Wakefield Sunday League will have nine new teams for 2022-23 season

The Wakefield & District Sunday Football League has now accepted a total of nine new teams into the league for the 2022-2023 season – with two more accepted since the AGM.

New clubs who will take part in the forthcoming campaign are: Alverthorpe Athletic, Dale FC, Eggborough Eagles, Fenton FC, Flockton FC, Knottingley Railway, Mount Pleasant, Staincross FC, Stanley United Juniors (Sunday).

Altofts Cricket Club FC, who were successful in their application to join the league, have subsequently withdrawn their application due to a lack of volunteers to help manage the team.

Should no more teams fold, the league would consist of 10 teams in each of its four divisions.
