Players of the Middlesex FA U18 Representative team huddle together before the FA County Youth Cup Final

Representative Football

Represent your County

Representative football in Middlesex has a long and rich history.

It’s an important part of football in the County and it’s no small honour to be called up to play.

World-Cup winner, Jimmy Greaves and former England captains Ray Wilkins and David Beckham have all wore the red and blue of Middlesex during their careers. 

Essentially, a representative team is made up of the best young players in the county. It acts as a chance for young footballers who are not under professional contracts to test themselves against players from other counties and showcase their skills on a national stage. 

Here at the Middlesex FA, we run four representative teams: Ladies, Mens, Under 18 boys and Under 16 boys. Each team will compete in an inter-county competition and play a number of fixtures across the course of the season. 

The Under 18 boys team also compete in the prestigious FA County Youth Cup and have won the competition on five previous occasions, the last coming in the 2016/17 season.
