To All Club Secretaries


Dear All

This is designed to save you and your club a lot of time and effort as well as MONEY!

The vast majority of you are not having any problems but some of you seem to be having
major problems this crib sheet is for your benefit!!

Please pass this on to the people running your teams.
Some of you have fixture Secretaries/ team managers who don’t know that they should be
phoning in the result. Someone must tell us or we will never know. In ALL MCFL games, the
HOME team MUST phone or text the result in by 5.15pm. Mid week matches straight after
the match.

For matches not under our jurisdiction (such as County Cups or any external Competition),
please phone in the result, whether you are home or away. Especially if you are not playing a
team from this League we also do not need your clubs life history we just need to know-
Division or Cup then Home team and score and away team and score not we won 3-2 and
then assume we can guess what club you are from you can also text the result in.

Your opponents and the match officials will not just turn up at your ground unless you tell
them and you need to tell them at the beginning of the week, not at the end. Your opponents
need to move at least 11 players and their manager to your ground. They need to know what’s
going on so they can plan in advance!

For clarification it’s your responsibility as the home team to tell them not the leagues we
put the information on the league web site to make your life easy!

Your match official(s) also need to know. We have enough games going on that if you can’t
be bothered to tell them about your match, we have plenty of games we CAN and will move
them onto.


                                              1
To clubs who have found out on the Monday that the appointed official is unavailable:
It’s no good bleating to us on a Friday that the match official is unavailable. Let Peter
Kingham know as early as possible so he can appoint another.

Make the people running your teams are aware of League Rule 17 – the League has the final
say on who is playing in it, club and player wise – if you abuse the match officials, we can
and will remove both the player and the club!

No player can compete in this league without an ID card an ID card is valid for five years a
players registration is only valid for one year, hence at the AGM you returned the cards to the
league.

No league officer will ever give permission to play a player without one.
The rule is simple: NO ID CARD - NO PLAY.

Any team who goes “We don’t bother checking ID cards” that normally means they are
playing ringers and don’t want you to check their cards, if you play a ringer and he causes an
injury to your opponent, your clubs insurance will be null and void…………….. Inform the
referee whilst he will not take action at least he knows there is an issue and he will inform us,
ID cards are there for your protection.


If you have any questions ask the relevant League Officer!

Yours in sport

                                                2
Home Teams

Monday
If you are the home team, phone your opponents and confirm the fixture. If the league sends
out an e-mail giving details of the fixture that’s a bonus, it’s the home team’s job to confirm
the fixture not the leagues, we put the information on the web site look at it!

Do not phone any league officer and go “I haven’t had an e-mail about the fixture” you
looked at the web site to start off with the information is all on the web site.

Make sure your opponents know where you are playing & what colours you will be playing in
and also the type of pitch especially if it’s an artificial one. THE AWAY TEAM ALWAYS
CHANGES. Players must not wear a black top – this colour is for referees only. (If
you want to be a referee, contact Peter Kingham or Julian Bauer)

If they have e-mail, let them know where to find the map. Most maps are on the mitoo web
site.

Remember to ask them to confirm that they have received your e-mail. Request a read receipt.
If they don’t have e-mail, post a letter to them!

If you have changed grounds tell the league!

If your opponents have e-mail and you choose this method, copy in Eddy Mee (The
Disciplinary Secretary). That way, if he gets it, so should your opponents!
On your message request a read receipt!

Contact the referee and his/her assistants (if appointed). Remember that you MUST speak
personally to the officials. If you use the e-mail method, ask for confirmation that he/she has
received it. Again request a read receipt!

Wednesday
If you haven’t heard back from your e-mails, phone your opponents and referee and confirm
all details. Also tell the Discip Secretary (Eddy Mee) if clubs have not confirmed or The
Referees Secretary (Peter Kingham) if there are any problems with officials.

If you left messages and they haven’t phoned you back, tell the LEAGUE!
Once again, The Discip Secretary (Eddy Mee) for Clubs, The Referees Secretary (Peter
Kingham) for referees!

If you have not contacted your match official(s) by Tuesday, they will be removed from your
fixture!

Friday
Make sure you have a team and pitch and changing rooms.

Saturday
Get to your ground on time – make sure you have a pitch, goal nets & corner flags.
Also ensure you have your kit, a first aid kit, a first aider present, 2 match footballs suitable
for use and most importantly, your team!

Ensure that someone is available to greet your visitors. Find your opponents and the referee.
You know your ground they might not. It could be the first time they have been to your
ground.



                                                 3
At least 30 minutes before kick-off, hand your team sheet into the referee. Make sure it is
correctly filled in and completed with ALL the required details. Give your opponents your
photo ID cards – REMEMBER, if you have no ID card, you cannot use that player!

Do not abuse or pass dissenting comments or remarks to your match officials.

Kick-off on time

Pay the referee at the end of the game!

The Match Official is there is enforce the Laws of the Game – he is not there to be abused or
insulted by your players – if you do, we will not allocate officials to your fixtures!

ALL breaches of League Rules WILL BE reported to the League by match officials.



Results
The home team MUST phone or text 07867 682822 to report the result.
We need the results by 5:15pm at the very latest. After this time we will contact your
opponents and/or the referee for the result. We do not know why you haven’t phoned in. All
we know is we have had no phone call. A fine will be issued automatically. Only when we get
the referees report will we find out the reason for the late result – it may be an injured player,
or your opponents turned up late. If we find out and it’s not down to you, the fine will be
cancelled!

If you are kicking off early, phone the result in when the match finishes- it’s done!

Don’t phone the Result in from your changing room as with all the background noise we can’t
hear you also find out who you have just played prior to phoning in the result it’s annoying
listening to you asking someone else “What’s the lot we just played”

If you are playing in an external competition like a County Cup or the Cherry Reds Trophy,
you must phone us and give us the result - especially if your opponents are not from this
league! It is us as a league that advises the County FA’s County Cup Results.

If in doubt phone or text the result in regardless!

Finally

Read the handbook - All of this is covered. If you are not sure of anything, ask the relevant
league officer (if it’s a fixture question, speak to the Fixtures Secretary)

We are here to help, we will when we can!


Web Sites

To see your fixtures, league tables, results and details of your players use this link
http://www.football.mitoo.co.uk/News.cfm?LeagueCode=MDX2011&NB=0
go in via the main map which is on http://football.mitoo.co.uk/fmMap.cfm or failing that use
www.football.mitoo.co.uk

Regardless of how you get there, you need to click onto our league name, which is the
Middlesex County Football League. Make sure you click on the relevant season.

When you first go into our league home page on Mitoo you will see a box with:
News down Load Documents & Contacts, any information that we wish to convey to all clubs
is on the NEWS page.

Check the News page regularly. For instance, details of the League Council meeting have
been on this site for weeks. This is also the page that allows you to download league
documents such as Transfer Forms, Match Report forms, New Players Registration forms etc.

The date bars pull down the fixtures/result for all games on that date. If you are only
interested in a particular division or competition, use the abbreviations at the top middle.
When you run your mouse over any of these it explains exactly what you are looking at!

If you are already using mitoo and have saved it as a favourite, do not phone me and tell me
you are looking at last season- the reason is: YOU NEED TO CHANGED IT TO 2012/2013

Top right hand side of the home page has three items:
Log In/ Home/Clubs
To convert the referee’s number into a name you need to click on log in.
Type your name then in the password box use: ft8
This then brings up a separate section, which has referees. When you click on that it, it gives
you the full contact details of the match officials.

To see your clubs registered players you need to ask Warren McMahon for your clubs unique
password. The unique password changes every season the only password that remains the
same is ft8.

Only when you have registered players will you be able to see your player’s details.


                                                7
Underneath the calendar is a box with “suspended players” check this box if your club has a
player in this it means he is suspended & has a suspension against his name he cannot play.

If you know of a suspension and it is NOT on here please let us know do not assume that
because we are not showing a suspension we will not find out about it he will still not be
eligible to play.

If your player is suspended and you play him, you will automatically lose the match.

The entire league is on “Match day suspensions” this means 21 days after the event the player
will automatically get at least a one day match ban, this ban will be for the team he was
playing for, so if it’s a first team player it’s one match ban for the first team, also note if the
player gets a suspension for his Saturday or Sunday team under the new FA guide lines the
ban is for that team and that team only!

So a Saturday ban he can play Sundays or vice versa……….. the FA Discipline handbook is
also on the web site.

When you click on clubs, this brings up all the clubs in the league.
If you click on the club name, this gives you contact details that we have on the club - you
need to check the information we have on your club- if it’s wrong tell us!

The web site is also showing a calendar. If any date is in white, this means that something is
going on - you need to click on the date and find out what it is.

If in doubt read the handbook or ask!


Yours in sport
