League description:
The J4GL. Jumpers For Goalposts. Marvellous. Always top rated. What football used to be like.

The J4GL is a VIP only league with two games a week plus a cup game.

League games: Wednesday & Saturday
Cup games: Monday
KO Time: 13:00 (UK Time)

This league is a fun, active, welcoming league that is ideal for beginners and experienced managers alike. It is probably why the J4GL has been the #1 Ranked League on Xpert Eleven on so many occasions that we've lost count and it is always among the top few. There are no entry restrictions in the J4GL, other than VIP.

The J4GL is also a serious challenge. A season currently consists of 18 league games and up to 10 cup games, depending on how successful you are. That's potentially 28 games in a little over 10 weeks.

Such a busy season represents a different type of challenge compared to most leagues. Management of form, suspensions and injuries can be quite a challenge. Sometimes the J4GL is not for the faint hearted!

This is a league where you can have fun, get involved as much or as little as you like or simply sit back and manage your team.

All members are asked to be respectful to each other and use appropriate language. Abuse of any kind and unnecessary bad language will not be tolerated. Any indiscretions will be quickly dealt with.

The Admin is regularly on line and is backed up by some excellent assistants. Any questions and queries are dealt with quickly and efficiently.

If there are no teams in the Job Centre then please email the Admin and we'll see what we can do.


We have a high standard of Press Releases here in the J4GL and we'd like to keep it that way. Press Releases are not compulsory but any Press Releases which are published must be original, relevant to your team and contain team specific matters. PRs must not be auto generated nor copied from either previous Press Releases for your team here nor from your teams in other leagues nor copied from system messages. Offending PRs will be removed.



There are 10 teams to each division which are arranged in six tiers.

Tier 1: The Grum Premiership (4 relegated)
Tier 2: Heppenstall Championship A & Glasser Championship B (2 promoted, 4 relegated)
Tier 3: Division 1a, b, c & d (2 promoted, 4 relegated)
Tier 4: Division 2a, b, c & d (4 promoted, 4 relegated)
Tier 5: Division 3a, b, c & d (4 promoted, 4 relegated)
Tier 6: Division 4a, b, c & d (4 promoted)


The J4GL Cup consists of eight rounds with the first two rounds played over two legs. From the 3rd round onwards games are decided over one game with one side drawn to have home advantage (like the FA Cup). Extra time and penalties will be used if required.



On 16th April 2019, The Marmite League merged into the J4GL.

The Marmite League was established in November 2007 and ran for 62 seasons.


In November 2009 the Jumpers for Goalposts League lost one of their managers. Joshua Heppenstall, 11 years old, tragically died after a short illness. Naturally the whole league was tremendously saddened by his passing. In his honour, and with the kind permission of his family, first the league's cup tournament was renamed the 'Joshua Heppenstall Cup' and now Championship A proudly carries his name.

RIP Joshua.


Early in 2011 the league lost another of its managers, Paul Glasser passing away after a short illness. Following discussions with family and friends, the league's secondary cup competition formerly known as 'The Admins Challenge' was renamed 'The Paul Glasser Trophy' and was first contested in Season 18. That tournament was discontinued after Season 32 and now Championship B proudly carries his name.

RIP Paul


In January 2016 the manager known to the league as 'Grum' passed away. Grum was a league assistant and highly regarded amongst his fellow managers. In February 2016, the J4GL's Premiership division was renamed in his honour.

RIP Grum
