Dear Member Clubs,
Can I please remind you that all correspondence other than to do with fixtures must come via yourselves to me. Some of the emails I have received direct this week could have quite easily been solved by you. Myself, Carole and Maxine are happy to deal with enquiries direct regarding full-time activation but all other enquiries need to come via Club Secretaries
Great progress is being made with Managers/Coaches etc activating their log on details on Full-Time, however, there are still quite a few that have not. Please encourage your Managers/Coaches/Administrators to do this ASAP.
We are already seeing Kick Off times appear on Full Time –we appreciate you may not yet know what time as a couple of weeks away but as soon as you do know please update Full Time.
Players are being updated regularly so please don’t contact us if you are missing any players until after the hand-out meeting on Tuesday.
We are currently updating our website where we hold all our directories etc and as soon as this has been completed I will let you have the details.
We would advise that we are still in the process of sorting out a system to manage Referee allocations and would ask that you bear with us for the moment and refrain from emailing with queries about Referees. Further information will follow but we would advise that as always priority for allocations will be given to those games with published KO times.
Please find attached latest version of the Directory.

Laws of the Game
We have sent the following to all our referees which will also be of use to all your Managers/Coaches:
Hopefully, you will be aware of the major re-write of the Laws of the Game that have been implemented. Here is useful link to help you view the revised Laws and understand the changes ready for the start of our Season.
Special attention needs to be given to the number of substitutes you may take to a game for U11’s upwards.
Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
