Club Linesman Workshop

Dear Member Clubs,

The Mid Herts Rural Minors League are pleased to be able to inform you that we have arranged another Club Linesman Workshop to help your willing volunteers learn a little bit more about how to “run the line”.

The Workshop will be delivered by Hertfordshire FA’s Referee Development Officer (and ex-Premier League and FIFA Assistant Referee) Phil Sharp.

We have booked the main hall of the Shamrock Club in Welwyn Garden City for Thursday the 17th of September 2015 from 7.30 to 9.30pm. The doors will be open from 7.15.

Please pass this information onto your team managers who need to find a linesman each week. The Workshop is intended for the adult volunteers who need the help. It is not designed for already qualified Referees or for players who would like to become Referees. It is genuinely aimed at the keen adults who would like some helpful advice. Therefore, there is a minimum age of 18 for attendees.

Knowing Phil, the evening will be fun, informative and active! I’m sure everyone who attends will learn a lot and have a good time. Participants do not need to bring anything along as everything needed will be provided.

In order to book a place, please ask your Club Linesmen to send me an email Gordon Marshall our Referee Development Officer at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We will only accept individual bookings please and we will not accept block bookings from Clubs.

Although there will be no charge for the Workshop, the League hopes that people who book to attend actually do so as non-attendance deprives a place to someone else that wanted to be there.

Places are limited so make sure the applications are sent in as soon as possible.

Full details will be sent directly to participants.

If the Workshop is popular, we will aim to repeat it, possibly at another venue.

Kind regards.

League Update
Dear Member Clubs,

Firstly a message from the Herts FA to all Clubs that still need to Affiliate or complete their Affiliation.

"Next week is the ultimate deadline for clubs to enter our County Cup competitions. If you have not paid for your affiliation by Friday 17th July then the club will be unable to participate in the County Cup.

Constitution 2015/2016

We would advise that the League received numerous appeals and where possible the Constitution has been amended. Where an appeal has not been successful the results of that team will be monitored closely over the first few weeks of the season and we will move any of these teams if we feel that they are placed in incorrect divisions. We also reserve the right to move any teams that were successful with their appeal should they turn out to be in the incorrect division.

This has resulted in a couple of larger divisions than we would have liked for the published age groups. We will therefore be looking to put up midweek fixtures at the start of the season and would ask that all Managers co-operate with their Fixture Secretary.

The Constitution for the coming season has now been set and a copy has been sent to the Herts FA, they will now check to make sure all Clubs who have joined our League have affiliated to a County FA.   Please can I remind clubs that you need to affiliate every year to a County FA, any Club who is found not to have affiliated will be suspended from playing football.  As a league we will be in breach of FA Rules if we let clubs play without being affiliated to the FA.

Please can I remind Club Secretaries that if you have changed your team names since affiliating with your County FA you must inform them of any new team names.  If Clubs  have added new teams since affiliating with their County FA, please remember to let your County FA know or your new teams will not be covered by the FA Insurance.  Your County FA needs to know about all teams from Under 7’s through to Under 18’s.

If we are notified that Clubs are using a different team name by their County FA, we will have no option, but to change the Constitution to reflect this and to pass on any fines we receive to the clubs concerned.  If the teams concerned then need their MHRML registration cards reprinted with the new name, it will be at a cost to the club of £2 per card.
A copy of the Constitution for 2015-2016 is attached for clubs; please can I ask clubs to check that we have the correct team names for your teams. If you notice any discrepancies please can you email me, so I can make the changes before Mitoo is published.  
In respect of our non-published leagues the fixture secretaries will be reviewing the results from our non-published leagues on a regular basis.  We want children taking part in these leagues to develop their football skills, be able to take part whatever their ability and have the opportunity to feel success.  Teams will be moved up and down during the season in order to meet these objectives.
There will be no more changes to the Constitution now, unless it is a team name change, all the appeals have be heard by three Members of the Committee and a decision has been reached and no further appeals can be submitted.
We will not be accepting any more 11-a-side teams for this coming season, but if clubs wish to add more non-published league teams please contact me to discuss when the League will do its best to facilitate your requirements.

If you have queries to do with the League please do not hesitate to contact the General Secretary.

League Update

Our Rules have today been Approved by the Herts FA and I have attached a copy for your information which should be passed on to all Managers/Coaches, a copy will also be available on the Mid Herts website

I would point out that there has been a further MANDATORY Rule change added under Rule 10b which relates to the allowed playing times in all competitions for all age groups.

MHRML - Draft League Constitution 2015-2016

Dear Member Clubs,

Please find attached a copy of the Draft Constitution for this coming Season 2015-2016.

If Clubs have any queries or wish to appeal against where teams have been placed, can they please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . All correspondence must be through the Club Secretary and in writing. The deadline for any queries/appeals is Wednesday the 7th of July 2015. All appeals will be dealt with by Neil Kimsey (Chairman), Lee Jones (Deputy Chairman) and Carole Marshall (U16/U18 Fixture Secretary) and the final Constitution will be issued by the 17th of July 2015.

In respect of the non-published age groups Under 8's - Under 12's. Some new divisions have been added due to the number of the teams at the age group so your colour group may have changed to what you was expecting. The Management Committee will move teams as the season progresses to ensure teams are in an appropriate division for their level it may also be in a couple of the age groups that another division is added in October half term.

Published age Groups Under 13's - Under 18's, new clubs/teams and newly promoted and dropped teams will be closely monitored by the Fixture Secretaries throughout September and early October, if any of these teams are found to be winning or losing heavily then again these teams will be moved into another division.

Can I ask Club Secretaries to check the Constitution to make sure that we have the correct team names listed, if you can email me with any team names that are missing or if any corrections are required at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Please can I remind Clubs that the team names that are listed with the League must be the same team names as registered with the County FA they are affiliated to.

If you have any queries about anything to do with the Mid Herts Rural Minors League, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards.
