        Teams should consist of 5 players with a maximum of 10 players in the squad.

        Matches will be 5 a side, including a Goalkeeper, and played in general conformity with the rules as issued by the Football Association. In particular, please note the following:

        At a goal kick, opponents must retreat to their own half until the ball is in play.

The ball is in play when it is kicked directly out of the penalty area.

        Goalkeepers should not take longer than 6 seconds to release the ball

        The back pass rule applies

        Opposing players should be at least 5 yards away from the ball at free kicks, goal kicks and corner kicks.

        Overhead throw ins or underarm roll ins are allowed


        Reframed If a team has a clear 3 goal lead, then the opposing team is permitted to introduce an additional player – should the lead increase to 5 goals, then a second player is permitted. Players should be removed if/when the goal difference is reduced.
