2019 AGM HIGHLIGHTSNew
South Ilford Catholics had cause to celebrate another trophy on June 20th as their long serving Manager/Coach/Guru, was rewarded with the prized Secretary of the Year award. Capping a 40 year career Ron has earned his stripes through his dedication to grassroots football and the special community they have developed at his club. Add that to the Beitler Cup and an appearance in the Bellamy Cup Final and it really was a reason to pop the corks and pour a Guiness or two.
Highlights of the AGM
A successful AGM concluded with the presentation and recognition of all the achievements for last season. The following were some of the items agreed for 2019-20.
- Suspend the introduction of rolling substitutions while we adopt the new Sin Bin requirements
- New rules regarding qualification of players between First Team and Reserves
- All new player registrations must be submitted by noon on the Friday before the game but you are still allowed to sign two new players on the day of a league game. All other registration rules stay the same.
- Double Header fee for a referee is raised from £45 to £50 to bring them in line with most other leagues. No changes to any other fees.
Our aim, as it is every season, is to provide an honest, fair and competitive league for all teams to compete in. We pride ourselves in trying to do things the right way…..with respect for everyone and all other organisations. By nature we are competitive and expect everyone to behave and respect and preserve the integrity of these competitions. I have an experienced Management team who have decades of experience and share my love for the game. Between us we intend to continue to improve the experience for our own clubs and look forward to making sure the ESFC is the place to be for all teams and match officials.
