REPORTING RESULTS – Rule 11(A) and Other Information
A number of Member Clubs have to date, failed to add player information for a yellow card, two yellow cards or a red card either onto their Team Sheet or onto the “Full-Time” system.
All clubs were informed at the AGM that this was a new requirement for this season and future omissions by Member Clubs WILL incur a fine for incomplete team sheet / team details.
Therefore, if you are not sure that a player has been cautioned during the match then it is best to politely check with the referee after the match has finished.
REPORTING RESULTS – Rule 11(B)
Clubs are reminded that there is no requirement to telephone the match result as ALL results should be reported using the FA Full-Time SMS messaging service.
REFEREE MARKS – Rule 11(D) and Rule 13(H)
Please note that if Member Clubs mark a referee with 60 or under then a written explanation needs to be sent to the Referee’s Secretary (Alan Gould) within 6 days of the match.
These “low-mark” reports will always be sent on to E.C.F.A. so please consider carefully before giving a referee a low mark.
The standard “Referee Report Template for Low Marking” form (pdf) is available on the League website under Clubs / Documents.
