Should I progress to coach under 18s?

 

 

The question this week comes from Paul:

I coach U11s and under U16s and the older lads want me to continue on to the U18s with them. It was never my intention to go this far, but if the boys want to continue what advice would you have on what differences I may encounter at this age?
