FA Youth Development Review

By Charles East

REVISED ARTICLE: September 2013 - Changes to various aspects of youth football will start to be phased in on a league by league basis.

Every year there are some changes to the rules of football. But starting September 2103 the FA will be phasing in a number of substantial changes. Please note that each league will decide on the timing of their changes. (The Saywell International (Arun and Chichester) Youth League that our youth teams play in have yet to decide on their timetable, so watch this space).

The changes vary (depending on the age groups) but include:

* smaller pitches
* smaller teams
* smaller goals
* child friendly competition

For full details of these changes, please read the FA link below:
