Our current Under 12 Blues team plays is in the Central Lancashire Junior Football League.
All friendly games are played on Sundays between 9am and 2pm both Home and Away with games taking place in the Chorley, Preston and Blackburn areas.
Our home games are played at our Grass Pitch at the Buckshaw Bernabeu, Buckshaw Village.
The League season runs from the first weekend in September to the first weekend in May. Fixtures are usually published by the League 1 week prior to the start of each month. Summer months are filled with training and local football competitions as much as possible.
Our Team play 9v9 at 30 minutes each way and our selection policy for each game looks at a variety of attributes including fitness, attitude & behaviour. The children are monitored for these at our training sessions which take place on a Tuesday evening and a Saturday Morning and also pre and post match and during the match.
We currently have a wide variety of skill levels within our players and our aim is to help the child progressively improve in a wide variety of positions whilst enjoying themselves.
We strongly believe in the children wanting to come and participate in the training and matches and will look to build on the growing philosophy that Astley & Buckshaw JFC has developed since its introduction.
