With 2 hard-fought players in each) at all of our younger age groups. Our draws and a couple of narrow defeats in our opening 7 Under 9's have two Squads, going by the names of BJFF games in the Pizza division, we are hoping for the first 3 Blades and BJFF Predators, with both squads taking point haul during November. part in the Poulton & District Primary League, the Blades in Division 1A and the Predators in Division 1B.

This age-group sees the first competitive football for our youngsters, with football at Under 8's and below purely developmental (non-competitive). The Under 9's season sees regular fixtures against other local teams, with 2 games of 40 minutes taking place against each team on a Home and Away basis each Saturday morning. To date so far this season, our Blades have started strongly, with the ethos on playing ALL 20 players in the Squad for the same amount of time, rotating regularly to allow ALL players to develop on the pitch with results not the only focus. Having played 14 games by the end of October, our Blades Squad have won 8 drawn 2 and lost 4 games so far this season, scoring 58 goals and conceding 28 in the process, a terrific start to league football which sees us 4th in the table of 10. Our Predators, with some players who are new to football, have started really well, effectively always competing against the strongest 2 teams at other Clubs, and in our opening 14 games, the Predators have exceeded expectations by winning 4, drawing 1 and losing 9, scoring 15 goals in the process. This shows the strength of BJFF against other Clubs in the area, being able to sustain 2 teams in an age group, and be competitive in both, with 8 coaches providing some excellent training sessions, and all the boys and girls enjoying themselves.

Division after our opening 4 games saw 3 victories and 1 defeat for a 9 point haul. Our Under 13's are taking the league by storm....... having been "wooden-spoonists" last season, finishing rock bottom of the league, a new management team (Phil Wing and Tracie Johnson) were appointed, and they have overseen a transformation in the attitude and ability of the squad, mixing new players with some of last year's squad to produce a stunning start to the season which has shocked their opponents to the core, an unbeaten 5 game run with 4 wins, 1 draw and an astounding 30 goals scored (Tom Coffey with a personal haul of 18 goals enjoying an outstanding start to the season). Our Under 14's Whites have had a balanced start to life in the Domino division, with 2 wins and 2 defeats in our opening 4 games, whilst in the Pizza division our Under 14's Blues have made a similar start with 1 win and 1 draw in their opening 2 league games, although they have only played 2 games due to an excellent run in the Lancashire Cup which has seen our Blues progress to the 3rd Round of the County competition, again highlighting our strength in depth.
