Lichfield and Burntwood footballers urged to sign up for small-sided leagues

Footballers are being given the chance to work off their festive excess by joining leagues in Lichfield and Burntwood.

Leisure Leagues run small-sided competitions at King Edward VI Leisure Centre, Burntwood Leisure Centre and Erasmus Darwin Academy in Chasetown.

The company’s senior manager Chris Rowntree said: “There is no doubt that many people will have spent the festive period over-indulging on turkey and maybe a drink or two, and it is unlikely this was balanced out by a few laps round the park, so we suggest they achieve their new year fitness goals in an enjoyable way by playing football.”

The Burntwood leagues take place on Sunday and Monday nights at Burntwood Leisure Centre and Thursdays st Chasetown Sports College. The Lichfield competitions takes place on Sundays and Mondays.

Teams interested in joining a local league can call 0845 230 2340 or register online at
