Our junior teams play in the West Area (name changed in 2018 from North Area) of the Middlesex Colts Association (MCA) League for boys and the Middlesex Seaxe League for girls. Most league matches are played against other clubs in our local area to minimise travel time after school. All midweek matches start at 6:00pm and Sunday matches at 10:00am. Players need to arrive at the ground no later than 5:30pm for the warm up for midweek games and no later than 9:30am for the Sunday games. For away games all players must meet directly at the away venue at least 30 minutes before the start time - we do not arrange lifts from our ground. Cup games can be on any day of the week and are advised once the cup draws are made.

Selection is informed by email or text a few days in advance of the fixture date. By pressing the "I am available" or the "I am not available" button in the email or replying "yes" or "no" to your text, it updates our team-sheet on the website and confirms that player's availability to the team manager. It is important to make yourself available for both home and away matches. If the match is called off due to bad weather, the parents of those players selected will receive a text message. All players selected for matches must wear our official club shirt.
