First fixtures of new season now available

With just over a week to go until the big kick-off, the first month of fixtures are available. They come with the caveat that some teams won’t play on home soil for the first few weeks because the requirements related to Covid-19 have not been met at some grounds. This, and other important items, are included in the latest update for all club secretaries.

  1. Fixtures in all divisions, starting on the 19th Sept up to and including the 24th October are now showing on Full Time. 17 venues are marked as unavailable on Full Time during this period. Clubs who play their home games at these venues will not have any up to the 24th October. They have been marked unavailable is because pitches and/or toilet facilities are not open. The league’s position on grounds without facilities, is that they must have toilets. Available venues will be heavily utilised until the position changes, and we will be unable to stick to the usual home/away format. As always, any fixture queries to Malcolm Kershaw fixtures@landc.org.uk.
  1. Team sheets are being distributed by committee members. I have added the new instructions for match sheets, referee reports and referee confirmation/payment to this page – https://landc.org.uk/secretary-reference/. These new documents are necessary for this season and are important so please read.
  1. The new instructions will be featured in a Zoom EGM on Thursday 17th Sept, 7PM. Please note the time/date, the agenda will be issued on 10th September.
  2. Clubs are reminded that you must have enough players registered (approved) with the league before your first fixture, and all your Covid-19 precautions are to be in place and followed.
