Minutes of BSF Over 35s Football League meeting  -  5th August 2016
held at Bolton Cricket Club


In Attendance;- N.Smith, J.Riley, A.Ahmed, P.Ashton, S.Stott, K.Stephens, and delegates from each team.


Apologies from Noel Shine.


N.Smith read and signed minutes of July meeting as a true copy.  He reminded teams, old and new, that all teams by now should have all application forms in and completed with all information needed, so the handbooks could be made and fixtures done, and all money paid in. We would have 4 leagues, but due to 2 teams dropping out, and still waiting for 2 teams to complete applications and pay money, we are back to 3 divisions of 10 teams. We gave the 2 teams a further week to comply, and get all information and payment sent in, but no response, so 3 leagues of 10 teams was formed, and finally, the fixtures could be done.


A.Ahmed collected money from all teams and reminded teams that they would be fined £10for non-attendance at meetings, and £50 for failing to fulfill a fixture.


J.Riley said the season will kick off on September 4th. All fixtures will be on the website.


K.Stephens said all applications are in and complete. Teams just need the F.A. registration numbers.  Noel Shine has asked me to inform you that teams need to fill out a players registration form and list all players, old and new, with details of date of birth, address and contact number. Any new players will need a photo copy of ID, passport or driving licence.  Teams are allowed to sign 25 players. Any problems, contact Noel Shine.


Minutes of meetings are on the website and a match card to download. Also all other information, fixtures, contacts, tables, referee’s, rules, and a section with the new referee law changes are on the web.


We need all players details for the next meeting before they can play.


Next meeting -  Friday 2nd of September at 7.15pm at Bolton Cricket Club.
