Grappenhall Sports U9s Lions for 2016/17 Season (Photo was taken back in 2014/15 season as Under 7s)

Welcome to the Under 9s Lions' home page

Our Under 9s section has 2 teams... Lions and Tigers. Both teams have a mixture of ability that is in-line with the Club's philosophy of being inclusive to all.

Both teams are affiliated to the Mid Cheshire Youth Football League and play in a series of none competitive matches throughout the 2016/17 season as Under 9s.

The Lions this season have moved up from the small sided 5-a-side format to 7-a-side. For each fixture, the squad will be split into two teams and each Lion will play in one of those teams which will be either match one or match two lasting two 25 minute halves.

The squad size is 20 strong therefore two teams of ten Lions with equal mixed ability have been formed to play in the two matches. This will be reviewed if required going forward.

Matches are played on Saturday mornings with match 1 kicking off around 10am throughout the season.

Training times will change depending on the time of the year.

Autumn Time (Sep-Oct): At Stockton Lane starting at 6pm through to no later than 7.30pm on Mondays starting on 5th September.

Winter Time (Oct-Mar): At Broomfield Leisure Centre's floodlit 3G pitches on a Mondays starting at 5.30pm finishing at 6.30pm.

Spring/Summer Time (Apr-Jul): TBC but last season this was at Euclid Park (not at the club as the pitches need to be rested) starting at 6pm through to 7.30pm or dusk (whichever is earlier). Currently this is held every Monday.
