Communication

The NECSL Executive will use both e-mail and post, when appropriate, to notify clubs of decisions, developments etc.

The NECSL Executive will not deal with correspondence from managers. All issues to be addressed by the NECSL Executive must come through club secretaries to the League Secretary.

Use the NECSL Contact List for Club Secretaries and Managers for reference purposes.

Notify NECSL if there are any changes to personnel on the contact list.

Consult the NECSL Constitution & Rule Book.

Clubs will also require the S.F.A.I. Constitution & Rule Book. Club secretaries should have the booklet at their disposal.

Results must be phoned or text in to 0864016048 on the day of the game before 6.00 p.m. Results can also be emailed to Fixtures Secretary.

It is essential that within clubs there are good communication links between secretaries and managers.

Practicalities

Ensure all players are registered, insured and paid up members.

If pitch is deemed unplayable by home club both NECSL (087 7979354) and opposition must be informed immediately.

Before travelling, always contact opposition to confirm game is on.

Ensure that there will be no colour clash between the teams.

Arrive on time.

Both teams should each have at least two match balls and a first aid kit available on match day.

Be aware of possible fixture clashes with school trips, communion & confirmation ceremonies.

In the interest of fair play clubs should ensure they fulfill all fixtures.

Girls can participate in boys’ leagues up to and including Under 14.

The age eligibility rules applicable to boys also apply to girls. Girls must play within their own age group.
