London FA Representative Teams: Under 16 & Under 18

Although we have held initial trials we are always looking for high quality players to represent London FA, and we would welcome recommendations from coaches for suitable players.  We will accept personal applications from players subject to suitable experience.

The Under 16 team play up to five league games a season against other counties, while our Under 18’s will also play in the FA County Youth Cup as well as the league.  We are a representative team so players continue to be eligible for their league teams and most leagues offer fixture relief to clubs with players selected for county. We will offer a high standard of coaching and facilities to the selected players and the opportunity to develop their games playing different opponents. As you would expect at this level we maintain high standards of safeguarding and have a physio in attendance at all matches for the player's welfare. All our games are played in stadiums and travel is organised for all away fixtures. This is a great opportunity to experience the highest level of grass roots football, there are no fees and players are awarded a cap after five games.


All players must be London born, which is roughly born in any London borough or playing for a London FA affiliated club. Please put the full place of birth on the registration form so we can check eligibility before the trial and not have any wasted journeys.


Please fill in the application form including the parental consent boxes and return to the email address on the form. You will be contacted to arrange a trial.


Our team managers Richard George and Francis Aderiye will make the final selection for the squads.
