What Does the player need to wear to games?
Unless otherwise stated every player needs to wear district blazer, white shirt, dark trouser, shoes and district tie. Some grounds do not have changing facilities, but this will be stated in match details in advance.
What boots are needed?
If you have both studs and blades / moulds then both. There are a few fixtures on Astro turf, these will always be moulded / blades / astro trainers.
Why is my child playing in a different position than he plays for his club/ school?
The squads are selected for balance and strength in all positions. As talented young players we expect hem to be versatile and welcome the experience of playing in a variety of positions as part of their football development.
Do I need to confirm my child’s availability for the coming fixture?
Being selected for a district squad means that we will expect the players to be available for the upcoming fixtures. We need to know in advance if they CANNOT play.
When do the District play their matches?
We play almost exclusively on Saturdays. On rare occasions we may play during the half term. Also we fulfil fixtures in Jersey(April) and Gloucester every season.
Is there training?
Yes, Thursdays. 5:30pm at Charlton Athletic Training Ground. Rotating squads, starting in November and runs until February.
Park at Foots Cray Rugby Sports and Athletic Club to access the pitches.
