Latest News


The league are funding a Basic First Aid Course for member clubs. We have courses arranged with both the Wiltshire FA and Somerset FA. The course either lasts 6 hours or 9 hours on depending whether candidates already have the 1st For Sport First Aid Qualification.

The FA Basic First Aid for Sport course is a foundation sports first aid course and the recommended minimum qualification for any person providing pitchside support of sports activities.

The course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of:

  • General duties and responsibilities of a sports first aider
  • Common football/ sports injuries
  • Basic knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to recognise and differentiate major from minor injury
  • Ability to administer basic first aid to a casualty engaged in sports activity

Anyone interested in attending either of these courses should contact General Secretary, Mark Edmonds
