Following the recent Junior Summer League Forum, I am pleased to present the finalised details for the Skelmersdale Junior Summer League at JMO Sports Park.

The League will take a small sided format which is recognised as the best way to develop players’ basic skills and games will be played on Sunday Mornings starting on Sunday 2nd June 2012. The league will be run as a preseason league with teams playing at the age group for the new season (ie 2012/13) they are about to take part in. In order to accommodate all age groups, games will be set up as follows;

Team Sizes, Pitches, Match Durations and Fees will be as follows:
Under 7’s and 8’s – 6 a side on enclosed 7 a side pitches – 30 min games - £12 per team per game
Under 9’s and 10s – 7 a side on enclosed 7 a side pitches – 40 min games - £15 per team per game
Under 11’s and older – 9 a side on a third of a full size pitch – 50 min games - £17.50 per team per game
Match fees cover pitch hire costs, trophies & medals and referees.

Kick Off Times:
Under 10’s and Under 15’s – 10 am Under 9’s and Under 14’s – 11am
Under 8’s and Under 13’s – 12pm Under 7’s and Under 12’s – 1pm Under 11’s – 2pm

We will finalise the number of games to be played once we have teams signed up but the league will end prior to your regular season commencing in order to avoid any conflicts

We believe that this exciting new league will enhance the offering of football locally and will benefit the teams taking part once their regular season starts up again.

If you would like to enter your team, please complete the attached/enclosed form and return it to us with your entry fee which will cover your first two match fees.
