The Bulletin

Issue# 07
Sunday 15th September 2019

On Tuesday evening, two goals from Jack Crago proved to be enough for Tavistock who held off a late fightback from Shepton Mallet to book their spot in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup. After the sides battling out an entertaining 3-3 draw three days previously, it was the Lambs who made a fast start against the previously unbeaten Mallet, with Jack Crago heading home after just 12 minutes. Crago had scored twice in the original tie, and he repeated that trick in the replay, doubling Tavistock’s lead ten minutes into the second half. The home side continued to battle, and when Asa White scored for the third consecutive FA Cup game there was hope, but the Devon side held out to set up a clash with Exmouth’s conquerors Highworth Town in the next round.

Law Changes

Law Changes.

The 133rd AGM of The International FA Board (The IFAB) in Aberdeen, Scotland on 2 March 2019 approved a number of amendments to, and clarifications of, the Laws of the Game for 2019/20. Three changes were approved following 2 years of worldwide experiments:
• The introduction of yellow and red cards for misconduct by team officials
• A player being substituted leaving the field at the nearest point on the boundary line
• At a goal kick and a free kick for the defending team in their own penalty area, the ball is in play as soon as the kick is taken (it can be played before it leaves the penalty area).

Other changes include: clearer wording for 'handball', attacking team players must be at least 1m away from a defensive ‘wall’, the goalkeeper only has to have one foot on the goal line at a penalty kick, and a new dropped ball procedure (including a dropped being awarded if the ball hits a match official and goes into the goal, team possession changes or a promising attack starts).

Grant Application Service

The Grant Application Service has been in place for three years now and in that time it has helped a number of clubs in the Western League to achieve successful grant awards totalling £500k

The Service provides advice and guidance to clubs who are looking to update their infrastructure as well as hands on management where required.

The Service can provide advice on all aspeces of grant funding, including planning, finding suppliers and completion of all necessary documents to run your project or prepare documents for the Football Association or other lottery funds.

There is no cost at the initial stage and where a more hands on approach is required in general the costs are low, as costs can be claimed back from the grant received.

Clubs we have assisted so far include Barnstaple, Gillingham, Oldland Abbotonians, Keynsham, Street, Cheddar, Plymouth Parkway.

If you would like to discuss your club's infrastructure needs and funding, please call Steve Nicholls on 07454320934 or Martin on 07754543719
