235710/06/1610/06/1612SSG NoticesWe would urge all clubs to ensure that all goals are staked down in accordance with guidelines. It is in the interest of safety that this is adhered to. Clubs should be reported if goals are not staked and this could lead to their fixtures being held up. Each week there are more and more complaints from clubs about the behaviour of parents and spectators on the sideline. It is important that we remember the small sided game was set up to prepare young children for the full 11 a side game. This Small Sided Game is a development league and should be played in the spirit of FAIR PLAY. It is the responsibility of clubs to ensure that their parents and spectators behave themselves. If clubs cannot control their spectators they should not permit them at matches.
