Due to the withdrawal of DFSWelbeck Welfare from U16 division 2, I have redrawn the U16 Primary Cup as Welbeck had a bye and this would have left one team with 2 byes. There is now only 1 fixture in the first round. Div 2 now only has 8 teams so I will be putting in more fixtures so you will now all play each other 3 times.
Under 15s Division 2 Fixture Changes
As WirksworthU15 are not taking part this year in division 2 I have cancelled all their fixtures and with only 8 teams now in this division I have added a 3rd fixture for teams to play i.e. you will now play each team 3 times in this division.
I have had to manually do this to keep the original fixtures so the likelihood for mistakes will be increased (though I hope all are OK). I have not been able to do potential clashes of pitches so you need to check your fixtures carefully and let me know any changes. I have included fixtures on the 22nd September for those who do not have cup matches. The fixtures only extend into early March so there should be plenty of scope to put in postponed fixtures later in the season. I have tried to fill in the spaces caused by Wirksworthcancellations but there may be some dates where the fixtures seem a little light.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Player Registration Cards
All Secretaries and Managers please note, players must be registered on the new secure online registration system and be showing 'Active' in order to play this weekend.
I will set each player to 'Active' under the following conditions :
The player has been previously registered to your team and is resigning for 2013/14. (the Club Secretary has to select the Team Name and Season '2013/14' before updating the player to do this)
The player has been previously registered to a RDYFL team, has moved to your team and you have uploaded a photograph for a new card.
The player is new, their details have been added to the system, a photograph has been uploaded and I have received a COPY of their Birth Certificate/Passport or Medical Card by email or post.
For players who had been previously registered and have been re-registered, for varying reasons, I only require their new Reg. No. and old Reg.No. (unless they are new to your team, then a photograph for the new card is required)
If your players are not all listed, contact your Secretary FIRST, to ensure they have been added to your team.
A number of new cards will be sent out shortly, however, due to a technical issue with the Card Printer, there will be a short delay in all the cards being supplied.
All managers should make a note of their players Registration Numbers as these are now required on the team sheet (which can be downloaded from the 'League', 'League Documents' menu above). Remember, only 'Active' players are eligible to play.
Any questions please contact me,

*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.

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.
