Essentially the age group that a player joins is determined by his or her date of birth – this also mirrors the school year. The key date is 31st August and the chart below shows which age group applies for next season.
FA rules do permit a child to “Play Up” a year (an under 9 can play for under 10’s) but under no circumstances can a child play for the age group below.
As a club, Calverton MW require that, for any player wishing to play up a year, a consensus of agreement is reached between both age group managers, the childs parents and, of course the child themselves. We always try to consider what is best for the child, taking into account factors such as ability and physical development.
Any further questions can be answered either by age group managers (see the teams section for contact details) or by the Club Secretary Ian Hardwick.
