing no further restrictions are imposed.
This decision was not an easy decision to make nor was it taken lightly however we, as a committee, feel that it is the correct one considering the current circumstances that we are all in and everyone's wellbeing is paramount therefore there will be NO fixtures until the date stated above.
We were due to have a 2-week break at Christmas and many clubs will have outstanding County Cup games that will take place in December so please either contact the County that you are affiliated to or check their website for cup game details.
I must stress that the decision not to resume the season until January was decided by the Dorset Football League committee and NOT your respective County FA,s so if you have any queries regarding this please contact myself or any of the committee members, who's details can be found on the DFL website.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind each and every one of you that we ALL have a responsibility to adhere to the guideline's set out:
We all want to be able to return to some form of normality as soon as possible and each and every one of us has our own part to play in that for it to be able to happen.
