We currently have 5 U11 and 4 U12 9a-side teams who play in the Southend & District Junior Sunday League.
9a-side football creates a bridge between mini-soccer and 11a-side games allowing teams to be prepared for 11a-side football.
The key benefits for 9a-side games are children get more touches of the ball, there are more scoring attempts, it helps to develop technical skills and leads to increased enjoyment of the game.
U11 teams have no set leagues and no results are published, this is to keep focus on the development of players. Moving up to U12 players get their first taste of competitive football within a set league and divisions.
