SFA Youth Cup 21-22

The SFA Youth Cup is the national competition for Under 18 teams.

The number of entrants has reduced significantly in recent seasons – at one stage almost all SFA members entered a team but this year there are forty entrants.  One factor in this is the decision to change the age qualification from Under 20 to Under 18.
