U19 Tables

I have not yet discovered the exact makeup of the FA Premier Academy leagues for this season yet - I'm guessing (from fixture lists) there are now four 9 or 10-team conferences for the U19s. Arsenal are in what appears to be a southern/midlands section, make-up again guessed/deduced from the fixture lists, though it seems to have changed again from last season. NB Probably inaccurate and incomplete.

U17 Tables

From next year there will be only one premier academy league competition, and for this reason some clubs have already dispensed with their U17 teams. There are thus slightly fewer teams in the league this year, but I have yet to confirm whether there are 4 conferences of 7/8 teams.

NB may be incomplete and inaccurate
