The Under 9's are currently in school year 4.

Prestbury Phantoms Under 9's

While most of the team trained at our Academy last season as under 8's, this year is our first competitive season.

We play in the Cheltenham Youth League and during the season we will play in three mini-soccer competitions, each lasting approximately four weeks. Details or our fixtures can be found on the FA website www.theFA.com/full-time

At Under 9 level we play 7 a-side football with rolling substitutions and no off-side. Matches are between 15 – 20 minutes each way. The maximum size of the squad that can be registered for competition is 14, however we have 20 Under 9's (and are still growing) who train with us every week waiting for the opportunity to make the squad, or until we have enough players to register another team!

We train at Pittville School between 10:00 and 11:30am. Players who aren't registered for competition can pay and play.

For more information about the Under 9's please contact jon.craxford@prestburyphantoms.co.uk

All the Under 9 coaches are FA Licensed, CRB cleared and trained in emergency first aid.
