3.  Results

  1. In 2016, the competition is looking to use the Fox Sports Pulse online results system widely used by Capital Football. This will result in easier access and recording of scores and less delay in having the results published. Further updates to this will be released shortly.
  2. Teams playing should confirm the results with the referee at the end of each If there are any disputes that cannot be settled immediately, the teams should lodge a written report.
    1. Referees only need to record the number of goals and final score, and the names of players given any yellow or red Teams wishing to keep their own stats on which players scored should do this themselves.

3.       Written reports signed by the Duty team/ Referee will still be required for the following:

  1. Any game where there is an injury, or
  2. Any game with a red card (Send-off).

In these cases the details of what happened, with who (full names), and when, should be clearly written down and signed by the Referee and each team manager. These reports should be scanned or photographed and sent into the inbox, as well as the original being placed in the nominated folder in South Oval Shed.

 

 

The competition organisers will send out a match-card template if you wish to use, but we found many teams just recorded the scores directly into their phones they were using to time the match.

  2. Teams on Fellows Oval are required to put the nets up

  7. Please ensure that you or your team arrives by 45pm to put the nets up for the 6pm start – games will not be delayed in the event that the nets are not up.

 

Divisions

Teams will be organised into four divisions depending on ability – for this reason teams are asked to nominate the skill level of their players (1-10) and previous team names on the Nomination Form to assist the organisers in grading. Please ensure you provide accurate information on grading to ensure that teams are graded to provide a similar level of competition and increase enjoyment of the competition. Teams will play each team in their division once and the last week will be finals week for all teams. Adjustments for any divisions not with 9 teams will be managed directly with those divisions.
