Welcome to the official website of the

Brighton Worthing & District Football League 


The Brighton, Worthing and District Football League is looking to build on another successful season by inviting new clubs and teams to apply to join us for an exciting 2018/19 season ahead.


We believe we offer a competitive and well-run football league that covers the areas of Brighton, Hove, Worthing, Southwick and Shoreham..


We have a number of divisions offering sides of all abilities the chance to take to the field on a Saturday afternoon. There is a great network of clubs and referees within our League along with a strong committee of individuals that work tirelessly to support the running of this League in a smooth fashion.


For an application form and further details please contact e-mail Ray Therin  or Telephone 01273 671570


The Brighton, Worthing & District Football League was formed in 2015. The league is run by a committee of players, ex-players, officials and volunteers for the benefit and enjoyment of players who are looking to play “Grassroots” Football in Brighton, Hove and Worthing. The league is at the forefront of the latest technologies with the administration of the league to make it easier for reporting and league and club management. Currently there are 3 leagues with a total of 33 teams and the league is affiliated to the Sussex County Football Association. 


The League is currently looking for a new sponsor so if any company is interested

in building a long and successful partnership with us please contact in the first instance.

The league are currently in the process of updating and revamping the Twitter and Facebook in order to continue to provide the clubs with news and useful information as well as being social media platforms for clubs to get involved with. If you have any suggestions please contact Tony Woods 





Parking in Preston Park (Brighton) 


This is becoming an issue again. Especially at weekends when cars are driven down Lime Tree Walk (that’s the internal road running into the park from the north east car park) and parking there, or even driven across the grass from the A23 and parking under the trees. This is not good for the trees’ roots which can become compacted. And it’s potentially dangerous for park users of course, particularly little ones. Our committee has asked the Preston Park councillors for their help in pressing for rigorous parking enforcement at weekends to discourage this. The councillors were quick to respond to this - thank you - and there should now be effective enforcement. Let us know if it’s any better please.


The Brighton League will not be using Bevendean Park until major repairs have been carried out on the playing surface at this present time the ground is dangerous for players and match officials 


Some clubs are reporting a last 10-minute panic with no referee at the game with kick off 10 minutes away. The Referee’s Secretary has asked for referees to be at the game at least 30 minutes before kick off to check the pitch condition given the recent and future weather and the nets and to talk with both managers and linesmen.



THE BWDFL fully endorses the FA Respect Campaign so would like to see all teams doing the RESPECT handshake with the opposition before the game commences.



It is a league requirement to complete a BWDFL team sheet and to hand to the referee no later than 15 minutes before kick-off. If you need to get some more forms they are available from the fixtures secretary at the league.



The League are very keen to get clubs involved with the weekly newsletter so if you know of an interesting story about a player or a team or anything football related the League would like to include it in the weekly newsletter and updates. We ask you to circulate the newsletter to your players and supply Tony Woods with any stories.



The Brighton & Hove League (Formed 1903) and the Hove District League (Formed 1908) were amalgamated in 1919 to form the
