Check out all the 2016 schedules, scores and information on the NUDL2 sheet.
The proposed dates for the league are shown below (all matches are planned to be on a Tuesday). These have been chosen to tie in with when the University terms are open so we hope more students will be able to play. We appreciate that some players will have exams during this period but matches only take place on one evening per week, and players are not required to attend every week (your availability will be an option on the registration form).

All matches will take place on the grass field at Walker Technology College (Waverdale Ave, NE6 4LA). This is just a 15 minute walk from the Walkergate Metro Station. If you're coming by car there is plenty of parking. You can click on the images below to enlarge the maps.
There WILL be a charge to take part in the Draft League. This will be £3 per week, though if you want to pay it all upfront that is just fine (£18). Payment details can be provided if you wish to pay via bank transfer. Payments on the night must be paid IN ADVANCE of playing.
The draft league starts at Draft Night. All the players will get together for some drinks and there will be a series of rounds in which the team captains will choose players. Everyone will get picked, and by the end of the evening we'll know the make up of each of our league teams!
Draft Night this year will take place in the upstairs room at The Telegraph (NE1 3NY). This is nice and close to central station so easy to get to by Metro and National Rail. There is limited on street parking nearby, or car parks a short walk away.
The night starts at 8pm with the draft kicking off around 9pm. It should only take an hour to draw all the players. You'll be able to get drinks from the upstairs bar so no need to miss any of the action whilst going on a beer run!
Info to follow...
The premise behind the fantasy league is simple. Teams are selected by choosing one player from each round of the draft. That is then your team for the league season. There are no changes after you submit your team and no transfers so choose wisely!
Each week, every player can earn points by scoring goals, throwing assists or getting Ds. Your team score will be the total scores of all of your players added together.
You will be asked to pay £2 to enter the Fantasy League, but if you are the winning team you can win the whole pot of money!
