There are to be two more webinars about the Whole Game System on 9 & 17 May and on 22 May there will be a demonstration from midday to 8.00 p.m. at Aylesbury FC, Hayward Way.
An email was received from Wingrave FC with observations on the last season. They have received a reply and their remarks have been noted.
An email was received from Chichester University who want clubs’ views on referees. This has been circulated to clubs.
Alan Penman has offered Aylesbury FC as a football ground for next season – anyone interested contact him.
The rule 10G we have proposed has to be amended. Should the league wish to use repeated substitutes the rules needs to be either three (3) from three (3) or five (5) from five (5), as you cannot limit the number of individuals used as repeat substitutions. Therefore the league propose we use 5 from 5 repeat substitutions for league and all cup matches.
A pilot scheme has been proposed of temporary dismissal, with a player sin-binned for 10 minutes. ADFL have decided not to take part in this scheme.
