Please be aware that due to the ECFA moving across to a new system recently there is a backlog of discipline cases backed up.
This could mean that you have a player suspended but won't have seen the paperwork.
The ECFA will tell you 'Send off suspensions commence automatically 14 days after the offence, regardless of paperwork'.
So please be careful, if you think you have a player suspended but haven't seen the paperwork please check with the ECFA.
You will get charged with playing a player whilst suspended by them and for playing an ineligible player by the League.

If you notify the relevant people that your match has been postponed by e-mail or text, you MUST, request a receipt. You will be able to see if the Fixtures Secretary has received your message as the match will either have been deleted from Full Time or have a notation saying it has been postponed.
E-mails and text messages do go astray and it is the clubs responsibility to ensure that any e-mails or text messages sent have been received.
The correct way to notify all of the above is by telephone
If the referee calls the game off you MUST notify the Fixtures Secretary by TELEPHONE..

Changed Venues and Kick-Off Times
Clubs are reminded that if they change the venue or the kick-off times from those shown on Full Time they must let the Fixtures Secretary and Referees Secretaries know.
This is so that there are no problems if the officials have to be changed at the last moment and will also enable the Website to be kept up to date for the benefit of anyone wishing to watch the match. It also ensures that players taking part in the match are made aware.

Your attention is drawn to League Rule 8 (R) which deals with the procedure to be followed should you query the identity of a player of the opposing team.
The League Management Committee will only deal with appeals if the correct "Player Identification Form" has been used.
You can download a "Player Identification Form" via THIS link and clubs are urged to ensure that their team managers have at least one of these forms with them at every match.
