Important information around U6s playing football.
After being made aware of a number of posts on social media, we believe it is a good time to remind everyone about the rule concerning the youngest age that children can play in organised matches.
The FA rule on this is really clear, and is contained within the Standard Code Of Rules – Youth (SCORY)
Children Under 6 Years Old
‘A child who has not attained the age of six shall not play, and shall not be permitted or encouraged to play, in a match of any kind’
Clubs need to remember this when anyone within their club is advertising on social media pages for friendlies of tournaments involving Under 6 teams.
If you require more information please contact Tim Jones, Football Development Officer – Youth Football on firstname.lastname@example.org.
