The Dorset Youth Football League

Founded in May 2001, and was formerly known as the Dorset Divisional Youth League, to administer youth (boys) football in the Under 11 to Under 16 age groups.

The League now consists of 51 clubs and 189 teams spread over the six age groups, with approximately 2500 registered players. As the Football Association now allows mixed gender teams up to and including the Under 16 age group, there were 18 girls registered with teams during 2014/2015 season. Although the majority of clubs are registered with Dorset, there are also clubs who are registered with Hampshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Devon County Football Associations.

For the first time during the 2015-2016 playing season the League will be running a non-competitive competition at Under 11s with the 37 entered teams being split into 6 groups.

The remaining teams in the other age groups will still be playing competitive football and these will be split into 17 divisions.

This season, each age group will have their own League Cup competition which will be run in parallel with the other fixtures. The culmination of the completion will be a Finals Days which will be played at one venue, this has been provisionally book for 8th May 2016.

The Dorset Youth Football League is sanctioned by Dorset County Football Association Limited.
