Leyland Albion Under 12 Red
This coming season (2023/24) the team will be taking part in the Central Lancs Junior Football League, this is the first season playing in a league format with points at stake. All league games are played on Sundays from the first week in September through till May. In keeping with FA guidelines no results, scores or match reports for U11's will be published on this or any other website or social media.
The format for junior football at under 12's is 9 a side, playing time will be determined on a few aspects, including attitude and effort. These are based on the clubs players Code of Conduct. A team ethic is very important to be built in any team and each player should be playing for the team, as they will win, lose and draw as a team - this has proven to give the team a real sense of achievement and togetherness.
Quite often during winter the pitches are waterlogged or frozen and are unfit to play. When this happens we will try to arrange training or friendlies on a local 3G pitch. This enables every child to continue playing all year round. As this is a team booking and not a club booking, the hire of the pitch is not covered by your annual subscription but is payable separately.
Note to new parents of potentially unsigned players (training only):
We encourage any player (of the correct age) to come to training as opportunities to be signed-on at a Leyland Albion team can arise throughout the season, where required.
During the season any unsigned players will be included in any/all team outings. Additional matches are usually arranged during winter (either indoor or on all-weather 3G pitches), when there are no schedule league games and all the way through the summer months too to try out what has been practiced in training.
John Donohoe & Pete Wilson are the coaches of this under 12 team. As with all coaches, both are fully FA trained and hold the relevant DBS, Safeguarding and 1st Aid certifications.
This U12 team are currently sponsored by Oakwell Garage. Thier attention to detail and customer care has resulted in Oakwell being awarded the Best Independent Garage in the North West of England 2014.
