Dear Member Clubs,

Fixtures for the first weekend of our Season will be released on Mitoo tomorrow (21.08.17).

You will by now have received your Club/team passwords for Mitoo, these should be forwarded on to your  Managers without delay, to enable them to put KO times on the website.  If you have not received your passwords, please let me know.

Please find attached the Final version of the Club Directory which will be issued before the start of the season.  A copy is on the MHRML website, which you also  have the password for.

Further updates to the Directory will be made on a monthly basis and changes can be sent to directorychanges@midherts.com, please return the completed spreadsheet and highlight any changes.

League Update 18.08.17 – Important Information

Dear Member Clubs,

Please find below information which will need to be passed to all Managers as a matter of urgency:-

Mitoo Passwords – these will be sent out this weekend to club secretaries.

Fixture Releases – the first weekend of fixtures will be released on Monday 21st August.

Divisions – for all Divisions where there are less than 8 teams, each team will play each other 3
times. The structure of the divisions has been based on ability not volume of teams. Games will be monitored and adjustments considered by the Committee.

Fines – This year the league will be imposing fines for unpublished teams in accordance with the Rules. Further details will be sent out in due course.

Kick Off Times – Please ensure that KO times are added to fixtures as soon as possible to aid Referee allocations. Managers will be sent an email explaining the allocation procedure.

Playing Weeks – for Saturday fixtures the playing weeks have been worked out and a plan is attached for your information.

Twitter – The committee have made the decision to remove the Twitter profile for MHRML due to negative comments being shared through this medium. We will continue with Facebook.

Middlesex County Cup – The first round of the Middlesex County Cup is on Sunday 10th September, the first weekend of the MHRML season.  If the draw has not been published by Monday 21st August please be aware we may have to change some fixtures.

Golden Boot – following the issues that arose last season, and the unnecessary angst that occurred, the League have decided that they will not be running a Golden Boot competition for the published age groups.

Regards

League Update 10.08.2017 – Registrations

Dear Member Clubs

Registrations Update

Can I ask you, as a matter of urgency, to chase up your teams and submit the required information for registrations.

With 6 days to go until the first cut off date there are still 25 clubs who are yet to submit a single player.

Without an influx the first cut off date is at risk, and if all clubs leave this activity until the last date there is a very real risk that clubs will not have enough players registered for the first weekend of the season, and will not therefore be able to play.

Whilst I appreciate that this is peak holiday time, the cut off date has been knows since the AGM in June.

Thank you to the 3 teams who have advised me they have a delay, and the reason why, and to those who have started their registrations.  This still leaves many others who have yet to start the process.

By leaving things to the last minute additional work is being created and unnecessary pressures are building up where this need not happen.

I thank you in advance of an anticipated increase in registrations imminently.

Regards

Alison

League Update: 06:08:2017 – Key Dates

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:-

Registrations

The first cut-off date for registrations to be with registrations@midherts.com 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

Handout Meeting

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.

Kind regards

Alison
