All Clubs Meeting

A meeting of all club chairmen, managers and club captains was held last night at Badgers Sports Ground. John Moules, League Vice Chairman, gave a presentation on Respect in which he highlighted some areas which will become the subject of match official enforcement for the present season.

Over £30,000.00 (Thirty Thousand Pounds) was paid by SCEFL and Invicta clubs last season in discipline fines. That's 30,000 that could have been spent on club improvements but ended up just being thrown away.
And the result of this? Not a single refereeing decision was changed.

FIFA and UEFA as well as The FA have all issued a directive to match officials at all levels of the game that the laws of the game are to be strictly applied when it comes to dissent and the use of foul and/or abusive language. Be warned.

John drw particular attention to the behaviour and language of people in the technical area and our own referees have all been directed to deal with this under the laws of the game (ie. red card for swearing).

Peter Hunter, one of our ground grading team, gave an update on the ground grading criteria. Clubs are now required to install a mesh grating or other protective barrier for gate persons who collect match day entry fees.

And finally, the draw for the first 2 rounds of the SCEFL Challenge Cup were made and are as follows:
