U12's go 9-a-side?

Secretary, Manager, Player, Parents/Carers & Spectators

Following on from various FA Workshops, Consultancy Meetings and talking with the majority of the current U11 Managers, it is the Slough Soccer Combinations intention to play U12’s 9-a-side from season 2012/13 as well as the U11’s.

This is currently being ratified by the FA Board for the end of this season and will therefore be at the Leagues discretion for season 2012/2013, but mandatory for 2013/2014.

As a competition we are aware this might create some issues for Member Clubs, but as a Committee working with said Clubs we believe that implementing the proposed FA Directive now rather than the season after will be to all parties benefit.

If you require any further clarification or have any points you wish the League to consider please do not hesitate to contact the League via the feedback section on
