Founded 1958 - Affiliated to Cheshire County F.A. and Member of Wirral District F.A.

The Wallasey Junior Football League is a development from a Youth League formed in Wallasey in 1942. In those days, the age level was under 18 but in 1956 a Scouts League was formed and then opened to players other than Scouts and in 1958, the present League was formed.

League award winners 2012/13In 1972, the Youth League and Junior League amalgamated under its present name and continued to expand with age levels from under 11 to under 16 at eleven-a-side and under 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s for seven-a-side (FA mandatory in 2000).

In 2005 Girls Soccer was introduced at U10’s, U12’s and U14’s which has proved to be a success and due to the increasing popularity the age range was extended to U16’s in September 2007.

For the 2012/2013 season the League introduced 9 v 9 football for the under 11 age group, one year ahead of it becoming mandatory under FA Rules.

This season (2013/2014) children in the under 7 age group will play 5 v 5 football (FA Mandatory this season).

Awarded Charter StandardIn 2012 the League was awarded Charter Standard by the FA and is the first League on the Wirral to receive this prestigious award.

With over 140 teams and 2,500 registrations, the League makes a major contribution to the Youth community and is strengthened by the large number of volunteers who run the League, Clubs and their teams.

The Wallasey Junior Football League is self-financing but would welcome sponsors to support its various cup and league activities.
