NLD U14 Competition Format
In 2016-17 we will be trialling a three tier competition at U14 level ONLY. This will run as a Cup, Plate & Shield with the top teams from last year’s Cup being entered into the Cup once again. The bottom teams from the Cup and the top teams from the Shield being entered into the Plate and the remaining teams in the Shield. We will confirm the tier of competition that your club will compete in once the entries have all been received and the number of teams in each will be very much dependant on entries.
NLD U15 & U16 Competition Format
The format for the U15 & U16 competitions will be as previous years with a Cup and Shield competition. The number of rounds in each competition will be determined by the number of clubs that enter.
U14-16 Semi Finals
The winners of each pool and the best runner up of the three pools will go through to the semi-final draw. The draw will seed the two teams from the same pool in opposite semi-finals the remaining two teams will be drawn into the remaining places. In the event of 4 pools the top team from each pool will be entered straight into the semi-final and a straight draw will take place. The Semi Finals will be only one game and the team drawn first will be given the home advantage.
Once entries have closed we will aim to have the fixtures circulated as soon as possible so that clubs can plan for the season.
