"One thing I am very excited about is our new communication platform, ipatter. This is going to make the communication from the league to teams, players and parents alike to a whole new world. You will be updated on all news instantly.
"A criticism of the league in the past, was communication; this is something we are all committed to making a lot better and we think we have found the solution."
Alderton is keen to hear from any potential sponsors for the league which kicks off on the first weekend of September.
"I want to try and get companies to fund refereeing courses for the girls, coaching courses for the girls. At the moment we have so many girls dropping out of football that I want to try and give them a reason to stay in football," he said.
