LAMBETH & SOUTHWARK PRIMARY SCHOOLS FOOTBALL (L&SPSF)
(affiliated to South London Schools FA)
Lambeth & Southwark Primary Schools Football (L&SPSF) aims to provide organised, competitive football for boys and girls attending primary or junior schools in Lambeth and Southwark. Its objective in doing this is to encourage physical and social development, teamworking , discipline and the ethic of fair play in which winning is important but is not seen as something to be achieved at all costs. L&SPSF seeks to introduce Lambeth and Southwark children to the benefits of playing football and in so doing hopes to help both boys and girls maintain an active lifestyle.
L&SPSF offers out of school hours regular 11 a side league and cup football from September and a Summer one day 7 a side tournament.
For the 2012/13 season schools are organised in three divisions of 11 teams. All LEA primary schools in Lambeth and Southwark are welcome to apply for membership. An annual payment covers ground hire, referees fees, league administration and affiliation to the Inner London Schools FA through South London Schools FA. Any schools wishing to participate or which would like more information should contact Gary Cornforth the League Coordinator by phone or e-mail. See below for details.
The league works with qualified coaches and aims to make available to schools football coaches at all levels of the FA coaching programme. All individuals are qualified in child protection, basic first aid, and football skills and tactics coaching and are all police checked.
From January 2011 we have again had the use of the sports ground in Turney Road now renamed the Dulwich Sports Ground. Formerly run by the London South Bank University this 22 acre cricket, rugby and football ground is now managed by the Southwark Community Sports Trust of which Lambeth & Southwark Primary Schools Football is a founder member. http://www.dulwichsportsground.com
For 2011/12 we are therefore in the fortunate position of having the use of both the Rosendale Playing Fields and the Dulwich Sports Ground. http://www.dulwichsportsground.com
