Clubs Folding:


Unfortunately it is with regret that we need to advise that Papillon (Premier Division) and Southford United (Division One) have both had to withdraw from the League.






Double Headers:


Due to the recent weather we are now at that stage of the season where in order to try to complete the league programme we will need to schedule double headers. For those of you who have not done these before I have listed below the main points to note:
* These consist of 2 games of 60 minutes (30 minutes each half).
* The first game is the first named teams home game.
* The second game is the second named teams home game.
* The match fee is £45 shared between both teams.
* Any discipline from one game does not count in the second game (even for red cards).
* Please complete two separate match reports forms on full time.
* You will also need to complete two separate team sheets.






Referees Promotions:


The committee are pleased to say that one of our referees, Luke Scottow, has achieved promotion from Level 7 to 6. Congratulations to Luke and best wishes for the future.






League Chairman Wins Award:


The League is pleased to announce that the League Chairman, Paul Connelly, has been recognised by Active Southend for his work in promoting football in Southend. At the awards ceremony held in November Paul was awarded the "Community Hero" award for 2017. Well done Paul!






Useful Information:


Each week the League receives a number of queries relating to various aspects of the League and the League Rules. Please review the details found on the "Useful Information" page of the website as many of the answers can be found by clicking here, but please note the following;
Fixtures - As the home team please ensure that you confirm the game with the away team and the referee as soon as possible and that if you want to request a free Sunday you need to give 6 weeks notice and are only allowed one per season, and,
Full Time - Please ensure that you complete the match report on Full Time as soon as possible after the game and by Wednesday at the latest, you need to include any yellow or red cards that your team receive and the referees mark should be out of 100.






Signing Players on the Day:


Following a couple of queries we thought that we would clarify the process for signing players on the day.
Any player whose details have not been registered on the WGS by 19.00 on the Friday before a match can only play if he has completed a Signed On The Day Form which is part of the team sheet. It is important that this is legible so it is probably best to complete this on the bottom (green) copy only so that you can copy this and send to Karen Andrews within two days of the match.
When a player is Signed On The Day, that player may not play again for your club until such time as your club have registered the player on the WGS, and your club has been notified via the WGS that his registration has been accepted. Result/Stats on Full Time cannot be entered for a match until the registration has been accepted on WGS. Any player who plays for your club again before this notification of acceptance has been received by your club will be regarded as an ineligible player.
A player signed on the day also has to sign the Player Registration Document before he can play again. The League Secretary has sent important information to all club secretaries regarding updating the club directory and full time information. This requires a response from all clubs by 25th August at the latest.
