Representing your County
As a county FA, we select a team of players to represent Nottinghamshire in regional and national competitions.
Representative football is an important part of our remit and it's no small honour to be called up for the team. The squad consists of a selection of players from clubs across Nottinghamshire. The Nottinghamshire FA U18 squad compete in both The FA County Youth Cup and the Midlands Counties Youth Championship.

During the Christmas and New Year break the Under 18’s Boys County youth side played a practice match against West Bridgford Colts Under 18’s at Nottingham’s Forest Road site on the 4G pitch. The game finished as a 2-2 draw and it was a good warm up game (on a very cold night) for our forthcoming Midland Counties Youth Championship game.
The County FA’s Under 18’s boy’s Representative team are in action on Sunday 14thJanuary 2018 in a League match at Westfield FC’s Allpay Park ground in Widemarsh Common, Hereford with a 14:00 kick off against hosts Herefordshire FA.
Past games between our 2 Counties have been very competitive and we expect the same to be so, everyone is keeping an eye on the weather to ensure the pitch remains playable but we are all keeping our fingers crossed.
It is an early start on Sunday with a 9.00am departure from Mansfield Town’s One Call Stadium and a pick up at The Nuthall on Cinderhill Road before we head south westwards.
Should the game go ahead we hope to have action photos available from it very shortly.
Following this Sunday’s game we have another away game to come against Birmingham CFA set for early February 2018. The match date is yet to be set.
