Norfolk FA runs a representative team at Under 18’s Youth level.
The squad participates in the East Anglian Counties Competition, as well as competing in the FA County Youth Cup.
To represent your County is a considerable honour and the squad is drawn from the many hundreds of teams competing all over Norfolk. As expected the standard of football is very high and competition for places is healthy.
The 2016-17 season was a hugely successful season, with the U18's squad finishing top of the East Anglian Counties Competition and reaching the third round of the FA County Youth Cup.
- Players are nominated by their respective clubs.
- The Norfolk FA Representative Management team hold trial and selection evenings for the squad in the summer.
- This is followed by at least one friendly match against local opposition to see the players as a unit.
- Furthermore, the management team visit as many games as possible to see the players compete in their own environment.
