Handbook


Recommended Posts

Password was sent to all club secretaries at start of season.

It is not available openly.

Send me a private message listing who you are and why you require it and I can forward your request on to league secretary

Why does a handbook need a password? What happens if the secretary is not available or match needs clarification.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, no doubt Enfield Til It Died will be on later to complain however I was wondering whether the position remains the same with the League Handbook for this season and it still needs a password to access on-line, I haven't checked properly however some handbooks from previous campaigns are readily accessible, such as 2016/17 for example. Uncle T made a valid point in that if there is a Data Protection issue then there should be two books, one for contacts and one for rules:

Whilst we are on the subject of handbooks, I would very much like to get my hands on a copy of the 1997/98 one, the first season that the League came into being following the amalgamation of the Spartan League and South Midlands League. It must have been a weighty tome as the League that season consisted of 75 Club's divided into five divisions, Premier Division North, Premier Division South, Senior Division, Division One North and Division One South:

On the related theme of rules, what is the position on bans following a red card? Is it served immediately, as always used to be the case in the PL/FL, or is there a period of purdah? Maybe while an appeal is considered? I ask as I'm sure recently a player was dismissed on the Saturday yet played on the Tuesday, struck me as odd is all. Can anyone enlighten a mere mortal sans handbook access privileges?

For suspensions in the Spartan South Midlands FL, bans kick in 7 days after the offense.

Does the Handbook still only cater for drivers where giving directions to grounds is concerned, this was raised previously on a thread and I located the useful links below at the time although obviously a number of those Club's have now left the League. The author of the Handbook should realise that not everybody has a car and drives to games, I can certainly think of one Assistant Referee who doesn't:

I'm sure that Assistant Referee manages to find his way to the venues without too much trouble.

Well that's not surprising is it seeing as you are always handed the same old venues week in week out, no wonder you begged to go to Kings Langley last season for a Division Two fixture and paid for it out of your own pocket

Begged?

I requested.

The FA used to publish a Competitions Directory which was quite comprehensive, I don't know whether they still do, it included all the SSML Club's:

The Essex Senior League Handbook for 2019/20, I see Roger Merton is still Chairman at Hoddesdon Town, it was always wonderful to go to Lowfield and see him 'holding Court':

What is going to be the position with the 2021/22 League Handbook out of interest, sadly the 2020/21 edition turned out to be a total waste of time and expense however surely lightening can't strike three times, can it. Anyway, if the Pyramid restructuring does take place despite the curtailment of this season then it's unlikely a Handbook will be published by mid to late September with all the changes and new information required:

I see that the new SSML handbook has 'hit the streets':

Karen - I thought that I was pretty much spot on with my guesstimate back in March, when was the handbook published then out of interest and why is it encrypted with a password required, I've tried 'Fidelio' but that doesn't work.
