  • 2014 Fixtures announced soon

    Following the withdrawal early in the season of Brighton Bandits, the plans for the season have been revisited and we’ll be returning to a standard schedule for our nine team league of both home and away fixtures against each other team.  Dates for the winter/spring have been sent to each club for review and will be published ASAP.

  • LUL Backs the Paddy Power and Stonewall Rainbow Laces Campaign

    This weekend LUL teams will join the Paddy Power and Stonewall  ‘Right Behind Gay Footballers’ campaign that’s sweeping the nation. Rainbow coloured boot laces are being sent to teams to wear during their fixtures on Sunday.
    At the time of writing players including Joey Barton and teams including Everton, QPR and Leyton Orient were participating, with Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal still in discussions.
    The impact of this national campaign remains to be seen, but social media is brimming right now with talk about #RBGF including Mr. Stephen Fry and his 6.1 million Twitter followers.  Just as significantly clubs around the country are being forced to decide if they’ll participate or not, furthering internal discussion about homophobia in football.
    For more on the campaign read the article from the cover of Tuesday’s Metro newspaper: http://metro.co.uk/2013/09/16/joey-bartons-aiming-to-put-a-boot-into-footballs-homophobia-4031976/

  • Double figures for Romans Gladiators

    Last season’s league winners began the new campaign in formidable style by putting ten goals past Titans 2 Brewers, who netted a solitary consolation in the game. The defeat will be a bitter pill for 2012/13’s bottom side, having started 2013/14 by chalking up a 2-0 win in their first game on Sunday 25th August against Millennium Falcons. The other Titans team, Titans Food Chain, recorded a narrow 1-0 victory away to Phoenix FC.

    See the fixtures page for the full autumn schedule.

  • 2013/14 season fixtures announced

    The first game of the new London Unity League season is on Sunday 25th August, with Titans 2 Brewers hosting Millennium Falcons. There are two games on Sunday 1st September: Romans Gladiators v Titans 2 Brewers and Phoenix FC v Titans Food Chain.

    There are 10 teams in the league this season, and teams will play each other once to decide an autumn league champion. Then the league will divide into two groups of five to play eight more games, home and away. These will decide the winners of the Premiership and the Championship. A team in the bottom half at Christmas still has a chance of summer silverware!
