Progressing on from Saturday Club, our players move into our Youth Football group where they will start to play matches and be allocated a squad by their coach.
Our u9 & U10 teams play mini soccer which is a seven a side game. The aim of mini soccer is again to provide fun. It is designed to ensure that children get plenty of ball time in which to develop their skills in a non-competitive environment whilst having all the features of real football.
Mini soccer aims to encourage children to take part in football so they feel successful, learn to play as a team, understand the rules, develop skills, and take an active part in a game of football.
Our U9 and U10 teams are part of the Timperley and District Junior Football League. How many teams / squads we have each year depends on the number of players we have registered. Matches for U9s and U10s are generally played on Saturdays, fixtures are listed a week in advance on the FA Full Time website. Team Managers will advise and coordinate games for their teams either via email or What’s App groups.
U9s and U10s train on Mondays 5 – 6.20 pm
Membership of the U9 and U10s team is £260 per year, this includes 1 full Egerton FC kit (to last 2 years) and all training /coaching sessions and games.
Our U11 & U12 teams play 9 a side football and then move to 11 a side, on larger pitches, from U13. Each team will usually enter the league and a number of cup competitions with promotion, relegation and success / exits from the cups becoming new scenarios the players must face. We operate to an optimum squad size of 16 players and selection of squad size is generally fixed by youth football. New transfers or changes in circumstance may necessitate change HOWEVER all team change at these age groups is only facilitated through the club.
As players progress through the age groups teams will become more technical and physical and the demands of the game requiring focus and attention to match day specifics which are normally worked on in the weekly training sessions. Players formulate their own likes and dislikes and will certainly have opinion on both team selection and positions. These circumstances must be worked on as a team to provide successful outcomes.
Training Sessions are lead by FA and UEFA qualified coaches with an aim to develop the individual, the team and a focus on enjoying football.
