An FA statement reads: “SLFA in readiness of the Premier League held a meeting today at its Secretariat with all Premier League clubs to confirm the League Board and commence registration.
“The SLFA, in turn, offer them with the following sporting materials: Adidas travelling bag, Balls Bag holder, Medical Kitbag, balls and bibs to all 14 clubs to jump start the process of the league which has been slated to start on April 14, 2017.”
