"COUNTY' or 'DISTRICT' ??


We often get queries from parents about how their child can go to a trial for a 'County' team. These queries are often about younger players. Please note that County teams are for U16 and U18 players only.

Younger players can represent their District - which District this is depends where the school is located. 

This website does NOT carry information about District affairs - however you can find the details for each District's officers here.

SAFEGUARDING

If you have any concerns regrding the Safeguarding of young people in football, please do not hesitate to contact our Child Welfare Officer, Steve Swinyard

Trained staff will offer support, advice and guidance, and will refer cases on to the police or other agencies as appropriate, such as if a child is in immediate danger.
