U19 boys League

SEASON  2016/17 

Season 2016/17   

Same format as last season, with two leagues of nine teams each, giving 16 fixtures for each team through the two terms, and a total of 144 matches to be played in all. The two teams finishing at the foot of league 1 will be replaced by the top two teams from league 2. All teams are definitely required to actually play at least 85% of their fixtures ( at least 14 of the 16 matches ) - failure to do so will  lead to removal from the league. Concession of matches should be kept to a real minimum - such defaults will now incur a 0-5 penalty loss, unless due to exceptional circumstances which cannot  reasonably be anticipated. The leagues will conclude on Thursday 6th.April - no results will be accepted after this date.

The composition of the two leagues has undergone some changes for the coming season:

   -  Telford College (TCAT) will return to league 1, but with their 1st.team. 

   -  Codsall High School are upgrading their teams, they will now have their 2nd.team in league 1 and their 3rd.team  in league 2.

   -  Thomas Telford will be entering their 4th.team into league 2, whilst Oswestry School are welcomed as new entrants to that league. 

   -   Holy Trinity Academy (HTA) will unfortunately not be re-entering league 2 due to changed timetabling locking out their players on Wednesday afternoons.

   -   New College will be withdrawing their 2nd. team from league 2.



The league has always relied upon the sporting integrity and professionalism of the teaching staff involved ( together with any hired external managers) to deliver a fair, decent and rewarding competition. Touchline standards of conduct and respect by the team managers should be exemplary, and these standards conveyed as far as possible to the players on the field. 

   The rules below will only work if they are printed off and displayed/filed with easy access. The Association (SSCFA) should do likewise in case of any future disputes. It is intended that these rules will be removed from this site in January 2016.


RULE 2:     ELIGIBILITY:    the league is open to full-time male students, under the age of 19 years on September 1st.2016, in post-16 educational centres in Shropshire, or within easy travel time if out of county. Schools may, at their discretion, select year 11 players, but careful consideration should be given to their suitability.

        Colleges/schools may only strengthen their league side(s) by deploying no more than TWO regular/automatic players from a higher team together with no more than TWO marginal or squad players from a higher team. Contravention of this league rule, if proven, will lead to an automatic 5-0 default loss, and if repeated,  removal from the league.


   If the league rules are repeatedly ignored by a team manager,TWO PENALTY POINTS  will be deducted on each occasion.   


SEASON  2015/16

Of the 128 scheduled fixtures there were only 12 postponements (mostly due to weather) and all of these were rescheduled and replayed. However, 11 fixtures ( 9%) were defaulted and not played ( 9 of these were in league 2 ). Idsall School retained the league shield narrowly from Adams Grammar and the new entrants Codsall High, whilst Shrewsbury School and Thomas Adams School were relegated. Shrewsbury Sixth Form College took the league 2 title and were promoted with the runners-up New College.

NOTE:   an asterisk against a team's points total in the league tables below indicates that penalty points have been deducted .
