It is with sadness that the League have been informed that Colin Greenslade, a coach/manager who has run teams in our League for a number of years, passed away recently. Our thoughts are with his family at this time. As a sign of Respect the League would request that all teams observe a minutes silence before their games this weekend.
The League meetings are now held at Misty Blues, Manor Road, Liscard CH44 1BY. Beware of parking in Grosvenor Car Park. Cars can be locked in!
There have been complaints about parking at the Delph on Withins Lane and Brookfield Close. Please park legally and respect the surrounding properties. We have been informed that the police have been alerted to the situation. Fines have been issued in the past!

The procedure to be followed for pitch inspections in case of poor weather are contained in the League Rule Book Para 10(B)(vi)
(vi) In the event of poor weather and the effect this may have on playing conditions the following procedures MUST be adhered to.
A request for a pitch inspection MUST be made to the Referees Secretary no later than the Saturday afternoon for the inspection of the pitch to be carried out on the following Sundaymorning. In the case of Saturday fixtures the request must be made no later than Friday Afternoon. Once requested, the Referees Secretary will appoint a Panel Referee to assess the condition of the pitch and advise accordingly. ONLY THE PANEL REFEREE shall have the power to decide, at that time, on the condition of the pitch and if it is suitable for the game to proceed. Subsequently every effort will be made by the Management Committee to notify the Team Manager and/or Club Secretary of the decision to play, postpone or transfer the fixture to an alternative venue.
Failure to request a pitch inspection on or before the required deadline will require both teams to travel to the venue and await the decision of the Match referee or appointed Match Official.
All coaches in Cheshire MUST have an ‘Accepted’ FA Criminal Records Check by 28 February 2017.
As part of a safeguarding compliance operation by The FA, as of midnight on Sunday 15 January every single team in Cheshire had a coach attached to them, averting the need for any clubs to be suspended. We now require all of those coaches to have an ‘Accepted’ FA Criminal Records Check (CRC) dated within the past three years.
Parking when using the Delph- DO NOT park in front of the black gates of the large white house near the school gates on Withens Lane. This entrance gets used and the owner of the house has complained that last week they could not get in or out. Anyone parking there runs the risk of getting a ticket.
