Ron explained decision process of new teams and how a new application form had been put together (available upon request to all teams). Meetings had taken place with managers/new team leaders and phone calls had been made to pastors/leaders of the relevant new churches.

• Constitution of the Competition for ensuing season.
As per amendments discussed in point 3

• Election of Officers and Management Committee.
All current management committee were happy to re-stand for the same current positions. There were no objections and all current members were re-elected.

• Alteration of Rules, if any
- Dan Pennington (Breckfield) – suggestion to add in rule concerning forfeited games… there was an example in season 2011-2012 when a game was forfeited which directly led to a promotion / relegation. This seems unfair and a lot of teams were forfeiting games towards the end of the season when they were not important… this also means a potential golden boot winner cannot add to goal tally etc.

Various new options discussed.
If a team cannot fulfill a fixture then that team will be deducted 3 points and the fixture will be rescheduled to be played at a later date. Further refusal to play the fixture will result in the club coming before the committee.

Constitution states that teams must fulfil 90% of games or face eviction.

This was the only rule change.

- Insurance upgrade reminder – teams must obtain their own insurance and proof of insurance must be provided before start of the season. The insurance cover must be at least equal to the £60 Bronze package offered by Blue Fin. /
