Dear Member Clubs
We are receiving lots of queries regarding dates etc, information of which were given out at the AGM. Can I please remind you of the following and ask that you send all League updates to your Managers:-
The first cut-off date for registrations to be with firstname.lastname@example.org for guaranteed issue at the handout meeting is 16th August 2017.
The Second cut-off date for cards to be guaranteed for the start of the season, is 22nd August 2017. These cards, which will be ready by 30th August, will need to be collected from me at 151 Churchgate, Cheshunt, Herts, EN8 9DY at a mutually agreed time.
It is an FA requirement that teams have the minimum number of players registered 10 days before the start of the season (ie 30th August), failure to do this will mean you cannot play the first week of the season.
As a reminder, the minimums are as follows:-
Format minimum number
5 v 5 5
7 v 7 7
9 v 9 9
11 v 11 11
Tuesday 29th August at 7.30 pm, Shamrock Club, Welwyn Garden City, Herts.
Season Start Dates
Non published age groups U7-U11, Saturday 9th September, published age groups U13-U18 Sunday 10th September.
First League Meeting
Thursday 28th September 8pm, Shamrock Club, Welwyn Garden City, Herts. All Clubs must send a representative or will be subject to a fine.
Presentation Day – Change of Date
Sunday 10th June 2018, The Spotlight, Hoddesdon.
We still have outstanding affiliation numbers and very few clubs have sent their registrations information in. Please do this as soon as you can as there is a lot of work that we need to do once you have completed your actions.
Can I also ask you to remind Managers that they should be coming to you as Club Secretary with their questions rather than direct to the Committee.
