Monday 17 February
On Wednesday 19 February over 300 young people will be taking part in the 2014 London Youth Football Championship at London City Powerleague.
The 5-a-side competition will see teams competing in four age groups from Under-12s through to Under-19s.
The London Youth Championship forms one of the many county rounds that run across the country that link into the Ambition Regional and National structure with the winners of the London Youth Championship going through to the Regional round at Basingstoke in April.
Last year’s Under-12 champions Streatham Youth and Community Trust have not returned which means that it’s all to play for at that level while the 2013 Under-14 champions XLP will be looking to retain their title.
Copenhagen Youth Project will also be looking to retain their title in the Under-19s and could be aiming for clean sweep with teams entered in each of the age group competitions.
London has been a hotbed of talent for English football with the likes of Rio Ferdinand and Rachel Yankey having come through the sport in the capital so there is every chance you could see one of the next big England stars playing on Wednesday.
