Cup & Plate Semi Finals + League closing date extension
The draw for the remaining semi finals in the League cup was made last evening and ALL the remaining semi finals for both League Cup and Plate competition games will be played on Saturday 14th March 2015. This may effect some current league fixtures, so the decision has been made that the closing date for fixtures to be played is now extended and games can be played up to and including Sunday 26th April (no later).
Postponements - what Home Managers MUST do
Where a game is postponed the home team manager must ensure that they inform PRIOR to the game, the Referee, the opposition, The Referees Appointmenst Officer and the Fixtures Secretary ( easily done with one email). Upon a game being postponed it is the home team managers responisbility to liaise with the opposition manager to arrange a new date. The new date MUST be submitted on the league re-arrangement form to the fixtures Secretary within 7 (seven) days or a fine will be issued.
Managers & Club Secretaries, please do NO play any player in ANY age group that is not eligible to play. So if you have players AT ANY AGE GROUP who re not registrered with the League THEY ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO PLAY, PLAYERS WHO ARE PART OF ANY FOOTBALL ACADEMY ARE ALSO NOT ELIGIBLE TO PLAY. PLAYERS CAN ONLY PLAY FOR ONE TEAM IN ANY CUP/PLATE COMPETITION AND CAN ONLY PLAY FOR ONE CLUB AT A TIME. IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT THEN ASK .....
Fixture Postponements - Due To School related activities
Managers please remember that you CANNOT make the decision yourselves to postpone a game and then inform the League. If you need to postpone a game, you MUST request a postponement from the League which will be duly discussed and a decsiion will be made as quickly as is possible. If the postponemnt is due to ANY school related activity then the school release form must be submitted with the request for postponement - THIS SHOULD BE DONE AT LEAST 7 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THE FIXTURE (Exceptional circumstances for late delivery of requests will be considered on a per request basis).
There are still a large number of players for many teams who are still in the awiting registration pile - PLEASE ATTEND TO THESE ASAP and do not play any player if you are unsure of their registration status.

Alphington v West Exe Exiles - Under 14's Division `
Not all Derby games have bad blood.
Today Tyler Griffin (Exiles) suffered an injury whilst playing in defence. The injury was not caused by a challenge but actually by himself twisting his knee whilst landing from a header. West Exe YFC would like to thank all of the Alphington staff and players who were brilliant whilst Tyler was laid out on the pitch waiting for the ambulance to arrive then while he was treated on the pitch. West Exe YFC would particularly like to thank an Alphington parent Dr Tom Owens, who took control of the situation and made Tyler very comfortable during a very traumatic situation.
Both sets of players are all school friends so it was really great to see Tyler was given a round of applause by both sets of players when stretchered off the pitch which showed great sportsmanship.
Tyler was taken to hospital and was diagnosed as having dislocated his knee cap which was reset, and he is now on the mend and we all wish him a speedy recovery.
I just wanted to say thanks again to Andy Ellis the Alphington manager and of course the super doctor, Dr Tom.
West Exe Exile’s.
