Players that are not registered – a warning

August is approaching, which means that the end of this season is not now that far away. Promotion and relegation issues will start to become the focus of attention for many. Sadly though there may be a handful of clubs whose admin is going to let the club down. I am referring to the sluggishness that a few clubs show in registering players, and/or playing players whose registration then proves to be problematic due to infringing existing and published ECB guidelines. Life could be made easier for a lot of League officials and Club officials if the sections of the League’s Official Handbook were read and understood by Club officials before putting teams out on the field of play.
There is one matter of an under-age player that played in a match recently that will be dealt with in due course by the Management Sub-Committee.
However, what may be of more significance are the following currently outstanding player registrations.
May 19th: J.Druitt (Copdock & O.I. IO) away to Little Bardfield Village.
June 30th: K.Cooper (Elmstead II) home to Eight Ash Green.
July 7th: two unknown players (Coggeshall III) away to Halstead III.
July 7th: one player (Tuddenham) away to Walsham le Willows.
July 7th: Joseph Rinaldi (Haverhill II) away to Abberton & District.

Doubtless this weekend’s matches will add to this list. So if you have players to register, I would suggest that it is done as fast as possible.

Pleased to report that most of the above have now been dealt with, but why does it need such a reminder to get clubs to do it???

Also, there were a number of reports that were sent over the last two weekends but were not received by me. Again, please can you check the list that I distributed and resubmit using the old style form.
Many thanks.
