More than 180 boys and girls showed what they could do on the football pitch as Cambridge FC’s juniors section began the task of allocating players to teams for the season ahead.
And more than 300 children are expected to take part in the second grading day next Sunday (March 11).
Junior co-ordinator Tim Bailey said all had gone well during the first grading day, despite the hot sun, and he thanked parents for their support.
The first set of games involved players wanting to play for U-8 and U-10 girls and players between 8th and 12th grades.
Next Sunday, the programme will be:
Sunday March 11
1pm – 2pm – U-12 girls and U-14 girls (if any) – please note these team sizes are the same at 9v9. These grading events replace the boys’ 8th grade session which is no longer required.
2pm – 3pm – 9th grade
3pm – 4pm – 10th grade
4pm – 5pm – 11th grade
5pm – 6pm – 12th grade, 13th/14th grade – all players
5pm – 6pm – Goalkeeper Trials, 9th – 13th/14th Grade including U10 and U12 Girls
The aim of Cambridge Football Club is to provide quality football opportunities for players of ALL levels and grading is the best way to ensure players are in teams with others of a similar ability; this process helps to ensure your child gets the best from their season.
