Stepping Down

Good evening all,


Due to work commitments I am sorry to say I am having to stand down as Longhorn Youth League Secretary after nearly 12 years, I cannot say yet whether this is temporary or permanent, only time will tell, but to assist with the continuity of the League Sharron Willis has agreed to become  interim League Secretary. Can I ask that from now on ALL correspondence to the League goes to Sharron, sorry, but any emails sent to me will not receive a reply. The League Committee has agreed to me remaining as a Committee member, but again this will depend on availability.


I want to thank everyone for their support, assistance & patience shown over my period as League Secretary and hope everyone continues their efforts to keep making this league one of the most successful in the north. I have genuinely enjoyed my time as League sec and will continue to help in any way I can.


All the best,


Jim McCracken

Ex longhorn Youth League Secretary.

7v7 to 9v9 transition

 Cumberland FA will be delivering a ‘Transition’ CPD event,on Monday 17th August, 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Sheepmount, Carlisle. This event is aimed at supporting coaches and teams who are transitioning from the 7v7 format to 9v9 with a focus on:

·         Squad and match day management

·         Formations

·         Laws of the Game (Offside)

·         Transition - 7v7 tom 9v9

 The event will provide both a theory and practical element to support all coaches and will be delivered by David Morris who is the new County Coach Developer. David has recently been employed by The FA as a County Coach Developer with the primary aim to support Cumberland FA, Westmorland FA and the Isle of Man FA in supporting and delivering County FA’s coach education and CPD programmes.

 This event is open to all coaches who wish to attend but I would encourage those coaches who are involved with teams who are moving from 7v7 to 9v9. All coaches who would like to attend this CPD event can book online via the link below:
