Morpeth Sunday League
The Morpeth Sunday League was an amateur football league based in Morpeth, Northumberland. It was founded in 1969 and ceased to operate in 2023.
The Morpeth Sunday League was founded in 1969 by a group of local football enthusiasts. The league initially consisted of 10 teams, but it grew over the years to reach a peak of 20 teams in the early 1990s.
The league was played on a Sunday afternoon, and the matches were played at various grounds in the Morpeth area. The league had a cup competition, which was called the Morpeth Sunday League Cup.
The Morpeth Sunday League was a popular league, and it attracted players of all ages and abilities. The league was a great way for people to get involved in football and to meet new people.
The Morpeth Sunday League folded in 2023 due to a lack of teams. Two teams folded at the end of the 2022 season, and another team joined a different league. This left the league with only 17 teams, which was not enough to continue operating.
The folding of the Morpeth Sunday League was a sad loss for the local football community. The league had been a popular fixture for many years, and it had provided a great opportunity for people to get involved in football.
