AGA Apprenticeships Plus U19.5 Competitions

THE EDFL has this week agreed to raise the age limit for its Under 19 competitions for the 2017 Season.

These competitions will now be Under 19.5 competitions this coming season.

In discussions during the past few weeks the EDFL had become aware that several clubs were struggling for numbers to field an Under 19 team for Season 2017.

The Board of Management was mindful that the change to the age groups for 2017 meant that there were no players pushing up from the younger age group, as would normally be the case.

Discussions with clubs struggling for numbers indicated that if the age group for the Under 19s were to be increased for 2017, it would assist in attracting more players and getting a team on the park.

Therefore, the Board has resolved to increase the age for the U19 competition to U19.5.

This is effective for the 2017 season only.

At this stage the plan is for the competition to revert back to an Under 19 competition for 2018.

The following players will be eligible to compete in the Under 19.5 competition:

  • Any male born between 1 July 1997 and 31 December 1997, inclusive of these two dates
  • Any male born in 1998
  • Any male born in 1999
