Important notes on completing your 2023-24 affiliation to C&DJFL:
Required Forms A1, A2 and the New team Questionnaire can be found here.
The deadline for all forms to be returned is 31st May 2023.
Forms should be returned to email@example.com.
Form A1 – all clubs should submit one form A1 per club.
Forms A2 – all clubs should submit one form A2 per team. For mini soccer teams (as defined on form A2), you should pair your teams and submit one form per pair of teams (listing both team names on the form). If you have just one mini soccer team or an odd team left over, submit a form for that single team and we will pair them with a single team from another club for the purposes of fixtures.
New Team Questionnaire – only required for teams at U12 and above that did not play in our League last year. This applies to teams from existing member clubs as well as from prospective new member clubs.
A non-refundable entry deposit of £5 per team is payable by bank transfer to the League account by 31st May. Details on Form A1. Remember, a pair of mini soccer teams counts as two teams.
As per our League rule 4, club affiliations forms (form A1) received after 31st May will be subject to a fine of £100 (rule 4E) and your entry will need to be ratified by a vote of members at the AGM in June (Rule 4A) before being official.
Late submission of team entry forms (form A2) is not fineable under League rules, but nor are we obliged to accept them, so please don’t risk it! If you are unsure about whether a team will run or not, it is better to submit a form for them before 31st May and then withdraw later (doing so will only cost you your £5 entry deposit for the team).
Teams can be withdrawn without penalty (other than the loss of your £5 entry deposit) up until Sunday 23rd July inclusive. Any team withdrawn after this date will be subject to a fine under rule 11B (Failure to commence fixtures – £100 fine).
Your club’s County FA affiliation needs to be complete, with all teams entered with us correctly listed in WGS, by Sunday 23rd July 2023. Failure to do this holds up the process of us creating the divisions for the new season and so we reserve the right to fine any club not properly and fully affiliated by the above date under League rule 2G (Failure to affiliate – £100 fine).
Please ensure that all teams you enter with us are included on your annual affiliation to your county FA in June, and that the team names you list on your Form(s) A2 match those entered on your County FA affiliation (if, after submitting a Form A2 to us you decide to enter a different name for the team on your County affiliation, please inform me of the change without delay). Failure to comply with this request can hold up the process of finalising divisions and creating fixtures, therefore your club may be fined under Rule 6H (Failure to comply with an instruction of the management committee) if we find that teams entered with us are not in WGS when we come to compile the Divisions after 23rd July.
Form A2 asks you to indicate if the team will be entered in a County Cup. This applies to U12s and above only. If, after submitting this form, you change your mind on whether a team will/will not be entered for County Cup (which you indicate on your County FA affiliation submission) then please inform me of the change ASAP so I can update our records.
