The early rounds of the FAI Junior Cup will take place on the 14th and 28th of September, while the opening round of the Munster Junior Cup will take place on the 21st of September.
When filling out match cards, clubs should be aware that a player signed with the Bs but playing with the As must be marked as a B player on the match card by putting a circled B after the player’s name.
Clubs with two junior teams are reminded that it is essential when signing players to mark whether the player is registering for the A-team or the B-team. If neither A-team nor B-team is marked on the registration form, then the player will be considered to be an A-team player, even if the intention was to sign him as a B-team player.
All clubs should ensure that all players are signed as spot-checks will be done by the League during the season and clubs found to be in breach will be punished according to rule.
Transfers can take place until the 30th of September and again when the transfer window reopens for the months of December and January. No transfers between clubs will be allowed during October and November and from February onwards. Transfers from B-team to A-team using the four-game rule can take place anytime during the season, with such transfer requiring sanction by the Management Committee. A player can only transfer once within a club during the season, ie either from A-team to B-team or B-team to A-team.
Sunday results should be phoned in as soon as possible after the match but not later than 4.30 and the same applies to Saturday Youths games. In the event of afternoon Cup games going to extra-time, results should be phoned in immediately after the match. The results of evening matches should be phoned in immediately after the match. As usual, the person to ring is Frank Nelligan and the number is 068-31386, rather than the mobile number. Please include details of scorers if leaving a message on the answering machine. It is the responsibility of the home team to phone in results and failure to do so within the time required will result in a fine being imposed.
Clubs should note that the League has a new website, which is www.ldfl.leaguerepublic.com
