 Developments for 19/20

  • NO GOAL DIFFERENCE – League placings WILL NOT be decided on goal difference and instead joint positions will be awarded for those teams involved.  In the event of two teams tied on points at the top of the league, they will be joint winners and BOTH go through to the Champions League event.
  • SIN BIN – The FA have introduced a “sin bin” ruling that is to be introduced for any players showing dissent that would lead to a BOOKING.  The player in question would be sin-binned for 6 mins before being allowed to return to the pitch.  Please note that this would only occur if you were to BOOK a player for dissent.
  • RETREAT RULE from goal kicks.  All of the defending team must retreat into their own half when a goal kick is being taken.
