We have received a response to our letter about our premier teams having to play in a higher division in the County Cup.  Hopefully the matter will be resolved for next season.

Registration Secretary’s Report

Richard Gilmore has paid his outstanding debt to Long Marston

Raymond Buck has repaid his fine, now eligible to play

Josh Dance is eligible to play for Oving

In light of the fact that The South Midlands League have stopped all de-registrations, the rule presently in the ADL handbook will have to be re-worded for season 2017/18 

The Committee under Rule 8C have allowed Liam Kehoe to sign for Long Marston from TringTown AFC, and Carl Clay from Winslow to New Zealand. 

Tetsworth signed a player on the day of a cup match fined £50 rule 5 match awarded to Bucks CC Reserves

8th October 

Bedgrove Utd late team sheet res – fined £10 rule 11A

New Zealand no ref mark– fined £5 rule 13H

22nd October 

Stone late team sheet and no ref mark  fined £10 rule 11A and £5 rule 13H

29th October 

New Zealand no ref mark – fined £5 rule 13H

Because Bucks CC have been wearing dark/black shirts we now HAVE to monitor the colours and if teams omit to put down their colours deliberately or accidently the referee could refuse to play & we would have no checks over kit colours- therefore 'failing to complete referee team sheet' has to be monitored . Can managers please ensure that team sheets are filled in correctly, from team colours, which competition, through to the refs name and mark, or fines may be imposed for incorrect filling of the team sheet.

Referees Secretary’s Report

74 of the 77 games played have been covered by a referee, but there are still problems getting referees for games.

There is a referees course starting in December, but no-one as yet has applied to register.  Half the cost of the course will be covered by ADFL if the qualified referee gives one year’s commitment to ADFL.  The course will be held in Aston Clinton, starting December 14th, at a cost of £145.

Any Other Business

* ALL games being played on Saturday 12th November WILL be preceded by a one minute silence for Remembrance Day.

* There are concerns about the changing rooms at St Johns Sports and Social Club.. There is no running water and the toilets are unusable.  The secretary will inform AC Meadowcroft, and Stone Utd that they are NOT to use the ground until the work which is ear-marked for improvement has been carried out and inspected. 

* Following the AGM, as Bucks CC said they had lost most of their first team players, the ADFL committee agreed that they could be demoted one division this season if they agreed to play no more than three of their first team players in any one of their matches.  This was agreed upon, and this has been done with other teams in the past, to allow clubs to survive.

Subsequently Bucks CC made a complaint to Berks and Bucks FA to say that as this was not a written rule it could not be enforced and they wanted to play as many of their first team players as were available.  Berks and Bucks FA have agreed with Bucks CC despite the objections of the committee, so unfortunately the option of voluntary demotion will not be open to other teams that may be struggling in future years.

The meeting closed at 9.10

The next meeting was arranged for Wednesday 7 December 2016 at Aylesbury Tennis Club
