If you’ve seen those teams in their glorious Ballers ‘sponsored’ shirts and wondered what you have to do to get them, there’s two ways. Firstly, be with us long enough that you become due a set from us, or order them through us!

We’ve got plenty of styles for you to choose from, and we make no money from these shirts. We literally charge what it costs for us to buy the shirts and get them printed.

The price of each shirt includes your team badge (which our print company will design for you to sign off if you don’t already have one) and SK Ballers branding

Joma Combi Shirts


Long sleeved shirts are available in the Combi style in green, yellow, navy, black or royal, if goalkeepers want a long sleeved shirt in a different colour.

Joma Championship VI Shirts


Joma Winner II Shirts


Joma Europa V Shirts


Joma Pisa II Shirts


Joma Tiger IV Shirts


For ALL shirts (regardless of style), you can add a number for £5, or a name AND number for £7.50.

If you want to order shirts from us, all orders need paying for before we place the order. The turn around on a set of shirts from time of order at the minute is approx 3 weeks.

If you’ve got any questions about any of the above, or want to place an order, get in touch.


Our brand new Sunday league kicked off this week, but as I’ve been having another little tinker I figured I best let you know how we’re set up for the new season…

With having to try and cram 28 teams in, we’ve gone with the usual 4 divisions, with the top division and bottom division being made up of 6 teams, and the two middle divisions made up of 8.

The divisions of 6 will be a straight forward play each other twice affair, while the divisions of 8 will involve each team playing each other once, then the top 4 and bottom 4 splitting off for the second round of games. This means that all divisions are still made up of 10 games in the season.

The reason why I’ve decided to do it this way this time, where previously the bottom division was the one that had 8 teams, is that it means that in the two divisions of 8, when we do the split the teams in the bottom half still have something to play for, namely avoiding relegation!

Hope that all makes sense, if there’s any questions, feel free to ask!


We’ve got two new leagues starting before the end of February, so if you’re looking to get yourselves signed up, here’s what we can do…


Our new Tuesday league season starts NEXT WEEK, 31st January. We currently have just ONE SPACE AVAILABLE, so if you’re keen to get going, this could be your best bet. Tuesday league games kick off at either 8pm or 9pm each week.


Our biggest league night is currently scheduled to start a new season on 26th February. Our current league is full at 26 teams, but for the new season we could look to extend our capacity to 30 teams. We have a couple of former teams who are looking to get back into, which (if our maths are correct) means we are looking at having TWO SPACES AVAILABLE. Games kick off between 5pm and 8.40pm, and we can try and accommodate any teams who struggle for the earlier or later games. We also try to be flexible around issues that specifically affect Sunday evenings, including United and City games.

All of our Reddish league games are 50 mins long, priced at £5 per player, per game.

So there goes another year…

Into 2023 we go, so it’s time to let you know about some exciting new things we’ve got coming up!

But first, a quick personal one. As we hit 2023, with a now mobile 15 month old boy in the house, and a wife who now has to work Fridays, it’s worth noting that you may struggle to get a reply off me throughout the day on a Friday as I try and find ways to keep him entertained. We don’t have leagues that day, so nothing should be particularly urgent, but this is a change in my own circumstances that I think teams need to be aware of. I was able to run the business without any real restrictions on my time for the first 5 years, but as things stand I’m putting a lot of scope on doing the majority of my admin work on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, as they are the days when Charlie is in nursery. I’m aware that teams who are cancelling games might not be getting a response from me, and that I’ve become a lot slower at replying to teams sometimes, for which I apologise. Given how much I’m relying on teams replying to me to allow me to run my business smoothly, I’m aware of the hypocrisy!

In exciting news, we should be just days away from the initial launch of our new website! In fact, this should be the final article we post on the website in it’s current form. We’ve got big plans for the website going forward, but we’ll take it one step at a time.

We will be continuing to catch up with our offer of free shirts to reward team loyalty at the rate of two teams a month, so if you’ve been playing a little while keep your eye on our updates on our socials to find out when you’re due (we may switch that to the new website when it’s launched).

We may even look at our options for advancing leagues into other areas of Stockport in 2023 if the website plays it’s part in automating some of the administration that takes up a fair amount of our time.

Who knows where we’ll be this time in 12 months…

And of course, if you don’t currently play in one of our leagues and you want to get involved, or if you do currently play but would like to play more, get in touch and lets see what we can do.

As always, thanks to all of you who have taken part in our leagues over the last 12 months, and all the best for 2023!


Woodley Thursday Update

Hi guys, a quick update on how the current Thursday league is looking.

Generally, it hasn’t been great! Holidays, the return of the 11’s season, injuries, illness etc have meant that most teams have had spells this season where they have struggled to field a side. No one’s fault, just one of them things.

We’ve also had 6 teams drop out since the start of the season, and although we have teams lined up to come back in in the near future, I’m desperate to get this season finished as soon as possible. From my point of view, going to three divisions has been a mistake. Divisions of 6 are more affected by teams dropping out and cancelling, and it means we have fewer options for getting league fixtures on when teams cancel, so we will be returning to two bigger divisions for the new season. Three divisions of 6 does have it’s place, but this wasn’t the right time.

Over these next few weeks we’d appreciate as much patience as possible from our teams. Once the titles are decided in each division we will end the season and get the new one started. Obviously we still have our pitch fees to pay (the agreement with Life Leisure is that if we have any games on we have to pay our pitch costs in full), so we’d appreciate teams taking up the option of a friendly on the weeks where we can’t get you a league game

Here’s a quick breakdown of how the individual leagues are currently looking.


In the last few weeks, Inter Yanan have dropped out, leaving us with 5 teams. Unfortunately, one team had played them twice, a few teams had played them once, and one team hadn’t played them at all. This means it would be unfair on those teams who’ve played them to give the other teams a forfeit win, so we will remove the results for those games and the season will be an 8 game season.


GX FC dropped out early on in the season and were replaced, Surf On Turf dropped out a few weeks ago and TNF have dropped out this week. We do have some teams due to return (GX FC being one), but the title looks like it is pretty much decided so the games that get played in the next few weeks might not make that much difference to the final league table.

League One

We had a team drop out before the season started, and The Fellas dropped out without playing a game. Stockport Athletic took one of the spaces, but they also dropped out last week. CS FC have moved over from the Wednesday league this week, but as with the Championship, it looks likely that the title will be decided in the next couple of weeks.

Again, thanks for your patience in recent weeks, it’s not been ideal. We will hopefully have the new season starting as soon as possible, probably early October.


It’s a brave headline, as spaces are pretty limited, but if you’re looking at getting involved in a 6-a-side league in the near future, here’s where we can fit you in!


Championship: One Space

League Two: One Space


New league starts 6th September – Limited spaces…


One space available – new season starts 24th August!


League One – One Space

And that’s your lot! For details or to register your team, call or text 07809252658, email skballers@hotmail.com, or message is through any of our social media pages!


So, we were extremely pleased to be able to be able to return to 4 divisions for the start of the new Sunday league which kicks off this weekend, and we know a lot of the new teams are reliable as they have been playing friendlies for weeks. Happy days!

But then more teams kept getting in touch wanting to get involved for the new season, so at the end of the current season we were left with 26 teams for 24 slots, and in the last couple of days we’ve had a couple more enquire about joining up. We find it very hard to say no to people, so here’s the plan…

We are still going to have 4 divisions. The top two divisions will be made up of 6 teams playing each other twice (nice and straightforward). The bottom two divisions will be made up of 8 teams. Each team will play each other once, then the top 4 and bottom 4 will be split with the teams in each half playing each other a second time. Both formats make it a 10 week season. We know we will have to add weeks on for games missed, especially as April contains City v Liverpool at 4.30pm on Sunday April 10th and Easter Sunday on 17th April.

As we also don’t want to have to start games at 4.30pm or 9pm, we are having a play with the kick off times, and this is very important. Where we have previously fit a 50 minute game into an hour long slot, we are now going to be fitting them into a 55 minute slot. This means there is NO SCOPE FOR GAMES RUNNING OVER IF TEAMS ARE LATE. If your game kicks off late it will still need to finish by the time of the kick off time of the next game.

The new kick off times are going to be as follows:

5pm, 5:55pm, 6:50pm, 7:45pm and 8:40pm

Once your game is done, please vacate the pitch as quickly as you can so the next game can get kicked off, out of respect to the other teams.

We are so grateful to be having to work out a problem of this nature. To have too many teams is something we could only have dreamed of, and though we got to 5 divisions last summer we know a lot of that was down to the release from lock down meaning everyone wanted to play. To get back to those team numbers is a vindication for the work we put in, and in no small part an indication of the quality of our referees, as teams wouldn’t stick around if our refs weren’t up to scratch!

We can’t wait to get going for the new season. Let’s have a good one!


Before the end of the year 4 of our leagues will be starting fresh new seasons. If you want to be a part of our leagues come the start of 2022, don’t assume the spaces will be there if you choose to wait!

We’ll be calling time on our leagues for the year in the middle of December, so we won’t be expecting anyone to put a team out in the direct run up to Christmas, or between Christmas and New Year. After the last 18 months we’ve all had to go through, we; get the feeling a lot of people will be wanting to let off some steam over this festive period!

So, in date order, here are when our new leagues will be restarting and what spaces we have…



A couple of recent drop outs have meant that we have immediate availability to get any new teams started with friendlies from as soon as the 16th November. Numbers will dictate whether we remain at two divisions, or go for one big division for the new season when it kicks off.



Barring any late drop outs, anyone wanting to join the Woodley Wednesday league will be having to go on our waiting list for a spot. Sorry… If this is the league that best suits you, don’t let it put you off getting in touch for details.



Our ever popular and biggest league night will be starting a new season in early December, and with pitch space not a massive issue we always have the option of adding more teams in at the start of any new season. If we were to keep with the current 4 division format, we currently have ONE SPACE AVAILABLE. This also means that options are there for any new teams wanting to start straightaway to come in and play a couple of weeks of friendlies to get themselves up to speed…



The Monday league will remain at two divisions for the start of the new season, just before our Christmas break. Chances are you’ll play one game then won’t be back until the new year! Friendlies are an option for any new teams over the next few weeks as we currently have a space available. Or if you fancy your teams chances you can take up a slot in the top division for some competitive action…

All league games are priced at £5 per player, but game lengths and kick off times vary depending on venue and night.

Both the Wednesday and Thursday league seasons at Stockport Sports Village in Woodley have been a massive success since the latest lock down eased off (remember lock downs?!).

Both leagues are on the brink of finishing, with both nights set to start new leagues in the coming weeks

All Woodley league games are 40 mins in length, priced at £5 per player, per game. Kick off times on both nights are 7, 7.45, 8.30 and 9.15pm on a random rotational basis



Spaces on either night are likely to be extremely limited, so to register your interest get in touch asap!



If we choose to play right through to Christmas week, there’s 8 full weeks worth of fixtures that can be played between now and the festive period. That’s a fair few calories you can shift before the festive excesses kick in! If you’ve been thinking about putting a team together and joining a league, here’s the spaces we currently have in our Reddish leagues:

As a general rule, all of the Reddish leagues are made up of 50 minute games, all priced at £5 per player per game


The Sunday league is our biggest league night, with 4 divisions allowing for the greatest variety of standards that we can offer.

We have ONE SPACE in the top division, but as we approach the end of the season, this is probably the best option a new team would have of securing their space for the new season when it restarts towards the end of the year.

Games kick off between 5.30pm and 8.30pm, but if you might struggle for the earlier or later games we do our best to accommodate


You might need to fancy yourselves if you want to take up the challenge of the Monday league. Our only space is in the top division, which is probably the highest standard we have across our league nights. Again, by signing up now you’re securing your space for the new season which will also start before the end of the year.

Games kick off at either 8pm or 9pm on a random rotational basis


While we currently, on paper have no spaces, we are keen to get back to divisions of 7 for the new season which will start (you’ve guessed it) before the end of the year! Fill in friendly games for teams waiting for a space can be arranged while we wait for an actual league spot.

Games kick off at either 8pm or 9pm on a random rotational basis


Our ‘late night’ Wednesday league is currently full, but without any teams on standby we could find space for a new team at any time.

All games kick off at 9pm, which works well for some teams based on work shifts, and offers a fixed weekly time for their game
