Warm-up fixtures announced in preparation for forthcoming cup competitions

Now that we have confirmed our plans for a streamlined cup competition programme that will run in the absence of the possibility to complete a full league programme, the L & C has announced warm-up fixtures in preparation for the competitive fixtures. More information on this, as well as other updates, can be found below.

  1. League fixtures for every team on the 3rd April have been released. They are league games to be used as a warm up so teams don’t go into the cups on 10th April without having played. We have saved everyone a job arranging friendlies. Referees will be appointed as normal by the referee’s secretary. All normal procedures such as confirmation, referee payment by BACs, completion of result texts, match sheets, team stats and refs marks are to be followed. The games are voluntary, so if for any reason you do not want a match that day, contact Malcolm Kershaw fixtures@landc.org.uk.
  2. The deadline for ensuring all match sheets, team stats, refs marks and payments are in is Thursday 11th March. After that the cup draw will be made with those who have complied included.
  3. The preparation for the resumption of football continues, the cup rules and competition format were issued yesterday. Note the deadline for registration has been brought forward to the end of February (rule 4) and squad eligibility is in rule 5. Any queries on registrations to Keith Marsden registrations@landc.org.uk please.
