4th FebPlease Read - Postponed Fixtures

Urgent Action Required
Due to the extremes of weather last weekend only 16 matches (out of over 130) went ahead. Teams are reminded that if your match was postponed due to the weather BOTH teams need to go to the section where you would enter your result and then note that particular fixture as postponed. There are a large number of matches where only one team has actioned this and far more where neither team has done so. Also, these re-arranged fixtures should be actioned within the 14 day period, according to the regulations, although the match itself can be set for any date mutually agreed before the last Monday in April. Teams must ensure that the relevant secretaries are advised on the new date for the match ASAP.

Match Start Times

Clubs must ensure times on the website clearly reflect the correct start time of the match. In the event the start time of a match is changed after it has been confirmed with your opposition you MUST ensure you contact them and get confirmation from them, in writing, that they have this new time. DO NOT assume that they will just happen to check the site to see if the time has changed as there is every likelihood they won’t. The onus is on you as the home team to make sure the information is correct and up to date.

Use of Offensive Language

It has been brought to my attention that offensive language was heard during a match in the vicinity of young players. I understand this can sometimes be due to player frustration but clubs are reminded that all players (and supporters) should demonstrate the highest standard of behaviour before, during and after a game. Please treat everyone involved in your game with the respect they deserve.

Match Report Forms

It was agreed at the ALM that we would no longer have match report books printed, in order to reduce our printing costs. Match report forms are available to download from the Information & Downloads section found under the Information tab at the top of the front page of our website. Please ensure your captains have sufficient copies of these to cover all their home league matches and that they allow their opposition to take a copy of the completed form after the match for their records. If you still have pages in your current match report book and wish to use these up please feel free to do so but once they have run out you will need to download forms as above.
