The website has now been updated with the new League Handbook and League Rules for Season 2014/15 as discussed at the Induction Meeting on Thursday 21st August 2014, and these are now available to download - see Documents & Links > Information.
Since the Induction Meeting the League has had no alternative but to revise the Game Plan for the Under 9's and 10's and therefore the fixtures that were on the website have been hidden to be changed. The revised fixtures will be visable again on Sunday evening 31st August 2014.
It was with the best intentions that the League Management Committee decided on the Game Plan purely to provide every team in the Under 9's and 10's with more variety of quality 'non result driven' games in the first part of the Season before starting competitive games in their own age group, mindful that we had only received 7 x Under 10's team applications.
One of the issues that has arisen since the meeting is that we have received a few New Player Registration forms for 7 years olds wishing to register in the Under 9's and this of course would not be permitted within the current arrangements because an 7 year old can officially register for an Under 9's team but they would not be permitted to play against Under 10's.
This being the case the League has decided to split the Under 9's and 10's back into their own age groups.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused but at the same time, I hope you all understand the reason for the changes.
As already communicated, the league offered to photograh all players that were registered last season.
