Wednesday League - ATTENTIONWednesday, 2 March, 2016 08:09 pm
Wednesday night league is designed for mates to get together and have a kick around. There has been an increase of players being brought in to assist with numbers and those players in some cases are NOT Wednesday League standard (as in they are too good).
Effective immediately, ALL Wednesday night teams must have an official team list that is your regular line up. The only time substitute players can be added for a game is if your team can only field the 5 players from your regular line up. You may add one substitue to give you one sub. That player must be approved prior to the game by Futsal Arena management (Ross). Any player who is a Monday night player and not a regular Wednesday night player CANNOT be used on Wednesday nights. Also, if you bring in a player and they are too good for Wednesday nights, the game will be a forfeit and the offending team will lose 5-0.
Please understand, Wednesday night is more difficult to monitor than Monday, because you can get anyone to play Monday nights being the top league. For the integrity of the competition on a Wednesday night, these regulations must be put in place.
On that note, HU will be moving up to Monday night league as I have rated them a Monday league standard. Unfortunately, there will be a bye in both nights now as I offered a Wednesday night spot to SWAG but they are unable to play Wednesday nights.
Please check the new schedule before you play again.
Due to the bye in each night and the odd number of games each team will be playing, the ladder will be based on win %, not points. If your team is above another team on the ladder by points but they have a better win %, the team with a better win % will be higher on the standings.
UNIFORM RULES: Every team has had more than enough time to organise matching shirts WITH numbers. As from 2nd March, any player without a matching top with a proper number (not tape) on the jersey will be penalised one goal per infraction. Also, the no shin guard rule will also apply from 2nd March.
Enjoy the remainder of the season and good luck
