Amendments to the Laws of the Game 2012-13
Hot off the press are the latest amendments to the Laws of the Game for Season 2012-13. Please ensure all your Team Managers read these changes. The DCFA draw your clubs attention to the change in Law 4 - The Players' Equipment which may be subject to close scrutiny by the Referee - regarding tape used on socks.
Regards - ERIC GILSON
The fixtures for the 2012/13 season have now been released, with exception of the Under 15s which has had some last minute changes and will be released shortly. Where possible I have tried to avoid pitch conflicts. It is each managers responsibility to manage their fixtures for the season and changes can be made with agreement of your opposition and the 28 day notice period to the league fixtures secretary, although the fixtures Secretary's confirmation is then required.On each age group link (E.G. 'Under 12s' ) of the menu on the left you can see the current weeks upcoming fixtures for each division, or by clicking the 'Fixtures' link on the menu you can view 28 days worth of fixtures and also have access via a link to the whole seasons fixtures. Please report any anomalies as soon as possible.
