The start of the 2019/20 season is now only three weeks away and some critical deadlines are approaching. May I remind all club secretaries that you need to get your league team entries to me by this Thursday, 19th September. I will be preparing the league fixtures shortly after that date and it is hoped to publish these week commencing 23rd September.
Please note that, following the resetting of the league tables for the coming season, they have defaulted to teams based on promotion and relegation from last season. However this is NOT accurate and members are asked to ignore the data that is currently in those tables. Once the fixtures have been published then the league tables will be updated with the correct team entries.
I have already updated the nominated player lists with information that has been supplied to me by the clubs so far, but there are still a lot of empty spaces. If you are a club secretary and have not yet given me your nominated player lists, can you please do so as soon as possible, but certainly before the end of this month. Thankyou.
There are also lots of teams where I have not been given captains’ details. Once again, this information will be needed before the end of the month. I will also need captains’ consent to publish their data if they were not a captain last season.
