PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ALWAYS ASK TO SEE THE PLAYER REGISTRATION SHEET BEFORE EACH MATCH. NOT CHECKING MAY COST YOU A FINE OF £25. DO NOT START A MATCH IF THE OPPOSING MANAGER DOES NOT HAVE IT.
To assist - below is a step by step guide to arranging changes which we hope will make this procedure less complicated, easier to administer and, ultimately, result in the smoother running of the league for both managers and league administrators:What do I do if I want to have a match date changed?
(1) Contact the opposing manager and advise them that you intend to submit a request for a change and identify the new date you wish to play on which should be the ealiest possible (i.e. if it's possible to bring the date forward then do so)(2) Both team managers requesting any changes should complete the postponement screen and provide sufficient information for the fixtures secretary to make a decision - showing clearly the reasons and new date requested.
(3) Both managers will receive an e-mail with the details of the request when it is submitted for their information.(4) The fixtures secretary will review the request and reply, either approving or rejecting the request. In the event of the request being approved the new date will automatically be changed on the website. In the event of the request being rejected the reasons will be shown and the match will be expected to be played in line with the original date.
(5) A copy of the postponement acceptance or rejection will be e-mailed simultaneously to both managers for their information.(6) No further action will then be required by either manager other than to play the game on the date approved.
(7) In the event of a match being unable to be played on the day because of unavoidable reasons such as weather or pitch conditions, both sides should normally complete and submit the postponement giving the reason and new date proposed. Providing a postponement is received this will normally be acceptable, however it is important that managers check to make sure the postponement has been requested and the date of the game rescheduled. Failure to submit a postponement at all will result in both clubs being fined.I trust this arrangement assists.
Fines which are outstanding are still required to be paid as the requirement for both teams to submit requests is included in the League Rules which were agreed at the AGM in July 2014
