The new community six a side football league in Milton Keynes has everything in needs –except refs.

Leisure Leagues, which runs the league at Stantonbury Campus, is appealing for local refs to come forward.

Teams have come forward in their dozens to play in the new competition – and more are expected to join – but match officials have been in much shorter supply.

Leisure Leagues Referee Manager Max Dorsett, having a local official is vital for the future success of the competition.

He said: “It is ideal to have a local person refereeing, and that is what this league is about, we want it to form the heart of the community and we can’t do that if we are bringing referees from other areas.”

The league take place on Tuesday and Thursday over the next few weeks and anyone interested can ring 0333 123 2340, email referees@leisureleagues.net or visit www.leisureleagues.net where you can sign up.
