Under-18s to Under-21s

Developing from youth to adult football

With U17, U18 and U21 divisions, the Oxford Mail Youth Football League provides the perfect platform for the transition from youth to adult football.

With over 35 teams registered the past three seasons, the league allows players aged 16-21 to experience playing against new opposition within the youth set-up before taking the final steps on their football adventures into the adult game.

The league actively supports the FA’s Respect Programme and aims to appoint FA qualified, registered referees to every league and cup game.

Matches are usually played on Sunday afternoons, and play 11-a-side allowing rolling substitutions.
