Players must be in Year 7 for the under-12s group and Year 9 for under-14s, but consideration will be given to younger players if they show proficient skill.
All boys and parents who attended the May under-12s trials are asked to attend to complete registration. Football club spokesman Roy Penhallurick said: "It would be good to have youth football back in the town.
"Hopefully, the youngsters will enjoy the social aspect of the game, as well as the football part of it, by having a meal after the match with the other players."
