weekly bulletin

10th SEASON 2017 – 2018 BULLETIN No. 16


Richard’s father has had a fall and broken his collar bone, as a result Richard is spending much of his time at his Dads home looking after him, but there is no internet connection available. Richard is trying to get home every few days to deal with outstanding emails etc, but if matters are urgent please telephone or text him.



The Fixture Secretary’s email problem has been sorted, normal service is resumed.



With construction work started this week being carried out at the ground which is expected to last into February 2018, there will be limited parking space available in the ground, due to contractors equipment and materials etc, being stored. Parking will have to be in nearby streets which may be difficult at times so when playing away or refereeing there please ensure you give yourselves enough time to find somewhere to park, to avoid games kicking off late.



Some Clubs may remember the name STAN CHURCHILLMANN, the Secretary of Tooting & Mitcham Wanderers, who were looking to join this league after playing in the Middlesex County League, and who several years ago caused a few problems by trying to get involved in matters relating to the league which were nothing to do with him. Tooting & Mitcham Wanderers failed to get started this season and he has been seen around other Clubs for no apparent reason, he has now been placed under Sine Die suspensions by SCFA for Football debts, so is banned from All Football activities and should not be entertained if he turns up at your game.



Below is the contents of an email received from the FA regarding the NLS and possible movements at the end of the 2017/18 season:

“Clubs are reminded that it may be necessary at the end of the current Season to consider the lateral movement of clubs between leagues at the various Steps within the National League System. Whilst it is too early to be more specific at this stage this is advance warning that this could occur and that your club may be one of the clubs that will be moved. Owing to the NLS restructure, it is likely that there will be more clubs than usual that will be laterally moved in the System. We would remind you that provision for lateral movement is included in the current Regulations for the Operation of the National League System.”

Full Council Meeting

Dear Club Secretary / League Officer,


Please note that a Full Council Meeting will take place on Wednesday 3rd August 2016, commencing at 7.30 pm at Abbey Rangers Football Club, Addlestone Moor, Addlestone, Surrey KT15 2QH.




As this is the first meeting of the new season, this is an appropriate time to remind all member Clubs that there are only THREE meetings each year which they have to attend: – this preseason meeting in August, a Special General Meeting in May to deal with proposed rule changes immediately followed by a Full Council meeting to close the season and in June – the  Annual General Meeting. It should be remembered that attendance at these meetings is a CLUB responsibility, and not the sole responsibility of the Club Secretary, if he or she is not available then another member should be prepared to attend on behalf of the Club.


At the meeting, handbooks for season 2016/2017 will be distributed, these will be issued on the basis of three handbooks per team per club* (i.e. 2 teams = 6 handbooks), pads of result sheets for the season will also be issued on the basis of one per team per Club, plus any other documentation that is available or required. In addition the “bibs” for the Reserve Division plus new teams will also be issued, these are to be worn by substitutes and Club Officials on the bench as per Criteria item 1.10.


Due to the necessity of the meeting being earlier than most Competitions due to the early start date, Surrey County Handbooks for season 2016/17 for those who have ordered a paper copy will not be available, these will be issued at a later date either at other League meetings where Clubs have an involvement or posted out from the County Office or printers direct as is appropriate.


Clubs are also reminded that League Rules call for a minimum of 11 completed registration forms per team per club to be supplied to the League Registration Secretary at least SEVEN days before the commencement of the season, which starts on 13th August, the latest date therefore being 6th August, however the Registration Secretary will be happy to receive these at the above meeting or before if you have any ready. If posted please ensure the correct postage is applied to the envelope to avoid problems.


Several clubs have still not paid their League fees for the coming season so if these have not been paid prior to the meeting please ensure that payment is made on 3rd August.


Yours sincerely,


Gordon Worsfold





*additional copies will be available to purchase if the allocation is considered insufficient.
