Under 12 Green

Lee Bottomley

Our current Under 11 Green team are in the Mid Lancs Colts Friendly Leagues this season. All friendly games are played on Sunday mornings. Our games are played at our Derian House Pitches in Chorley 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 7 a side, we will take 8 or 9 players to each League games with each selected child looking at playing at least half a game (fitness and attitude permitting). The games are 25 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.
