Cup Competitions

For all end of season cup competitions, 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 2022 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. The groups will not be split by geography. 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.

Junior Standings and Results are not shown on the website and only kept for internal grading purposes. Junior Fixtures will be available to view through the results/fixtures page on the website.
