Note 1: Sportpark Nieuw Vreelust was constructed in the early 1960s to give professional league club Sparta a youth academy close to its stadium, Het Kasteel. Eventually, the academy as well as Sparta's non-league branch were moved to a completely new ground, Nieuw Terbregge. Nieuw Vreelust, on the other hand, was taken over by several non-league clubs (some of them having already played on this location as groundsharers with Sparta).

Note 2: as a result of their comprehensive win in the last game of the regular season, VFC (za) crowned themselves champions of West II's Saturday League 4E.
