Senior team encompass all teams over 18. NWSF run competitions for U18s, U21s, 15 divisions of All Age, 6 divisions of Over 35, and 5 divisions of Over 45. NER have teams all the age categories, however not in every division.
We are primarily focussed on the social aspects of sport, enjoying the physical exercise and the post game refreshments. We have on occasions won a division!
The games are 45 minutes per half with 11 players on the field. Unlimited interchange is allowed and we generally register about 20 players per team. Games are usually played on Saturday afternoons with some Sunday matches.
Training is optional for these teams and many of our teams train in a co-operative session. As not everyone within a team may be able to make training every week, the co-operative format allows for sufficient numbers of players to make a training session viable.
During the summer months, NER runs a fitness and training program for any Over35 players (including Over 45 players) that want to keep up their fitness through the off-season.
