Fixtures, Cup Matches and the weather23/03/13 11:49AM

With the weather as it is I am assuming that all fixtures will be postponed this weekend. You do not need to let us know unless by some miracle your match is played.

I will be rescheduling all un-played primary cup matches to the 7th April along with the un-played quarter finals of the Secondary Cup and any semi-finals of the Secondary Cup that can be played. All outstanding Secondary Cup Semi-finals will be played on the 14th April.

The 31st March is Easter Sunday so I cannot force teams to play on that date, however if both teams agree then any cup matches can be brought forward to the 31st as long as you let me know and I acknowledge the change of date. Mid week matches can also be arranged if earlier than the scheduled date with agreement of both teams.

League matches should be rearranged as soon as you can with mid week matches if necessary, just let me know the changes.

Please work with me, I will not agree any dates that delay matches as we have specific dates for the finals (Jim has these). I cannot enter into long email conversations about any potential unfairness of the dates that I am proposing as I already have a huge amount of work just keeping up with the necessary changes.

The League are working on a possible extension to the season, but we need FA approval for this so for now assume that the final date is the 12th May. I will update you when I know if the season can be extended.

Let's hope for a change in the weather soon!

Primary Cup Semi Finals11/03/13 09:07PM

Following another round of postponements for the Primary Cup semi-finals, I have rescheduled these matches for Sunday the 24th March. All teams league fixtures who are involved in these matches have been postponed to accomodate the cup matches. Please check your fixtures and if you do not have a match then look to find one if you can and let me know. If the weather continues to be a problem please make every effort to reverse fixtures or find other venues, many of the matches were played this weekend.

We are now getting towards the business end of the season and some teams still have a lot of fixtures that do not have a date next to them. I need all teams to check their fixtures and let me know the new dates as soon as possible so that the fixtures can be updated. I will give 2 weeks and then I will start filliing in dates where I can see gaps.

It is very important that teams cooperate with each other, if you are having difficulty getting a fixture arranged then email me with a suitable date and I will put the fixture in. Opposing teams will need a very good reason for not being able to play. Matches should only be arranged for the same week with agreement of the opposition.

I need to remind teams that not having some of your players available is not a reason for not agreeing or playing a fixture. For 11 a side you can play with 8 players or more. If you cannot play then for a league match you will be charged with failing to fulfil a fixture and therefore subject to a fine and the match may also be awarded against you. In a cup match I will award the match to your opposition.

My thanks to the majority of managers that are following the rules and getting matches promptly rearranged.

Let's all hope for better weather as soon as possible.

Fixtures Secretary
