It is with deep regret that we announce that Frank Hunt passed away on the morning of 8 October.
This man was a true gentleman and one of the founders of the Nottinghamshire Senior League. Frank put countless hours and commitment in to Nottinghamshire grassroots football over many many years, to get where we are today as a league, and was always first to welcome you at Wollaton FC.
This man will be sadly missed by so many, not just in football, but by all that knew him and our thoughts go out to all the family.
Details of the funeral will be announced when known.
As a mark of respect, and a sign of our appreciation for this amazing man and friend, all NSL fixtures this weekend will hold a minute's applause before kick off.
Euro Soccer Company are once more delighted to be partnering with the Samba Nottinghamshire Senior League:
- Will Stapleford reign supreme again in the Prem?
- Can Streeter and Bullock's Beeston get promotion from Division 1?
- How will the new sides fare in Division 2?
There's plenty of questions and we'll soon have some of the answers!
Wishing all 51 sides the very best of luck and most importantly we hope you enjoy your football!
There are two league games kicking off tonight in the Premier Division as Woodthorpe Park Rangers make their top flight bow by hosting Keyworth United, while Eastwood CFC Development take on AFC Dunkirk. In Division 2, two of the new teams go head to head as Ravenshead Reds entertain Asha.
So, if you're at a loose end - get yourself down!

The Samba Nottinghamshire Senior League, supported by Euro Soccer Company, in conjunction with the Nottingham, Mansfield and Newark Referees Societies, will be inviting club secretaries, managers, and any other club representatives for training on the recent law amendments.
It is free of charge at the following times and venues:
15 August, 7.30pm at Basford United, Greenwich Aveue
19 August, 7.45pm at Collingham FC, Station Road
Could clubs please let Darrell Parkes (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if they are planning to attend.
Clubs have previously raised the point that there is no training offered in understanding the laws of association football, hopefully these events can clarify how the new laws will be interpreted.
The league looks forward to seeing as many clubs as possible.
Saturday 18 May 2019, Greenwich Avenue, Basford.

For the past few seasons there has been some uncertainty about the appropriate number of teams in Step 7 divisions. The Samba Nottinghamshire Senior League, supported by Euro Soccer Company, are delighted to announce that we have had written confirmation from The FA that our Premier Division can continue to operate with 18 teams for 2019/20.
This is a massive boost to our league and reward for all the committee members who work tirelessly to maintain and improve standards. It’s also a reward to our clubs for striving to improve and gives them a pathway to Step 6.
The league would like to thank the Nottinghamshire FA for their advice and help with developing relationships at a national level. This news moves us closer to achieving both our ambitions and is an acknowledgement from The FA that we are on the right track.
