S.F.A.I Cup Draws
Per the instructions of the F.A.I the D.D.S.L made all of the S.F.A.I Cup draws tonight for our region.
We would like to thank Mr Michael Cody and Mr Donal Conway for attending as observers along with the many Clubs who made the journey to Abbotstown tonight.
The Fixture Secretaries are now working on setting fixtures including S.F.A.I Cups as games MUST commence on the weekend of 18th and 19th January and MUST be played every weekend thereafter until we are on track to provide the last 4 in each age group to the S.F.A.I. again per F.A.I. instruction.
A full list of the draws will appear in the Evening Herald Striker on Monday and will also be posted on the D.D.S.L website.
There will be no cancellations allowed in these Cup games as we do not have time for refixing any game.
Clubs are asked to ensure if there is a high risk their pitch will be off due to the current weather
situation that they have an alternative pitch available.Should Clubs have no alternative pitch please contact the opposition to see if their pitch is still on as games called off because of pitches will have to be reversed automatically anyway.
To aid the Fixture Secretaries who will have to work week to week on fixtures because of the Cups we must insist that all Club Secretaries immediately text/email their results after each game,if they have to chase results there will be quite a lot of phone calls to be made therefore it would be greatly appreciated by the Secretaries/Referee Allocators if we could have co-operation from all Clubs.
Some points to remember:
D.D.S.L U12s play 9 a side football but the S.F.A.I U12 Cup are 11 a side games.
Substitutes are 5 from 7 in S.F.A.I Cup games.
As previously stated all queries must be directed from Club Secretaries only to the Fixture Secretary.
All issues with games must be discussed in advance with the relevant Fixture Secretaries as per our rules.
