Developing football at grass roots level

The Eastern Junior Alliance (or EJA as it’s abbreviated too) is the South East Of England’s leading youth development football league, established in 1987 at just Under 18 level it has now progressed to age levels U13 to U18, with 6 age levels in total now, and great success at each level, with some players achieving success at professional level.

The EJA is the stepping stone between the academy levels of the professional ranks and the regular youth level in all counties. Spread over 9 counties in the South of England with approximately 70 clubs and 175 teams, the EJA gives youth players the chance to progress their game to a better level on and off the pitch: With higher standards of coaching, behaviour and conduct, by teaching youth players what to expect, and what will be expected of them in their future football careers.

Generally the EJA is seen as the higher standard youth league, only clubs of step 5 and above qualify to compete in this league. Statistics show that those sides who use the EJA league in their own development plan progress better and many players eventually progress into first team squads and quite often a lot higher too.
