Prestbury Phantoms Under 16's

The Under 16's are from school year 11. There is one U16 team, the U16 Spirits.

The  team is registered with the Cheltenham Youth Football league, and their fixtures are available to view via the CYFL Fulltime Page.

Football in this age group is based on continuing to progress core football techniques, developing key skills which can be taken into the wider workplace such as managing social interactions, building self confidence and improving communication and having FUN.

The Under 16's train at Pittville school on a Thursday evening from 6.30pm to 8.00pm in the summer, and at Newlands on a Wednesday evening from 6.30pm to 8.00pm in the winter, and play league matches on a Sunday afternoon.
