YOUTH ALLIANCE COMPETITION RULES 1

Constitution

1.1

This combination of Clubs shall be called ‘The Football League Youth Alliance’ or any such other title as the terms of any sponsorship arrangement shall require and shall consist of not more than fifty-eight Clubs. All teams must be the youth teams of: (a) Clubs in membership of the FA Premier League or The Football League; or (b) other Clubs as may be admitted in accordance with Rules 1.2 and/or 1.3 below.

1.2

Any member club of The Football League which is relegated to the Football Conference (a ‘Relegated Club’), provided that it was prior to relegation a member of the Alliance, may apply not later then 1st June immediately following such relegation for permission to continue as a m e m b e r o f t h e Yo u t h A l l i a n c e w h i l s t a m e m b e r o f t h e F o o t b a l l C o n f e re n c e . That application will only be considered where the Relegated Club can demonstrate that it has continuing contractual obligations to players registered as scholars (as defined by Football League Regulations). The Executive shall have the power to determine any conditions attaching to any continued membership provided always that a maximum permitted period shall be two Seasons immediately following relegation.

1.3

Upon such terms and conditions as it may think fit, the Executive may admit additional Clubs in order to supplement the fixtures of its existing members. Any admissions will be at the absolute discretion of the Executive but will be for one Season only. Where any Club has a youth team admitted in accordance with this Rule 1.2 that Club shall give notice not later than 1st March in that Season as to whether it wishes to be considered for membership in the following Season. Continued membership shall also be at the absolute discretion of the Executive. The Executive shall give notice as to whether membership will be continued for a further Season not later than 1st April following receipt of notification from the Club that it wishes its membership to continue.

1.4

The Alliance must receive the sanction of The Football Association and the constituent teams may be grouped for divisions.

1.5

The Regulations of The Football League Ltd for the time being in force shall apply where applicable, unless these Rules shall provide otherwise.

1.6

Application by Clubs for admission to the Alliance must be made in writing to the Executive, no later than 1st March in each year.

1.7

Any Club intending to resign from membership of the Alliance must indicate this in writing to the Executive no later than 1st April in each year. Failure to meet this deadline will render the Club liable to a fine as determined by the Executive up to a maximum of £5,000.

2

Powers of the Management/Executive

2.1

The Alliance shall be governed by The Board of Directors (the ‘Board’) for the time being of The Football League who shall have the power at any time to alter, delete or add to these Rules in such manner as they in their absolute discretion deem appropriate.

2.2

The Board shall have the power to act upon and enforce the Rules of The Football League Youth Alliance and shall also have jurisdiction over all matters, including any not provided for in these Rules.

2.3

The Board shall have the power, authority and discretion to delegate the administration of The Alliance to the Executive.

The Board reserves the right to expel any club from membership of the Alliance that it feels is detrimental to the standards expected of Youth Alliance clubs.

3

Competition/Structure/Fixtures

3.1

(a) Clubs will be divided into North and South and then into Regional conferences within each area. Each Club will play the other clubs within their Conference once at home and once away. The exception will be in the North West and South East Conferences. (b) In the North West and South East Conferences for the purposes of fixture compilation Clubs will be divided into Groups A and B based on geographical location. Within these groupings, each club will play the other clubs once at home and once away. Additionally, clubs from Group A will play Group B teams on a single occasion, and vice versa.

64

3.2

The Executive has determined that the FL Youth Alliance season will conclude in parallel with the Football League season. Any matches still outstanding may be regarded as null and void at the absolute discretion of the Executive.

3.3

At the end of the season, the club having the largest number of points in each division shall be declared the Champion Club.

3.4

In all matches, points shall be awarded on the basis of three points for a win and one point for a draw.

3.5

If two or more Clubs are level on points, the Club having the best goal difference shall be declared the winner. In the event of the difference being equal, the winner shall be the club which has scored most goals.

3.6

In the event that Clubs cannot be separated on points, goal difference and goals scored, then the result(s) of the fixture(s) between the clubs involved shall be the deciding factor. If Clubs cannot be separated in this manner a play-off match or matches as determined by the Executive may be arranged.

3.7

All matches shall be played in accordance with the Laws of the Game of Association Football as settled by The International Football Association Board.

4

Length of Play/Kick-off Times/Conditions of Play/Substitutes

4.1

Any Club failing to Kick-off at the appointed time may be fined a Specified Penalty (ÂŁ25) or be otherwise dealt with as the Executive may decide. In the event that the visiting team has to travel a distance of more than 120 (one hundred and twenty) miles or for a period exceeding two and a half hours, they can request a later kick-off time, such request not to unreasonably withheld. Any disputes as to kick-off times will be determined by the Executive.

YOUTH ALLIANCE HANDBOOK

4.4

Referees must order matches to commence at the appointed time if possible and must report all late starts to the Executive.

4.5

It is the responsibility of the Home Club to give notice in writing containing full details particularly of the location of the ground, time of kick-off and means of reaching the ground, to the Referee (and Assistant Referees) and the Secretary of the opposing Club at least five clear days prior to the date of the match, and the opposing Club and match officials shall acknowledge such notice. Any Club failing to carry out these provisions will be fined a specified penalty in the absolute discretion of the Executive.

4.6

The person in charge of each team must hand a copy of a team sheet containing the names of all players taking part in the game (including the names of the five nominated substitutes) to the Referee and a representative of the opponents in the presence of the Referee in his dressing room at least 30 (Thirty) minutes before the scheduled time of kick-off. The list shall indicate the full names of the players and shall indicate the colour of the Players’ kit and the Goalkeepers’ strip.

4.7

Should any nominated player or substitute sustain an injury after the submission of the team sheet to the Referee and before the kick-off time, he may be replaced and the Referee and the opposing Club should be informed. Any Club failing to observe these provisions will be fined a sum not exceeding a Specified Penalty (£25) in the absolute discretion of the Executive.

4.8

It is the responsibility of the home club to provide match balls up to the required standard for each fixture. Match balls are to be presented to the Referee for inspection prior to kick-off. The Football League may require, by issuing written notification instructing as such, that Clubs use ‘official match balls’.

4.9

It shall be the responsibility of the home team to ensure that at least the minimum medical requirements laid down from time to time by the Football Association are complied with in respect of all matches and, without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, that there is in attendance at all matches, a person who holds the Football Association Treatment of Injuries Certificate (or equivalent) and/or such other qualification in relation to the treatment of injuries as the Executive may decide from time to time.

4.10 In the event of a Club failing without just cause to keep its engagement, the Executive shall have the power to impose a fine, award points to its opponents, order the defaulting Club to pay any expenses incurred by its opponents and relevant officials or otherwise deal with the matter at its discretion.

4.11 Substitutes up to a maximum of five per team may be nominated for any match provided they are included on the Team Sheet handed to the Referee prior to the Match.

Adequate changing facilities for players and officials are to be provided. It is expected that Clubs are able to accommodate each team and the match officials in separate changing and showering areas.

5.5

(a) Clubs must fence or rope off the playing area from spectators in appropriate circumstances. (b) Technical areas should be marked out with white lines. The ‘Technical Area’ extends 1m (1yd) on either side of the halfway line and extends forward up to a distance of 1m (1yd) from the touchline.

Clubs will not be permitted to play any fixture on an artificial surface without prior approval from the Executive

6

Postponements/Abandonments/Re-arrangement of Fixtures

YOUTH ALLIANCE HANDBOOK

DISTRIBUTION OF CONTRIBUTORY LEAGUE MATCH OFFICIAL APPOINTMENTS FOR SEASON 2009-2010 For season 2008-2009 the Football Association will no longer be producing a printed monthly bulletin for Match Official Appointments for the Contributory Leagues. The Match Official Appointments for the Contributory Leagues will now be available on the FA’s website at the following page: www.TheFA.com/ContributoryLeagueOfficials The appointments will be available as a PDF file, which can be easily downloaded from the website. Match officials will be notified of this change directly by letter from the FA Refereeing Department. Leagues will need to notify their member clubs of the change in distribution of Match Official appointments, as no hard copies of the bulletin will be produced. The dates of publication will be issued to Leagues during the summer informing them when each month’s appointments will be posted onto the FA website. Each League will still receive a WORD file of the monthly appointments by email, to edit and distribute as they wish. There will no longer be a delay between the issuing of this email and the publication of the Match Officials bulletin. Leagues will also receive a monthly WORD file of the Contributory League Directory of Match Officials and Assessors by email, updated with any amendments the FA have received each month. Alternatively, Leagues can receive the monthly Amendments page only if they prefer. It is possible to search the PDF file for a specific Match Official or Club, thus saving time looking through a printed booklet. This is possible by: 1 Clicking on Edit on the toolbar across the top of the page. 2 Selecting Search 3 Entering the name of the Club or Match Official you require, and clicking Search. 4 The instances where that name appears in the bulletin will be listed on the right hand side on the page. These can be instantly accessed by clicking on them. The publication of the monthly Contributory League Appointments on the FA Website has several benefits: • Appointments will be available to Match Officials and clubs approximately 4-5 days earlier than in previous seasons. • Significantly reduced printing and distribution costs for the FA • The FA Refereeing Department will have approximately 4-5 days longer to acknowledge Match Officials appointments, and receive more notice for re-appointments. • Previous months appointment bulletins will remain on-line on the FA’s website. • Far quicker for Match Officials and clubs to find their relevant appointments
