unders age rules

[*]would be nice if the players dont join senior team on age but at end of the season like most competitions do if your under 21 or what ever age you want to use you can play in competition that season rather than you can play first two weeks or every game bar last one depending on your actual birthdate

It is done this way on purpose so that all players have the same length of time in youths.
Previously it was done the other way and lends itself to players being more valuable early in the season as they get the longest time in yths and therefore come out as better players

It's a unique ruling supposed to promote fairness that is only found in FTP. A side benefit is that you need to be involved with managing your club throughout the season and cant just set your sides for the season and sit back.

It would be nice , if a system generated message (when a player turns 20.14) could be sent as a reminder that a player will no longer be eligable for youth matches from the following week.
