  1. At the moment this is a recommendation not a directive Dave.
  2. The following was received from the FA just before 6pm today. All clubs have been asked to mutually agree a kick off time. Statement: “The FA has consulted with Her Majesty’s Government in relation to the funeral arrangements of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and sporting fixtures on Saturday 17 April 2021. “As a mark of respect, The FA will be recommending that no football fixtures take place between 14:45 and 16:15, a minute’s silence is observed before matches are played and black armbands are worn. All flags at Wembley Stadium and St. George’s Park will also fly at ha
  3. All St Piran fixtures for next Saturday are now scheduled for a 3:05pm kick-off.
  4. Latest from the FA. Please see attached our final press release for our updated FA step two guidance, which comes into effect on Monday 12th April. This is under embargo until 5pm, 8th April when we will publish on FA.com. There are two areas in the Government guidance that are reflected in the FA’s guidance which we understand may cause some confusion and we wanted to draw these to your attention and offer our support in helping you to deal with any queries: Firstly on spectators, the Government confirmed in their newly updated guidance yesterday, that the position is that no

  6. With Step 2 confirmed today as coming into effect on 12th April socially distanced spectators will be permitted from that date as detailed in the link at the bottom of the page that Dave has provided the shortcut for above.
  7. It's my intention to have games on the 12th/13th/14th to get everything going. It's a reasonably tight schedule so missing out on an early date wouldn't help. Just working on the fixtures now but I have to strictly limit my time in front of the screen so they may take a little longer than normal.
  8. The rules for the end of season cup rules are now with the Management Committee for approval. They specifically limit the number of SWPL or higher players that can be used. This is a competition for St Piran teams and players not an opportunity for higher league players to get a run out.
  9. The committee has not voted against playing a cup competition. All clubs were asked if they would be happy to play without spectators in the initial trawl. A small number weren't and have now been removed from the participants list. There are still enough for a viable competition but in light of last night's info all clubs have been given until Sunday to change their mind if they want to. Only the clubs can make their individual decisions about whether they want to play. All of their circumstances will be different. At the moment a good majority want to play.
  10. Which is exactly why the clubs have been given the option as to whether to enter the cup competition or not and given over a week to discuss this within the the club structure. Some have opted out, some are in and some have yet to respond. Each clubs circumstances will be different and they must do what is best for them. Responses from those that have yet to do so are due by the end of today.
  11. I can confirm that the decision to curtail the league season was made at the weekend. It's hoped to run a cup competition and the clubs have until 8th March to confirm or otherwise their participation. We also await updated guidance on the use of changing rooms and clubhouses and the admission of and rules governing spectators.
  12. Statement from the FA received at 7:15 this evening: 'The FA Leagues Committee have met to consider the continuation or curtailment of the 2020-21 season for Regional NLS Feeder Leagues. While Feeder Leagues are sanctioned by County FA's they remain under the jurisdiction of the Leagues Committee under FA Council. The Committee considered the implications of the Government’s Covid-19 roadmap, the recommendations for Steps 3-6 and the feedback from the grassroots survey. The Committee agreed that, in line with the wider grassroots game, they would recommend to FA Council to extend F
  13. A couple of weeks ago the FA sent out a survey to league officials in the grassroots game which asked for their leagues opinions on three options and an opportunity to suggest any other proposals on how to end the season so I would hope that all of the leagues and member clubs have expressed their opinions. The options were: 1. Aim to complete the 2020/21 season by the end of May (or extended to 30th June if needed) depending on the restart date post lockdown. 2. The 2020/21 season should be terminated immediately, and either declared null and void or decided via points per ga
  14. This is very true and the difference will become even more marked when the two west leagues inevitably merge but I believe that the pandemic has slowed progress and discussions on that front. That's a whole other topic though and not entirely related to Devon League vacancies.😁
