Girls fixtures

1. If a club wishes to request a change to girls fixture kickoff time or venue then they must contact Fixtures Secretary Joe McCormack 087-7505479; joemccor1@gmail.com by 1pm on the Tuesday before the fixture. Every effort will be made to accommodate clubs but if it is not possible to agree an alteration then the original fixture stands.

2. Re: Girls Under 10 Non Competitive League – per league secretary notification to all clubs on 8th September last all Under 10 fixtures must be fulfilled. A failure to fulfil a fixture will result in a €30 fine on your club; two walkovers will result in team being removed from the league. Most girls participating in this age group will be experiencing their first taste of organised football. Please note some of the important points in relation to U.10 football as set out in the current FAI Player Development Plan:

- No official scores are recorded; there are no league tables at Under 10

- Team coaches should rotate players so that they experience different positions on the pitch

- Players must have the freedom to express themselves and once the game begins the Coach should just let them play and not ‘direct’ play; parents should not instruct players, they should only encourage players and uphold fair play

- 2 x 30 mins; roll on, roll off subs, all players must get playing time
