Under 13 Blue


John Docherty

Our current Under 12 Blue team are in the Central Lancs. Leagues this season. All games are played on Sunday mornings. Our games are played at our Buckshaw Bernabeu pitch with a 10, 11 or 12 am kick off. Away games are played at the opponent’s home venue. The League season runs from the first weekend in September to the first weekend in May. Fixtures are usually published by the League 2 weeks prior to the start of each month.

Our selection policy for mini soccer is 9 a side, we will take 10 or 11  players to each League games with each selected child looking at playing at least half a game (fitness and attitude permitting). The games are 30 minutes each way and utilise a “roll on, roll off” substitute system. Some players will naturally play more than others; however this will be decided not only by ability, form and fitness, but more importantly by attitude and behaviour in training, pre match warm up and the actual game itself.
