How can I get involved with Junior Football?

There are around one million junior football players in England, and there are teams in nearly every town and village.

Junior Football is administered by county Football Associations, which are part of the FA.  Each team plays in a league; which are independent of the FA but have to be registered with them.

What sort of things can I get involved in?

Perhaps you want to play in a junior football team, or are the parent of someone who wants to play?  Or maybe you are interested in becoming a coach or helper at a junior football team.
