Dear Member Clubs
I am writing to inform you of some important changes that have taken place over the past couple of days regarding the MHRML Committee.
With immediate effect Mick Hickford has stepped down as General Secretary of the competition alongside his role as U15 Fixture Secretary as well. Mick has also stepped down from the committee as well and the committee would like to thank Mick for his service during his time with us.
Picking up the baton for the General Secretary role until the end of the season is a name familiar to you all – Maxine Carter. I am sure you will join me in providing Maxine a big welcome and hearty thanks for stepping in at short notice.
I will be picking up the U15 Fixture Secretary role to see through us to the end of the season as well.
As you can see, we have a number of committee members holding multiple roles which is tough – contrary to opinion the committee members do have lives outside the confines of football! We are, though, in need of fresh volunteers to assist with the running of Hertfordshire’s biggest and Premier Youth football competition. If you or anyone you know are willing to step forward please contact me ASAP.
I ask for your understanding and patience whilst Maxine and I get upto speed with the new roles.
MHRML Acting Chairman
Dear Member Clubs,
First of all a Happy New Year to you all.
There is a Mid Herts Rural Minors League General Meeting being held on Thursday the 24th of January, at The Shamrock Club, Ridgeway, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 2AD, which starts at 8.00 pm.
The small bar will be open from 7.30pm for beverages.
Club Secretaries are reminded that if they are unable to attend, a representative from their Club must attend instead; failure to do so will result in a fine of £50.00 being charged under Rule 6(M).
To all Member Clubs
Following a number of queries regarding the number of players permitted to be entered on a team sheet at U9 and U10.
The League have reviewed this and due to the Rules not being explicit, the decision has been reached to allow up to 12 squad players to be entered on a team sheet for the 2018-2019 Divisional Cup Competition.
You are however reminded that only 10 players (out of the possibly named 12) can be taken to any Cup match and all of whom must play 50% of the total match time. This includes the Finals.
It is further reiterated, that once team sheets have been submitted you will be unable to change the boys/girls between the teams for the Divisional Cups (this does not apply to League games). As previously advised new signings will be able to be added providing permitted numbers aren’t exceeded.
I will arrange for players removed to be added back in.
I hope this clarifies the situation
