ADL Committee Minutes - March 2015

Minutes of the Aylesbury & District Football League Management Committee Meeting held on 

Wednesday 4th March 2015 at Bucks CC Sports & Social Club.

Officers Present: P.Rice (chair), A.Skeggs, M.Pollard, M.Thoday, M.Harrison, S.Howard, K.Saw &N.Sabitini.

Apologies:A.Swain, D.Bayliss& M.Stevens.

Peter welcomed to the meeting, Lisa Welling from the Berks & Bucks. Lisa was the League’s new liaison officer and was here to talk about the Respect Programme. But before that Peter gave the committee his feedback from the FA Conference he had attended recently.

  • All sports participation was down 11% over the last 7 years.

  • Charter Standard League – what are the advantages for the League.

  • Football Future – it was realised that league volunteers were getting older and there wasn’t many new people coming forward and so Leagues were folding. Around the country Saturday and Sunday Leagues were merging to protect the leagues from folding.

  • Football Hubs – Where locations had a number of pitches, one of these pitches was being turned into a synthetic pitch. The income from this supports the maintenance of the grass pitches.

  • Referees – Qualifying and training arrangements would be changing from September.

  • Coaching – There were opportunities for coaching courses to be run for all managers.

  • Discipline – This differs around the country. Video evidence is no longer required as supporting evidence. The FA was keen to start applying Ground Bans for anyone abusing the referee. It would be up to the local FA to enforce the suspension if the League thought it had been broken.


Lisa Welling then did a quick SWOT analysis of the League so she had a better understanding of the League. She outlined the Respect requirements, some of which the League already perform. But it was important that all clubs supported the principle and the County were keen to talk to clubs about this. As for being a Charter Standard League, you needed 60% of the clubs to be Charter Clubs; currently we were at 19%. Following her presentation Lisa left the meeting. Next month the County would be attending to demonstrate the Whole Game system.


The meeting then commenced.The minutes of 4th February were agreed as a true record.


Matters Arising:

  • Oakley v Bucks CC decision reversed due to new information.

  • Long Crendon still waiting for a B&B decision on their player assault.

  • Subsidiary Cup – 12 teams for the Junior Cup, but only 7 for the Senior Cup. Medals would be awarded. 


Treasurer’s Report:

  • Income since last meeting £170 (fines £155, photo id £15). Expenditure £0. Balance stands at £15,710.

  • A club deposit was refunded to AFC Victoria. Deposits now £4,975.

  • The trophies had been ordered. Despite ordering 40 extra trophies for the leagues, the price had been kept the same at £2,266. The cups were slightly less than the previous year at £1,204, a saving of £48.

  • Despite a request in the December minutes for the Divisional and Cup trophies to be returned early, four still had yet to be returned.
