ADL Committee Minutes - Dec 2014

Minutes of the meeting of Aylesbury and District Football League Management Committee held at 7.30 p.m. on Wednesday 3 December 2014 At Bucks CC Sports and Social Club

Present: P Rice(in the chair), Mrs M Harrison, M Pollard, K Saw, T Skeggs, Mrs M Stevens, M Thoday

Apologies were received from D Bayliss, S Howard, N Sabatini, A Swain.

The Minutes: of the meeting of  5 November 2014 were agreed.

Matters Arising: 

* The committee have responded to the query by Bucks CC about cancellation of games.

* Luke Montague has been reinstated following a directive from Berks and Bucks FA.  


* We have had a query about whether clubs can video games. If the team are playing open age football there is nothing to restrict videos being made or photos being taken. In fact the FA disciplinary team would actively encourage it.  Anyone being filmed or photographed has a choice to veto it and request them to stop. The footage should only be used within the club, or sent to the FA when disputing a red card offence.

* Tetsworth have sent an email complimenting the away team The Kennedy who swept the changing room then sat and had a beer with them after the game.  In the words of Tetsworth, there are teams out there that make Saturday football wonderful.

* The goalpost at St John’s Sports and Social Club cannot be used until it is repaired satisfactorily in accordance with Health and Safety regulations.  There will also be an inspection of the changing facilities.

* Berks and Bucks FA have raised a misconduct charge against Stone Magnets St Johns for failing to control their spectators. Rule E20

* Berks and Bucks FA have informed the committee that the clubs that fail to pay their fines within 14 days should be further fined and given a further 14 days to pay.  Failure to comply shall result in their fixtures being withdrawn.  The matches cannot be forfeited but have to be rescheduled when the clubs have cleared their debt.
