New Heading Guidelines for Junior Training Sessions

The FA have today announced updated heading guidance for all age groups between under 6 and Under 18.

The updated heading guidance, which will be introduced immediately, will provide grassroots clubs, coaches and players with the recommended heading guidance for training sessions only. The guidance does not make any changes to the way matches are played.

All Southwell City managers and coaches are requested that they make themselves familiar with the new rules ASAP so that the club is fully compliant with the new initiative.

If any manager has questions on this subject, please approach anybody on the exec committee for clarification.
