Welcome to the SPSFA 2018/19 season!

Welcome to the SPSFA (Southport Primary School Football Association) website, designed and created by Nick Dempster (Norwood Primary School). This is the home for all results for league and cup games for all 27 teams that represent every Primary School in the Southport area.

Other format of games (one game on one night) will be played of 40 minutes duration (20 minutes each way)

Deciding the Outcome

The maximum score reported is 9-0 as goal difference will not be used to determine the winners of leagues. Leagues are decided by points and then the aggregate score between the tied teams.

If the teams are still tied, the League may be decided by play-off at a neutral venue with a neutral referee if both teams agree.

Any team not fulfilling their fixtures on the specified days  will have their invitation to take part in the further leagues withdrawn
