*Pre-season training runs up until late March and sometimes occurs on different nights to In-Season training due to the limited ground availability.

From late January, click here to see more details on Training Times.

 

 

Rules & Results

From U13 upwards the rules are basically the standard laws of the game which apply the world over. The only difference would be the duration of the halves — instead of 45 mins they might only be 25 or 35 mins.  Otherwise it is 11-a-side, full-sized pitch, offside rule applies and paid refs. It’s a big step up from U8-U11.
