Youth Football at Fencibles comprises grades 13th, 14th, 15th and 16/17th. After 17th grade players move on to Senior Football. Youth grade teams participate in inter-club competitions, so will have both home and away games. 

The Northern Region Football (NRF) administers the draws, which are available online. Any changes to this will be communicated by the team manager and/or coach.of games are generally consistent, but may sometimes vary from week to week depending on location, weather conditions and field availability.

The 2022 football season will play over term 2 and term 3 of the school calendar. Start date is on 7/8th May and will finish 24/25th September. There will be no football over the first two weekends of the July school holidays (10/11th & 16/17th July) but there will be football on the last weekend of the holidays (23/24th July).

There are two levels of teams at Youth Football grades:

  • Development Plus Squad Teams (Development Plus Programme) – These are the top talent teams for each of our youth grades and are for players that wish to play and train two or three times a week with a dedicated professional coach. Age groups covered are 13th, 14th, 15th and 16/17th Grades. Players will need to attend trials and or be invited by selection from our Summer Academies. Development Plus Information & Youth Boys Development Plus Information
  • Youth Social Teams – for players who aren’t selected for one of the Development Plus Squads or who would prefer to play a more social level of football. Teams will be put together based on schools they attend, requests to play with friends and team from prior years (if they have played previously). These teams will play grading games at the start of the season and subsequently be placed in an appropriate league to deliver a fun level of competition. Click here for more information
