Costs and Equipment

We supply all necessary playing equipment and team uniform – all you need is suitable practice clothing and footwear and a gumshield. Player subs are £120 a year, payable by monthly standing order split across 12 months from Oct-Oct.  This covers expenses for training, tournaments, equipment and other running costs and allows us to budget across the year. In addition, parents or guardians will be required to register their youth player with the league each year for competition and insurance purposes. This currently costs £20.00.


We train on Sundays from 10am-12pm from January until the end of September and year round on Tuesdays from 7pm-8.30pm at Duncanrig High School from mid-January until the end of November.  Please email juniors@piratesfootball.co.uk for more information and to register interest in joining.
