THE SUNDAY LEAGUE TEAM WHO ARE 'FAMOUS'
FOR HAVING ALL THEIR MATCHES CAPTURED ON VIDEO

BARNET SUNDAY LEAGUE CUP DRAWS FOR SEASON 2018-2019   -  Updated 12.12.18

This season, the Barnet Sunday League have a SENIOR CUP for all teams in the League, a League Junior Cup for Divisions Two & Three, and a CHALLENGE CUP for teams in the Premier Division & Division One, which includes ourselves.
In the LEAGUE SENIOR CUP, we received a Bye in the First Round and then beat Division Two side Crews Hill in the Second Round. Our reward for that victory is a Third Round (last 16) tie Away to Zenit St. Whetstone Reserves, who are currently top of the Division Three table and have only lost one match all season.

In the LEAGUE CHALLENGE CUP, we have been drawn at Home to mid-table Premier Division side Enfield Athletic in the First Round, then if we win that game, we will be Away to New Barnet (from our division) in the Second Round (last 16).

These League Cup fixtures are likely to be played sometime in January.
The League Cups are all being drawn round-by-round (live on Facebook or recorded for viewing on You Tube) this season ‘FA Cup’-style rather than all rounds as one complete draw being made at the start of the season. County FA Cup competitions are also being done likewise as more use is being made of social media across the board.

TWO TEAMS WITHDRAW FROM DIVISION ONE

We are now down to just 10 teams in Division One of the Barnet Sunday League as both Edmonton Blades and The Beehive BHP Seconds have decided to withdraw from the League. Blades have folded due to a lack of players and a subsequent lack of income to pay their pitch fees, while The Beehive Seconds withdrew in protest at the League forcing them to play in a division that was too high for their ability. Before the withdrawal of these two teams, we were sitting 5th in the table out of 12 teams, but because we beat both teams twice, we have now had those points taken away and we are now subsequently nearer the bottom of the table as a result !

PLAYER REGISTRATIONS & OUR SQUAD FOR SEASON 2018-2019

We currently have 39 players registered with the League for this season, although some of those have ‘left’ already after being unable to get into the squad for League matches. We are now starting to build a settled squad of players though, and the PLAYER PROFILES pages on this website will continue to be updated to include those regular players only.
New players are still welcome to join the club if they are potentially better than what we have already got, but they MUST read the Club Information section here first.

  

YOU TUBE MATCH HIGHLIGHTS COMMENTARY

As always, highlights of all of our matches this season will be shown on You Tube, with the links to those highlights appearing here on the Match Reports page. This season we are aiming to include a professional commentary on all our match highlights, with our League & Cup matches so far having been done by talkSPORT’s Barry Swain. Other commentaries may be done by younger/trainee personnel from Barry’s stable of commentators from his Commentary Workshop.
For this to be done all season though, we need sponsorship from interested companies at £50.00 per match. This will include having your logo and website address in the opening titles and mentioned by the commentator at the start of his commentary. We are expecting the views of our match highlights to increase to well over 1,000 per match with the addition of these commentaries once we have worked on publicising them properly.
Please contact Club Secretary Laurence Hughes if your company are interested. Specific matches can be selected if the opposing team have links to your company.

  

MIDWEEK TRAINING SESSIONS THIS SEASON

Due to work shifts, University placements and the majority of our players generally living too far away to travel to Edmonton in midweek, we have not had any training sessions during the season for two years.

However, as last season was ruined by a lack of teamwork from us having to use 60 different players, many of whom did not know each other and were thrown straight into matches without us being able to see them play first, we have now hired half a full-size floodlit 3G pitch at Enfield Playing Fields for a one-hour session every week on Wednesday evenings (from the 5th September onwards) between 9.00 - 10.00 p.m.
The drive-in entrance for the 3G pitch is in Donkey Lane, EN1 3PL, and that is where we will meet as we cannot use changing rooms & showers.

Midweek training sessions on the actual pitch will be used for ballwork and tactics only, but we will also use the playing fields outside the cage for a 30-45 minute fitness session beforehand depending on the weather.
All players attending training will be charged £5.00 each as the facilities are expensive to hire. Players who have not paid their Annual Subs (including trialists) MUST pay their £5.00 fees on the night (either in cash or online into the club account). If new players brought along by currently-registered players do not pay, then that amount will be added on to the subs owed of the current player responsible.

All players MUST make sure their bring the correct footwear for playing on a 3G pitch, which is plastic moulded studs only.
