*URGENT* Fixture Changes and Primary Cup First Round Released
*URGENT* I have had to reset all the fixtures for U15 Division 1 so please check your fixtures carefully and let me know if you have any problems as soon as you can. There have also been some other necessary changes made so all teams should ensure that they check the matches especially for the 8th September, but then for all the fixtures and let me know changes as soon as possible. I remind everybody that I still do not have some venues or KO times, this is now urgent and any teams not complying will continue to be fined.
The first round of The Primary Cup for the 22nd September is now released, it is available to be viewed on the FA site and will be pulled through to the RDYFL site when Andy gets a chance with all the other duties that he has so be patient.
The cup draw has been made as last season as a typical tennis draw however this season I will only release one round at a time.
The second round of this cup will be on the 20th October so do not look to schedule any match changes on that day until you know your fate in the first round.

League 2013/14 Fixtures Released
The League fixtures are now released, please check your fixtures and let me know of any immediate problems. For those of you who have not given details of KO times and venues I need these details immediately so that Jim can organise his refs.The fixtures are now yours so check them carefully and let me know the changes that you need to make as soon as you can. I will release the first round of Primary Cup this weekend, this is due to be played on the 22nd September, if you do not have a fixture then you could put in a league fixture, just email the details to me.
Please ensure that you give me all the details i.e. The fixture and date, KO time and the division of your team as this reduces the time needed to change the fixture and saves me emailing you to confirm details.
Best of luck for the coming season

New Registration System - Update
Thank you for your feedback so far on the new online registration system.
There were a few bugs which have been resolved :
When a new player was added who was already registered to another team the incorrect contact information was being given for the original team.
There was an error in registering a new user name for the website.
Briefly all the teams and clubs were not being shown in the drop downs when adding/editing a player.
Please let me know if you experience any other problems.
PLEASE NOTE : You have to log in again to go to the Adminstrate Players screen,

New Online Player Registration Feature
AT LAST ! (I hear you say)
The new online player registration feature is available.
Secretaries and Managers, please follow these specific instructions :
1. The Club Secretary must log in first (you will be asked to update your account details, click 'Update'.) 2. The Club Secretary must select each existing player from the 'Edit Existing Player' list and change the 'Season' to 2013/14 and the team to the players team within the club, then click 'Update' to update the player. 3. Either the Secretary or the Manager (the players will NOT appear in the managers list until the Secretary has completed steps 1 & 2 above) can then update each players details including uploading a photo (click the link on the edit player page to add the photo, this should be done separately to updating the text details) 4. Players can be de-registered from the Club completely by clicking the De-registration checkbox. (The transfer box will work once the transfer window opens, more details nearer the time). 5. Players can be added by clicking the 'Add Player' option at the top of the page. Any player not shown in the 'Edit player' option should be added again (even if they were previously registered). The system will tell you if the player exists already. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE CAPITAL LETTERS APPROPRIATELY AND NOT JUST LOWERCASE ! (E.G. John Smith, NOT john smith and NOT JOHN SMITH. 6. The photo upload (.jpg ONLY) has a crop option where you HAVE to drag a selection box around the players face and shoulders ONLY. The photo upload does not work with IPhone or Ipad due to the crop facility (I may add a iphone/ipad upload in the future). 7. I decided against an upload feature for the copy Birth Certificates (at the moment) and therefore the address/email address to send them via is listed on the appropriate pages.
I've tested as far as possible, let me know if there are any teething problems please.Any Questions, please ask ! Cards will be printed and distributed soon, although existing cards are valid.
Player Registration System Update
Managers and Secretaries please note that during the implementation of the new online player registration system, teams will be considered to have met the leagues criteria and deadlines by providing the player information to their club Secretary by the relevant league deadline date (31st July etc..), in readiness for the Secretary to add the information to the league's system.
