Quainton had sent in a question which Liz said she would take back to the office to find out the answer.
Several questions were asked by Committee members, mostly concerning lack of communication about suspensions of players and clubs. Liz offered training on the Whole Game System and told the Committee that although it was not completely operational, when it was it would be much more efficient.
Peter asked why our premier league were in the intermediate cup, when other counties had theirs in the junior cup. A competitions co-ordinator is to be appointed who will look into this.
Lisa had come to the meeting to discuss the decline of 11-a-side teams. She told the Committee that there was funding available to help generate interest and wanted ideas that would engage people to join/create football teams. There was some discussion about this, including the possibility of setting up a summer league.

Can we please remind Secretaries/Managers that when registering ANY player
on a Saturday, you need their passport photo, (in order to verify who they
are), and your opponents signature on the back.
Should that signature NOT take place, you run the risk of playing an
unregistered player. Your opponents have the option of refusing to start the match, until the signature is carried out, which could mean the match starting late, and a
3. If you have issues with, or complaints against, your opponents under NO circumstances should your opponents be contacted in any way, shape, or form after the match has finished. The correct procedure is to contact the League Secretary (copy to the League Chairman), with your complaint, in order the issue can be discussed as to whether or not the league/the club/or any individual player wishes to pursue a potential misconduct charge with their local Football Association.
This should be carried out within 7 days of the match being played.
Should you receive correspondence from your opponents after the match has finished, please do NOT respond other than contacting the League Secretary (copy to the league Chairman), in order that the local football association can be informed, for a potential misconduct charge to be issued.
Again this should be carried out within 7 days of the correspondence being received.
Should you feel the appointed referee on the day has NOT carried out his duties in accordance with the laws of the game and FA guidelines, your first contact should be with the League Referees Secretary who will advise accordingly.
Can we remind clubs/teams yet again that referees are NOT accountable to the ADL, but rather to their registration body, their local Football Association.
Again this should be carried out within 7 days of the match being played.
Should there be any physical violence involved in any of your matches, then your first contact should be the police, who then will make a decision on whether a criminal charge will be issued.
The referee is the person who informs the local football association, who on your behalf will issue any misconduct charges as they see fit.
Hopefully that clarifies the correct procedure.
