UNDER 9s


Welcome to the under 9s section of the YEL website. From here you will be able to view the U9s football teams. There will also be useful information and key dates to keep track of.

IT’S NOW 7 A SIDE!

Matches are still friendlies however there are two competitive mini leagues – during the Winter & Spring seasons – with champions and runners-up trophies. There’s also a 16 team cup competition with different ability based cups so everyone stands a chance of winning ‘The Cup!’

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Unlike U7s & U8s where players can play in different teams each week, once players reach U9s, they have to be registered to one squad and play in the same team each week.

At this level, EVERY child should be getting equal playing time when the matches are played. This is an FA guideline which every club and team should be putting into practise as this is one of the key ways a child can develop. Have a word with your coach and if this fails speak to your Club Welfare Officer.

Size 3 – these size balls are perfect to allow 8/9 year olds to continue to learn and develop as they are lighter and smaller.

Neither the YEL nor the National FA has a mandatory policy on the wearing of glasses as this is down to the individual clubs and players/parents. However, the guidance/best advice available is for them to wear specific prescription sportswear glasses. The risk is not just to them getting injured through being hit by a ball but also injuring another player through an accidental clash of heads. Speak to your club for their club policy. Cautionary Note: Any officially appointed referee does have the power to insist on the removal of any item (including day to day glasses) that they feel is a danger to the participants in a game. This is very subjective and will vary from referee to referee as to what they deem to be dangerous.
