Hi,

 

I'm new to the island and I'm looking for information on local football, leagues, events, etc. I've looked around the internet and from what I can figure out, there's the Shetland FA and the Work League. First off, what are the levels of these leagues? What competitions do they take part in and where are these games played?

 

I was also wondering if there were any amateur leagues, nothing too serious, along the lines of "Sunday league". I've found nothing when looking online, so I'm losing hope, but maybe there's something that just doesn't have an online presence yet (I know that's unlikely in this day and age!).

 

Thanks in advance!

The works league started off as a non serious competition, but as with all things some take it more serious than others. The user name Penfold shoulder able to give you more info.
