Postponements: If a league game is postponed due to a cup match, could the club involved please make the other club they were due to play aware of the postponement, as well as Angela Bennett.

Double Header Rules:

These are played as two seperate games of 30 minutes each way. The first game counts as the "host" club's home game, therefore a different match return form must be filled in for each game, with players not featuring in the first game's squads able to take part in the second game, subject to the usual league rules on player qualification. Match return forms should still be exchanged before kick off of each game, but this can be done at any time until kick off.

The host club should pay the referee the normal match fee+travelling expenses with the visiting club responsible for the match fee only for the second game. The host club also has responsibility for provision of refreshments between games and at the conclusion of the second game. Half time breaks for each game should be minimal, but 15-20 minutes between games should be allowed for team talks and administration of the Match Return Cards.

At the Management Committee meeting of 8th December concern was expressed both at the number of letters received from clubs containing derogatory remarks about referees and reports from referees themselves concerning the conduct of club officials on match days. The Committee feels that a zero tolerance policy will be adopted towards breaches of the Code of Conduct which will be enforced with immediate effect.

1) Where there is a technical area, the following will apply:

i. A maximum of SEVEN people (manager, physio and five substitutes) are allowed to occupy the technical area.

ii. All occupants must stay within the confines of the tech area and remain seated. Only one person has the authority to convey technical instructions at one time and return to their position after giving instructions.

iii. The Coach and other officials must remain within the technical area, except in special circumstances (eg. when a referee allows a physio to enter the field of play to treat an injured player).


(iv) above applies even if there is no technical area on a park pitch.

Referees are being instructed to take a hard line and any Club offending will be reported to their County Association.

2) Clubs are reminded of their responsibility for the behaviour of their spectators at all times.
Reports of abuse received from referees will result in heavy fines.

3) Club officials found guilty of breaches of the code of conduct will receive lengthy bans IN ADDITION to any punishment meted out by their County FA.

4) Clubs consistently receiving low sportsmanship marks will receive a warning, and if their average does not improve they will be fined.

If we are unable to find a referee centrally able to do your game, you must try to get your own. The guidelines are as follows:

When appointing a referee, the referee MUST NOT be associated with the club in any way, ie. not a relative of any player or officer of the club, or any past or current member of the club. The appointed referee must also be a current registered member of a County FA.

If the only person you can find willing to officiate fails to meet the above criteria, you MUST inform both the opposition and Referees' Secretary.

Would ALL clubs (especially those in Kent) try to supply the name of at least one referee willing to do games in our League. Names of those already refereeing regularly for us are not required. Easiest way to do this is to call a few refs in your area when you receive your County Handbook. Clubs with home draws in the FA Cup also shouldn't miss the opportunity of talking to the appointed match officials if they're not refs who regularly do our games.
