Our current Under 12 Whites team is in the Central Lancs Ospreys League. Training is at Derian Pitches on Friday evenings between 6pm and 7.30pm. All home games are played on Sunday mornings, kicking off at 10am. Our home games are played at our Buckshaw Bernabéu pitch, Buckshaw Village. 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. There is a break for league matches in December and January. Fixtures are usually published by the League two weeks prior to the start of each month.
We play 9 a side and take 11 or 13 players to each League games with each selected child looking at playing at least half a game (fitness and attitude permitting). We have scheduled rest weeks for each player, these are communicated at least four weeks prior to the match. 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 position and fitness, but also training attendance, attitude and behaviour in training, pre-match warm up and the actual game itself.
