Having had their opening day fixtures postponed due to the death of The Queen, teams representing the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust get their season underway tomorrow (September 17th).
The Trust’s Under-11s and Under-12s will face their counterparts from Bridgwater Town in the Junior Premier League (JPL), with its Under-13s, Under-14s, Under-15s and Under-16s playing the Exeter Regional Talent Centre’s (RTC) sides.
Fixtures (all 10am kick-offs)
YTCST Under-11s v Bridgwater Town Under-11s
YTCST Under-12s v Bridgwater Town Under-12s
YTCST Under-13s v Exter RTC Under-13s
YTCST Under-14s v Exter RTC Under-14s
YTCST Under-15s v Exter RTC Under-15s
YTCST Under-16s v Exter RTC Under-16s
The Trust’s JPL teams are run in conjunction with its existing Talent ID Centre programme within the region as well as our Advanced Talent ID Centre’s which were established with the aim of developing local players.
The JPL is run in a very similar way to Academy level football with the only difference being the incentive to play for league points and participate in cup competitions.
All of the Trust’s players have the opportunity to represent Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust and Yeovil Town Football Club at a competitive level.
Fixtures are played on a Saturday morning and therefore do not conflict with local leagues who operate on a Sunday as we believe that it is important for the Trust to work alongside local grassroots clubs in order to help develop young footballers within the area.
