When do matches take place?
This will depend on age group and league your child plays in. 4 and 5’s festivals for boys are typically held on Saturday morning within East Lothian. 4’s and 5’s Girls festivals are held across the Lothian’s every two weeks and are held on Sunday mornings.
7’s / 9’s for Boys: If the team is registered with East Lothian Soccer Sevens Development Association, fixtures are held on a Saturday, played between sides based in East Lothian. It is becoming more common for 7’s and 9’s teams to register in the Edinburgh Soccer Sevens Development Association, for greater variation in fixtures and to present a challenge based on ability. These games are played on a Sunday.
U11 and U13 7-a-side Girls: Played on a Sunday morning although the U13 league is a competitive league and midweek fixtures may take place.
U13 to U16 Boys 11-a-side: U13 and U14 traditionally play in the SE Region Youth football leagues with games played Sunday morning. U15 and U16 play on a Sunday afternoon. KO times may vary if games are played on 3G. Again, these leagues are competitive and fixtures are held midweek as well as the Sunday for the first few weeks of the season and again in May.
U17 / U19 Boys 11-a-side fixtures: These take place on a Saturday afternoon.
