Junior Premier League
The Junior Premier League is an opportunity for top quality under 16’s players to showcase their ability against other high-quality opposition. Our Pre-Academy side and the hope of that is that they get a taste of the Academy experience a year earlier. The JPL is the middle ground in between grassroots and elite level football and it is also a legitimate platform for players to develop and showcase themselves. Matchdays are played every Saturday and travel across the North going from the likes of Carlisle to Doncaster. Our JPL framework began in the 2020-21 season but had to be postponed due to COVID-19. We play high quality opposition such as private academies, junior semi-pro teams or foundations of professional clubs. Playing in the JPL does not affect you playing for your Sunday team.
