Players of the Lagos Junior League, LJL, a regulated U-20 football league set up with the aim of scouting, nurturing and exposing grassroots talents to the world will soon return to action.
The youth tournament, which is also used to promote formal education in-line with the universally embraced FIFA 1-goal project, features clubs and teams from the 57 Local Governments and LCDAâ€™s in Lagos State and private clubs.
The qualification round was played from September, 2010 through February this year.
The organiser say the previous tournament was used as a yardstick to classify the teams into the Premiership division, League 1 and League 2.
â€œThe maiden edition of the LJL Premier League will commence tentatively on the 17 September, 2011, while the League 1 and 2 will kick off a month later,â€ the Secretary of LJL, Barrister Aromire said in a statement.
