Letter of Explanation.

NB Bedgrove Dynamos and Oving have now swapped after they agreed to do so

With the Committee agreeing that the last day of acceptance into the league for season 2018-2019 was Monday 30th July, interviews subsequently took place that evening, with Fairford Leys and Stone Utd being recommended for acceptance.

As a result 4 somewhat smaller divisions were sorted out, covering 39 teams.

This information was subsequently released on Thursday 2nd August, having been agreed at the Committee meeting the evening before at their monthly meeting.

Over the week-end, Saturday 4th/Sunday 5th both last season’s Premiership winning team Aylesbury Dynamos and the runners-up Haddenham, wrote explaining they were unable to fulfil their obligations, and would have to withdraw.

Following numerous e-mails/telephone conversations over the last 24 hours the Committee has therefore agreed there should be 3 larger divisions, as attached.

These divisions have been drawn up strictly on where teams were placed as at the end of the 2017/2018 season, as far as possible, bearing in mind that under FA rules you can NOT have 2 teams from the same club in the same division.

With reference to cup entries, these will be drawn later this week, and hopefully sent out prior to the week-end.

On behalf of the Committee it is fully realised that not everyone will be happy with these decisions, but with a little over 3 weeks until the commencement of the season, the administration still to be carried out, plus family holidays still to be taken, hopefully everyone will see it’s the best solution to a position none of us hoped would happen.


Peter Rice. League Chairman.

6th January. Message from the Chairman 

Reminder re Officials.

With the second half of the season about to begin (weather permitting), now is the time to remind everyone of their responsibilities re officials.



All officials are aware of their responsibilities prior to the match commencing.

As part of their DNA they all know they should arrive at the ground anywhere between 30/45minutes prior to commencement in order a ground/boot check be made.

They have all been reminded that they then should be in the officials’ room anywhere between 15/30 minutes prior to kick off, particularly on council grounds, in order for the necessary administration details can take place, which includes cross-checking shirt numbers to players.

Should, for whatever reason the official fail to appear at their allotted time, the teams should report it on the back of their form, sent to the registration Secretary.





We need to remind you that YOU are responsible for welcoming the official (Not the other way round).

At least 15 minutes prior to the start of the match, two (pumped up) match balls are to handed to the official, as well as your completed teamsheet Completed teamsheets means that ALL boxes are completed prior to handing the paperwork over to the official.Club Colours, First Aider, Club Assistant etc.

For cup matches their match fee is to be offered, and 50% claimed back from the opposition.



League match fee to be offered at least 15 minutes prior to kick off together with your completed teamsheet. Completed teamsheet means that ALL boxes are completed prior to handing the paperwork over to the official. Club Colours, First Aider, Club Assistants etc.



Wherever possible, especially on a cold winter’s day, a half-time drink is always appreciated by ALL officials

Please be aware that ALL officials registered to the Berks and Bucks FA have recently been reminded about their paperwork, and to ensure it is completed correctly.


Finally, please do NOT forget that failure to deal with all the above carry separate fines.

3. Results.
Text responds as introduces this season are as per.

Finally IF there are any questions, please do NOT hesitate to get in touch.


This email is sent on behalf of the League Registration Secretary.


I'm away from Sunday for a week so I won't be reading any emails. Please register all players as normal and submit them on the WGS and post registration forms, they will be pending until the following week but you will be able to play them as I have the date and time  you put them on WGS (so no cheating I will find out).


Can I remind you all that you CAN NOT sign a player on the day for any cup games, they need to be registered 7 days before. However Berks and Bucks games are by mid day on the Friday.

Transfer requests are as previous years a signed transfer form from both team secretaries and player along with £15 transfer fee, then through the WGS request a notice of approach and if I've received your completed form I will transfer them.

Please remember to score your ref on your team sheet and any scores under 50 need to have a letter sent to Kevin Saw with your reason why. Rule 13H.

So far I'm happy with this process on WGS so we shouldn't have any issues,  if your not sure if a player is registered just check on WGS.



ADL Registration secretary


This email is sent on behalf of the League Chairman.

As there appears to be confusion as to how many substitutes are allowed in ADL cup matches, please note the following.
ALL Aylesbury and District League Cup matches are 3 from 5 substitutes (non-repeatable). This covers the Tom Sparkes League, Sheffield Jackman, and Reserve Cups as well as the Thomas Field Shield.
Whilst writing can we also make it clear that the home team is responsible for the pitch costs, and the referee fee. Whilst the home team may claim back 50% of the referees costs back from their opponents, they may NOT claim back anything from their opponents for their pitch costs.
Should this information not be clear, you are invited to contact the Chairman and/or treasurer.
