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.

Appeals Against a Sending Off
This season the FA Discipline Procedures have changed slightly - there is now an ability to dispute a send-off without video or DVD evidence.
The player is required to get all evidence to the County Office within 3 working days of the match and a decision will be made by the County within 8 working days - before the suspension comes into effect.
There are no personal hearings and the appeal will be judged only on the correspondence submitted.

Playing on 3G Pitches
Problems have arisen this season when some clubs have played on 3G pitches due to players wishing to play whilst wearing the wrong type of footwear
Please look on pages 6 and 7 of the Third Generation Football Turf Guidance booklet which gives details of what footwear is allowed.

Sending in Results by SMS
Some clubs are still sending in results by SMS in the wrong format. Whilst the Full Time system appears to be more tolerant of the format results are being sent in in, results should still be sent in in the correct format
Teams are also reminded that, with the exception of County Cup results and results in Competitions outside this Leagues control, away teams SHOULD NOT send in results.
Teams whose results are not accepted by the system or who send in incorrect or unnecessary results which cause errors on the system, will be fined, as it takes a lot of time to sort these out.
Below are further copies of the guides.
For Essex County Cup matches both HOME & AWAY sides have to respond to ALL the SMS messages they get from Full Time.
