SSE Wildcats

Under-6 Football



Northamptonshire FA would like to remind everyone about the rule concerning the youngest age that children can play in organised matches.

The FA rule on this is really clear, and is contained within the Standard Code Of Rules – Youth (SCORY)

Children Under 6 Years Old

‘A child who has not attained the age of six shall not play, and shall not be permitted or encouraged to play, in a match of any kind’

Clubs need to remember this when anyone within their club is advertising on social media pages for friendlies or tournaments involving Under 6 teams.

See the map below for U6 Development Centres near you.
