Clubs are reminded that the months of October and November are closed months for transfers. Clubs can engage in transfer activity again in December and January. The closing date for signing players who haven’t signed for another club is the 31stof March.


In a new departure, notifications of suspensions this season will be sent by e-mail to club secretaries, who must respond to e-mail within two days confirming that they have received it.


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.


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 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.
