The Berkshire Youth Leagues for 2010/11 have been finalised and the fixtures can be found on the home page of the Youth Leagues section of this website. The significant changes for the new season are:
(a) A second division has been created for U13s, so now there are two divisions at all four age groups
(b) A slight change in the Rule 7.2 means that no players are allowed to play down an age group - where a club has a small age group, the club is still allowed to play players up an age group (as per RFU Regulations). The BYL rules now allow up to 4 players to play up.
As guidance where clubs have a B team entered, it is suggested that 10 A squad players are identified and should not play in B squad fixtures. This should apply whether they have just returned from injury etc and there should not be the situation where county players ever play in the B squad.
This season Janette Tichband will be assisiting in the administration of the BYL and OBB Leagues. Please email Janette and myself, with results by noon latest on the Monday following the fixture and we will update the tables within hours.
