All teams within the boys sections will be guaranteed the same number of games. We will be increasing game time along with the re-introduction of 4 competitions within each age group meaning all teams will have a semi-final to play.

Clubs are encouraged to enter their best team at each age group to provide them with the best possible chance of winning the overall Jimmy Jones trophy.
