Five-a-side football teams only have a few weeks left to hone their skills and sign up in time for the start of the new Leisure Leagues season.

Squads will be competing for trophies, as well as possible qualification for the national mini-football championships where they have the chance to represent Hemel and could win a trip to the Algarve.

The new season kicks off on January 12 and will feature 40-minute games, played on the 3G pitches at Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club.

Matches will take place between 5pm and 8pm every Sunday evening, with a weekly fee of £32 per team.

Profits from the league will go to charity and equipment and qualified referees will be provided.

Leisure Leagues regional manager Gary Connell said: “The divisional system we operate ensures teams are grouped with other teams of similar ability.

“Whether you consider yourself as talented as Lionel Messi, or if you are simply looking for well-organised matches to practice your skills or develop fitness we guarantee you will enjoy the Leisure Leagues experience.”

For a limited time, all new teams will have their choice of a free Leisure Leagues kit.
