Fixtures for Premier and Division 1 will be issued on Monday 25 July and hopefully I will have written August for Divs 2, 3 and Reserve…if so, these will be released then as well
The reasons are thus:
1…Not all clubs have yet to return their forms A-H and so I have been unable to extract all the information required
2…We have had to wait for the Northern Premier League and Southern League to release their fixtures and whilst a lot of preparatory work has been done, a lot has to be done ..eg Westfields wish to be opposite Hereford
3…3/4G pitches at Boldmere, Quorn, Stafford Town have been delayed causing disruption to draft fixtures, thus meaning we have to find a way of addressing these issues as regards start dates for Home matches.
4…Late notification of closed dates for Home matches…carnivals in the town etc.
5…Alvis’ appeal is being heard this Tuesday, so until the result is known, I cannot start on Divs 2 & 3
These are just a few, but hopefully we will issue on 25th July, which incidentally will give clubs the same notice period as the Northern Premier League have.
