Senior Mens' Football

Seaforth FC enters the following teams into the Senior Mens’ MWFA competitions:

  • All-age League (AL)
  • Under 21s (U21)
  • Over 35s (O35)
  • Over 45s (O45)

Each team is typically made up of a squad of up to 18 players, with a coach and manager. However, there is not a strict policy on squad numbers, and often a squad of 20 or more players may be preferable. The game is 11 v 11 and is played on a full-size pitch.

Seaforth FC truly hopes you have a enjoyable and exciting season.
