Welcome to Lancashire Schools' Football Association



As we approach the semi-final stage of our County Cups, please remember Rule 19 concerning officials for semi-final games:

All semi-finals MUST have three suitably qualified officials.

The LSFA will appoint the three officials.

The semi-finalists will share the costs of the three officials.

The Officials for all County Cup Semi-Finals will be appointed by Jack Gardner, the Development Officer for Schools.

Jack's email can be found at the bottom of this page.

When arrangements have been made for the County Cup Semi-Finals, the HOME school MUST inform both Jack and myself about the date, the venue and the kick-off time for the game.

Mike Timberlake, County Secretary, LSFA.


Please read carefully and observe the rules regarding Inter-School Competitions.

Note especially the new addition to Rule 6 concerning players registered with F.A. Licenced Academies etc.
