Under 11 Blues

Dan Crofts

Our Under 11’s Blues are currently in the Mid Lancs Colts Friendly League. All friendly games are played on Saturday mornings. Our home games are played at our Derian House Playing Field, Chorley with a 10:00am 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 7 a side, we will take 10 or 12 players to each League games with each selected child looking at playing at least half a game (fitness and attitude permitting). The games are 20 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.
