League to be awarded FA Charter Standard League status
We are pleased to announce that the league has been informed that we will shortly be awarded the FA Charter Standard League status. The FA Charter Standard League status is an accreditation that sets an operational benchmark for FA sanctioned leagues.
Change of league name to reflect membership area
As the RDYFL approaches its 70th year the management committee are planning a number of changes to take the league forward........... the first of which, by a unanimous committee vote, is to change the league's name to :
'North Derbyshire Youth Football League' (NDYFL) for the 2017/18 season going forward.
This is to more closely reflect the area and teams that the league now covers. The proposed changes will be put to the league members at the AGM - 20th July 2017.
