With Pitchside you can add your own chapter to North London’s prestigious footballing history.

Though a few of their North London neighbours may be more well-known, Wingate and Finchley FC have a long-standing respect in the non-league community. Known for their free-flowing, energetic football and crop of local talent, there’s no better inspiration for your own team’s weekly 10/10 performance.

Remember the early days of small-sided football? Tarmac pitches reducing your knees to bone, slipping as you run to win the ball back after the humiliation of a nutmeg while others clasp hands to mouth at your embarrassment (it’s happened to the best of us).

Wingate’s fresh 3G surface ensure a sweet connection on your shots and gigabytes worth of goals an hour. That nutmeg will look even sweeter (and feel even worse) when you watch the best bits back on our YouTube channel.

We promise fresh footballs and the best FA qualified referees to ensure consistency of our beautiful game every Monday and Tuesday.

Signing up will also get you free entry to Wingate & Finchley FC home games (on the same day as your match), so you can watch how the semi-pros do it while you enjoy a well-earned pie and a pint. You might even pick up some tips for your next game.

In addition to the men’s league at Wingate & Finchley, we also host a similarly-structured women’s league every Tuesday. As England’s Women’s national team announce themselves on the world stage, there’s no better time to get involved in the female game.

Each league will be made up of six/seven teams and you can keep up-to-date from anywhere with online tables and fixture lists. We’ll also have a section for the top scorers, Man of the Match awards and reward the best talent in the league with exclusive prizes.

There’ll also be a Team of the League and Ballon d’Pitchside for the next Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Phil Jones.

Here at Pitchside, we fully believe in our mission to create a safe, friendly and fun environment within local communities, connecting those with a shared love for the beautiful game to the very best leagues across London.
