Competition Information - 2023
Season Start Dates:
Season dates will be confirmed in early Q1 2023.
Season breaks will be confirmed in early Q1 2023.
For all end of season cup competitions, there will be outlined regulations that govern these. As a general rule of thumb, there will be NO extra time. If a draw after full time, then the game moves into a penalty shoot-out. (this does not apply to the English Cup and Reta Fitzpatrick Cup).
Junior and Youth Structure
For the 2023 season, Junior Grades will play in groups of 6 teams. Every 5 weeks (one round played) the grades will be shuffled with two teams moving up and two teams moving down in general, though sometimes this may only be one or up to three as appropriate for the teams. Groups may be split by geography which is TBC. This may be different depending on the number of entries at each band.
Youth will generally be split into divisions of 6 teams; play each other once to finish the round, and then the divisions will be regraded to ensure teams are competing in the grade-appropriate for their ability.
We will assess these grades throughout the season and make changes when required to provide appropriate levels of football for all teams.
