As some teams have been on the end of some heavy results this season we would like to remind all of our affiliated schools that there is a 6-0 rule.  If a team is beating another team by 6-0 or by 6 clear goals, the game is completed.  For morale of the smaller schools we do not want teams to be beaten by a margin bigger than this.  If you are finding you are winning games by this margin please follow the steps given below: -

1.      substitute stronger players with your weaker players

2.      play with less players (take 1 player off at a time) if the score is starting to increase dramatically
3.      give your team an individual target, e.g. 6 passes before you can shoot or 1 touch to score.

If you can think up any other rules to make the games more competitive please use your professional judgement.  Obviously put players back on if the results are getting to close.

Real example from this season

Pencoed played Bro Ogwr on Thursday 8th November.  Pencoed knew Bro Ogwr were a new team as they had only just started playing football in their school and had been on the end of a heavy score line against Nottage (Nottage were very fair and made every opportunity to make it competitive).  Pencoed decided to take a Year 5 team (B team) to give them exposure to league football and they knew they would produce a much more competitive game against Bro Ogwr (mixed girls and boys in years 5 and 6).  The game finished 6-3 to Pencoed and teachers from both school felt this was a much better experience for all the children involved.

Don’t be afraid to speak to other teachers from the team you are playing to gain an insight to how good their team is.  Most teachers will be very honest.  There is no harm in winning the games, but it’s just the margin.

Thank you for your support and I hope we have some close encounters over the coming season.



Nottage beat St Clare's 7-0. According to the staff present the match was competitive and well spirited.  Well done to St Clare's.
