The Bradford Sunday Alliance League are working towards Charter Standard status.

To achieve this, 60 per cent of clubs need to achieve Charter Standard recognition. Clubs who have achieved this so far include Wyke Wanderers, Sandy Lane, Stanningley Albion and Dudley Hill Rangers.

Clubs must meet certain standards, like having fully audited bank accounts and a recognised first aider at matches. They will then receive accreditation from the Football Association and £100 worth of Nike footballs.

All Sunday Alliance clubs have received the documentation required from the FA and the first of several first aid courses for clubs was held in Bradford last night.

There are also plans to start an Under-21 League next season and all clubs in the area are invited to apply.

The matches will be played on 3g pitches, possibly on Sundays.
