The WFL aims to enhance the provision and opportunities as well as increasing the amount of successful home grown players so therefore each season they take one player from each team in under18s and gives them the chance to take part in a ?Watford All Star? trial match watched by many scouts and academy managers. My team is Hinton and Finchley and are currently in the Red division (2nd division). The FA aims to provide additional support with adding sponsors to the football kit and paying a certain percentage of the costs. Schools in the borough offer student in the years of 7-11 have a school football team. They compete with other schools and take part in the borough cup.

They have different level courses and each sport course offers a chance to get a coaching or referee certificate for free. London FA has set up course on different date and location for coaching and refereeing (XI). The Refereeing courses are available and are sponsored by the UEFA.
