Player numbers

The executive committee has recently met to discuss player numbers and recommend a ‘cap’ for teams in each age group.

The following table has been developed, and is the approach we will take for this season and beyond. This decision was made by the Executive Committee based on historical playing numbers, player retention, equality and the promotion of playing football.

Note this is the recommended approach, and will be assessed by the Executive Committee on a case by case basis if/when required.

Boys teams

Age group Players allowed per game Recommended max squad size
Yr 7, 8 and 9 20 (15 playing, 5 on the bench) 23
Yr 10 and yr 11/12 25 (18 playing, 7 on the bench) 27

A similar table will be developed for the girls teams in due course.
