A NEW website is dedicated to local league football.
It’s called jumpers4goals and has been launched by Dan Stott.
It’s all about football at grass-roots level and exists to support those who play football solely for the love of the game, and for those that dedicate their valuable time to ensure leagues and clubs continue to exist.
Stott said: “Pub football, Sunday league soccer, local football or whatever you want to call it has been around since the creation of the game.
“However, the world is changing and there are many more options available.
“Nowadays you can play football against somebody at the opposite end of the world on the internet, then tell all your friends about it on social network sites without ever leaving your living room.
“The jumpers4goals mission is to help local league football thrive by providing an online social network to help attract new people to the game and keep those involved engaged and motivated.”
The venture also has mobile phone versions and will be attached to the Examiner website.
Stott added: “Put simply, this is a website where users can log on and interact with other users all about their league football, their division, their club and their football community.
“A thriving local football community has many benefits for players and local businesses.
“There have been national studies reporting that involvement in football at all levels and ages has a positive economic impact in the country.”
