Present: P Rice, M Griffin, Mrs M Harrison, N Sabatini, K Saw, A Skeggs R Small Mrs M Stevens,M Thoday.
Apologies were received from K Dunnings, T Munt
The Minutes: of the meeting of 1 September 2021 were agreed
Matters Arising: There is one version of the rules online, but the Thomas Field Shield needs to be added.
Three of the four cups say the away team pays the referee, but the Thomas Field Shield still has the teams paying 50/50 to the referee. This will be a proposed rule change for next season
The Cup Final dates have been agreed but there is a large increase in costs for the hire of the venue.
Wendover have been asked to change their blue marked lines to white, to make them easier to see, they have not yet replied.
There was a complaint about the behavior of some spectators at a recent game, this has been dealt with.
A report has been received of a strong smell of cannabis coming from one of the changing rooms after a game, which is of particular concern as the area is also used by children. The Safeguarding Officer will investigate.
Ayletico have withdrawn from the league, insufficient players.
