2018 Season now being planned
Just as one season finished preparations for the next start. Forms for registering teams for the Federation Leagues for 2018 have now been issued. All clubs wishing to enter one or more teams in any of the Federation 2018 leagues are asked to complete a registration form with all the requested information and return it to the League Manager no later than 31st December this year. Draft league fixtures will then be produced and issued no later than the end of January leaving a month for team captains to negotiate any changes before publication of the final fixture lists at the end of February. The 2018 season will run from Tuesday 3rd April with all games to be completed no later than Sunday the 30th September.
There are no significant changes to the league rules planned for 2018 although at the Federation AGM in November it was agreed that the current arrangements for catering at league matches will change with all players, both home and visitors, making their own arrangements for lunch with the home team providing hot drinks as appropriate.
