NLD U14 Competition Format

The U14 competition will be run in the same format as in 2017-18.  It will be a tiered waterfall competition and full details will be circulated once entries are confirmed and we know exactly how many teams have entered.  Please indicate on your entry form if you wish to enter the Cup or Shield competition.  We will do our best to accommodate all requests but this will depend on entries.  Please note that last year the U14 competition was over subscribed, entries will be on a first come, first served basis so please enter early to avoid disappointment.

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.

U15-16 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
