Dear Club Secretaries,
Please accept our apologies that the Registration documents have not yet been sent.
We are currently having issues with the mainframe and are working to resolve this issue.
In the meantime, please find attached the League Registration Guide for 2018-2019, which should provide you with the information you require to start your registration process.
The spreadsheets will be sent to you as a matter of urgency on the resolution of the technical issue.
Dear Member Clubs,
Please find attached the Constitution for MHRML 2018-19 season.
The League received numerous Appeals and where possible the Constitution has been amended. Where an Appeal has not been successful, the results of that team will be monitored closely over the first few weeks of the season and we will move any of these teams if we feel that they are placed incorrectly.
We also reserve the right to move any teams that were successful with their Appeal should they turn out to be in the incorrect division.
The Constitution for the forthcoming Season has now been set and a copy has been sent to the Herts FA, they will now check to make sure all Clubs who have joined our League have affiliated to a County FA.
All Clubs must affiliate every year to a County FA, any Club who is found not to have affiliated will be suspended from playing football. As a League we will be in breach of FA Rules if we let Clubs play without being affiliated to the FA. Please can I remind Club Secretaries that if you have changed your team names since affiliating with your County FA you must inform them of any new team names.
If Clubs have added new teams since affiliating with their County FA, please remember to let your County FA know or your new teams will not be covered by the FA Insurance. Your County FA needs to know about all teams from U7’s through to U18’s.
If we are notified that Clubs are using a different team name by their County FA, we will have no option, but to change the Constitution to reflect this and to pass on any fines we receive to the Clubs concerned. If the teams concerned then need their MHRML registration cards reprinted with the new name, it will be at a cost to the club of £2 per card.
Clubs must check the attached constitution to confirm that we have the correct team names for your teams. If you notice any discrepancies please can you email email@example.com so changes can be made before Mitoo is published.
Fixture secretaries will be reviewing the results from our non-published leagues on a regular basis. Due to the number of new non published teams requesting the bottom division there are a number of age groups which have more than one ‘bottom’ division as there were too many to put into one. It is essential that those children taking part in these divisions develop their football skills, and are able to take part whatever their ability and have the opportunity to feel success. Teams will be moved up and down during the season in order to meet these objectives.
There will be no more changes to the Constitution now, unless it is a team name change. All the appeals have been heard by four Members of the Committee and a decision has been reached and no further Appeals can be submitted.
Dear Member Clubs,
Please find attached a copy of the Draft Constitution for the 2018-2019 season for the Mid Herts Rural Minors League.
If Clubs have any queries or wish to Appeal against where teams have been placed, can they please email firstname.lastname@example.org. All correspondence must be in writing and via the Club Secretary.
The deadline for lodging any Appeals is Sunday 1st July 2018. No Appeals received after this date will be considered.
The Appeals Committee will be Mick Hickford (General Secretary) Christine Lovell (Treasurer), Carole Marshall and Maxine Carter. The Final Constitution will be set by 8th July 2018.
There are many age groups where there is a different number of Divisions than previous years. Therefore, when looking at where your teams are placed, please take this into consideration and assess the teams you are
grouped with, not the name of the Division.
In respect of non-published age groups U7-U12:-
* The Management Committee will move teams as the season progresses to ensure teams are in an appropriate Division for their standard, and if necessary, after looking at results, will make changes.
* Please only appeal if you believe your team has been placed in completely the wrong Division (i.e. more than two divisions adrift) and you have clear justification to support this;
* Many of the non-published teams have stated they are development or completely new teams, so it would be impossible to get these correctly placed from the outset. Please bear with us on this.
In respect of published age groups U13-U18:-
All teams will be closely monitored by their Fixtures Secretary throughout September and early October and if there is clear evidence of an incorrect Divisional placing, those teams will be moved into a more appropriate
Can I ask Club Secretaries to check the Constitution to ensure that we have
the correct full teams’ names listed. Please note that those teams listed with the League, must be the same as those registered with the County FA to which they are affiliated.
Any amendments/discrepancies with team names should be notified to email@example.com by no later than 8th July 2018.
Dear Member Clubs,
We would remind you that the AGM is on Thursday the 21st of June 2018 commencing at 8.00 pm at The Shamrock Club.
Clubs are reminded that they may send only two delegates to the AGM on Thursday 21st of June. Each Club shall be entitled to one vote.
When clubs arrive, can they ensure they sign in and please hand in the Final Club Entry Form and payment to the Committee. If you are paying by BACS you can email your club entry form prior to the AGM to save queueing to hand in on the night.
