Leyland Albion Under 10 Red
This coming season (2020/21) the team will be taking part in the Mid Lancs Colts Junior Football League. The league is played on a friendly basis with no scores recorded or points awarded or league tables in line with FA regulations. 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 U10's will be published on this or any other website or social media.
The format for mini soccer at under 10's is 7 a side, playing time will be given on an equal basis, but will also be determined on a couple of further aspects; 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.
The matches will be 25 minutes each way and will utilise a "roll on roll off" substitute system. Some players may play more than others, however this is not due to ability or form but more importantly by attitude and behaviour in training, pre-match warm ups and the actual game itself.
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.
This really exciting team is managed by Mick & Andy, they are hugely motivated and it shows in the way this young team play. They play together and also with great football.
These Under 10's are currently sponsored by J J O'Grady Civil Engineering. They have kindly agreed to sponsor this team and help provide them with grassroots memories for life.
