Below are the steps to register for 2019. Its a slightly different process this season as we now use 'Play Football' (rather than My Football Club).However the process is still quite straight forward.
PLEASE NOTE: You need to register in the age group you intend to play rather than your chronological age.
eg. If you turn 11 in 2019 but intend to play in U12, register as an U12 player, similarly players turning 7 in 2019 who wish to play in U8 should register as U8s.
This applies to all players in any age eg a 17 year old who wishes to play in seniors should register as PL/AAM/ or PYL as the case may be..
