Virus update

You will all have been monitoring the news yesterday and today, and will have seen that we are currently experiencing a fast-moving situation in relation to Coronavirus.

As we did last week, the HYFL/HSC has reviewed, in detail, the guidance provided by the two key bodies – the Government and Public Health England (PHE); as well as announcements made by The FA/Middlesex FA. We have also liaised with The FA/MFA and PHE this afternoon.

It is the intention of the HYFL and HSC to follow the guidance issued by these central bodies, and not to form our own (ill-informed) views or to take a position which is contrary to their guidance.

The Government and PHE guidance (and that of The FA/MFA) currently does ‘not’ indicate that smaller-scale sporting events (such as grassroots football) should be postponed.

As a result, the HYFL/HSC fixture programme currently remains in place.

Strict hygiene standards should be followed at all games, to include no hand-shakes (which is now the clear guidance) and regular washing of hands with soap and water (or hand sanitiser gel).

If a match is postponed/defaulted – then, as with all games, an on-line unplayed/defaulted match report form should be submitted by both clubs – and the result/outcome of the match will be determined in due course over the following weeks.

The above will be kept under review on a week-by-week basis.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

We have been in contact with The FA/Middlesex FA and Public Health England about the situation and any impact on Grassroots Football.

At the current point in time, there is no advice, guidance or instructions to say that we should not continue as we are.

However, as a precaution, the League/Combination has decided that, as from today, there is no ‘requirement’ to include the pre and post-match handshakes as part of the Respect programme. This is purely precautionary, and clubs may continue to do so if they wish. We are merely taking away the ‘mandating’ of this until further notice.

Clearly, if Government advice changes in the coming weeks, then we will update clubs as to the League’s/Combination’s position.

Thank you

As previously advised, the League Management Committee has now discussed the remaining number of matches that each team has to play this season.

As a result, it has been decided that, subject to on-going favourable weather conditions, League Challenge Trophy competitions will be introduced for certain teams in the Under 12 to Under 16 age groups. Matches will start immediately and the finals will ‘all’ be held on Sunday 17th May.

The League’s objective is to maximise football for all teams, and we believe and trust that the introduction of the above competitions will be welcomed by member clubs.

The Committee has considered each age-group separately and then considered each team within that age-group. Not all teams in each age-group have been sanctioned to enter. This is based on the number of League and other games that each team has still to complete and the number of free weeks left in the season. This is the final decision and cannot be appealed as entry is by invitation only.

The current fully sanctioned draw is here.

The terms and conditions of playing are as set by the Management Committee, in accordance with Rules. In summary, each team will play the other in their ‘Group’ (home and/or away) (no extra time or penalties are required) and set at the sole discretion of the League Fixture Secretary) – with progression to the knock-out rounds. These knock-out rounds will be played and penalties (no extra time), where necessary, will decide the winners.

ALL League/Cup rules of the League shall apply. Referee fees for each match are to be paid by the Home team in Group matches and then shared by both teams in QF/SF matches. When submitting an on-line match result form, please select ‘Challenge Trophy’ for the competition being played in.

If weather conditions deteriorate in the coming weeks then, under Rules, the Management Committee reserve the right to cancel any of the competition age-groups or to withdraw any team or teams from the competition at its sole discretion. This decision, if taken, is final and binding. League and League Challenge Cup matches will always take precedence in this decision process.
