Under 17 News - 2016/2017

It has been agreed that for this year Staffordshire will initially be nominating the following 4 clubs for the U17 National Cups.

Tier 1. Lichfield

Tier 2. Walsall

Tier 3. Wolverhampton

Tier 4. Newcastle

If there are any other clubs who wish to gain nomination to these cups please inform me by Monday 17th October.

What will then happen is that these clubs will play off and the winner will be able to challenge Newcastle as they are in the 4th tier of the National Cups. As Newcastle play in the Raging Bull Leagues they will be given 3 possible dates on which they have to accept the challenge from whichever club wins through to challenge them. They will then host this game on the agreed date. It is important that we get this sorted out as quickly as possible to ensure we get it played before the nominations go in.

If I do not receive, by the date above, the names of any other clubs wanting to be nominated then Newcastle will keep their place.

Kind regards


Chairman of the Staffordshire
