YOU'RE NEVER TOO YOUNG TO PLAY FOOTBALL

There are a number of leagues, cups and initiatives open to young male footballers across the county, and the AFA is proud to provide young players with opportunities to socialise and progress whilst playing the sport they love.

From small-sided football, such as Mini Soccer for young children taking their first steps in the game, to the more traditional 11 v 11 format of the game, there is no shortage of opportunities for you to get involved.

For more information on youth football, please contact our development team on FootballDevelopment@Amateur-FA.com

                                           
                                            AFA Representative Football


The AFA also run Under-16, Under-18 and Senior representative teams.


The aim of Representative Football is to offer young footballers who are not under professional contracts the opportunity to play team football and provide them with a platform to be spotted by professional and semi-professional clubs.

The Under-16 and Under-18 sides play in the South-East Counties Youth Championship (SECYC), with the Under-18s also taking part in the FA County Youth Cup (FACYC).

The Senior team play a number of fixtures, both against traditional rivals and also enters the Southern Counties Cup (SCC), which is played in a round-robin league format.

If you’re keen to start playing football competitively, then please contact Bob Leeds on Bob.Leeds@Amateur-FA.com or 020 8733 2613 #7 and he will be happy to point you in the right direction.
