This. 3G pitches are now so good they should be used for all youth football up to 16 (and even later). The difference between learning your football on a 3G (like the one at Woodley, for e.g.) and one of the primary schools pitches junior teams have to use otherwise is massive. You simply can't learn a passing game on a bumpy field.
If the FA are serious about wanting to develop English football, they use some of the massive revenue they generate to give every school in the country a 3G pitch.
