League Update 28.03.2017

Dear Member Clubs,

Following the lengthy SGM last Thursday (23rd March) in which Member Clubs took the decision and voted to remove the Club Pro Direct from our Constitution.

It is with much regret that I must advise Member Clubs, that we have been advised that Pro Direct have lodged and Appeal against the decision and, as such, the League have been instructed that Pro Direct must be reinstated to the Constitution with immediate effect, pending the outcome of the Appeal Hearing.

The League appreciates that Member Clubs may be frustrated by this action, however we as a League, have no option but to comply.

League Matches will be reinstated to be played if previously postponed.

For postponed Cup Matches these will reinstated to play at the earliest opportunity. The League will be in touch shortly with those teams affected.

Kind regards.

Amanda

League Update 20.02.17

Dear Member Clubs,

Registrations

We would like to remind you that the window closes at midnight on Tuesday the 28th of February for any new registrations or transfers for this Season.

Anything received after this time will be NOT be processed.

Please ensure that all your Managers/Coaches are aware of this League Rule.

Result Cards

Again, I need to remind Clubs that you must record any cautions you receive on your result card otherwise it will be deemed that you have not completed the result card correctly which could result in a fine being issued.

Cup Finals

As in previous years, the winning finalists will be required to submit a team photograph for the Programme for the Final. This must be in jpeg format.

With this in mind and given that there is an extremely tight time frame, not to mention school holidays, it would be helpful if could you arrange to have a team photograph taken as soon as you know your team has reached the Final. The winning team will also receive a template to complete that will need to to be returned with the photograph when requested.

Dates and times are being finalised and we hope to get Mitoo updated shortly.

Easter

There will be no fixtures on Easter Weekend the 15th and 16th of April.

Mini Soccer and 9 v 9

The last fixtures for Mini Soccer and 9 v 9 for this season will be on the 29th and 30th of April.

League Meeting

I would remind you that the next League Meeting is on Thursday 23rd of March when you be required to return any trophies engraved that were won at our League Cup and League Shield Finals and any Shields that were presented at the League Presentation Day last June.

Presentation Day

We would remind you that the Presentation Day is Sunday 4th of June 2017 at Broxbourne Civic Hall where all winners and runners up for the U13 upwards are expected to attend. If you do not attend, the League will NOT be providing trophies. This is a very special occasion for the League and a special day for those that have won or come runners up.

There will also be Sportsmanship Awards from U9 upwards that will be awarded based on the marks that other Clubs and Referees have given during the season.

Kind regards.

League Update 27.01.2017

Dear Member Clubs,

As you are no doubt aware, there are a large number of Cup games due to take place this weekend and with the high possibility of unfavorable weather ahead, the League would like to highlight the Rule in respect of reversing fixtures.

If there is a playable pitch, please ensure that priority is given to any Cup matches which are scheduled.    If a match does not go ahead, please ensure that Managers notify their Fixtures Secretary as a matter of urgency, equally if  the match is played, they should advise their Fixtures Secretary of the result asap and by no later than 6:00 pm.

Please reiterate the above to all your Managers and Coaches so that they are aware of the applicable Rule.

Water Logged/Unplayable Pitches

Rule 10 E(iii)

“In the event of a postponement due to unplayable pitches or adverse weather conditions, it is the responsibility of both Teams to make all efforts to play the game.

If an alternative pitch can be found or the fixture can be reversed (within 24 hours of the scheduled match) then this must occur, even if the fixture has already been reversed (this may mean that teams play both fixtures at home or away). Teams should not be stood down until both Teams have confirmed with their Fixture Secretary that an alternative pitch cannot be secured.

If either Manager refuses to play or has stood their team down, without seeking an alternative pitch the Discipline Committee will ask for a written explanation from the Manager concerned.  If the Discipline Committee finds the written explanation invalid or it is not received, they may impose a non-fulfillment fine and/or award the game to the opposing team”.

Many thanks.
