Peter Ridsdale makes the Cup Draws

PNE boss Peter Ridsdale makes the cup draws with League Chairman Eamonn McNamara

PNE’s Peter Ridsdale took time out from his busy schedule to make the draws for the First round of this season’s Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup and Syndicate Trust Youth Cup. Peter congratulated the League for being awarded Charter Standard status and he sent his best wishes to all our clubs and players for the coming season.

The first round of the Syndicate Trust Challenge Cup will be played to a result on Sunday 17th August 2014. The games will consist of 90 minutes play and if a draw then extra time of 15 minutes each way will be played. Should it still be a draw after the extra time then the tie will be decided by the taking of penalties kicks in accordance with the Laws of the Game.

These games will see the introduction of repeat substitutions in the adult section.

Should a Club not be able to raise a team on this date then they will forfeit the tie and jeopardise their entry in to the President's Cup. Teams losing in the first round of the Challenge Cup will be eligible to play in the Presidents Cup. Premier division teams will enter the competition in round two and will not be eligible to play in the Presidents Cup.

Charter Standard Workshops

The first of this season’s Charter Standard workshops for clubs looking to obtain the Charter Standard Mark was held at Ingol Golf Club on Monday 7th July with 12 club representatives in attendance. Another workshop will be held next week and a similar number of club officials are expected to attend.

Now that we are a Charter Standard League, ALL clubs are required to obtain the Charter Standard Mark before the end of this season or jeopardise their place in the League.

If your club has not yet obtained Charter Standard you are urged to contact the League Secretary Nikki Nye who will give the appropriate advice, Nikki can be contacted here.

Referee fitness training continues during the summer.

Training will be held from 6.30-7.30pm every Monday evening at Preston Sports Arena during the summer in preparation for the 2013-14 season.

Our weekly fitness sessions with the excellent facilities on offer at the Arena and the support group atmosphere is something very positive which the Society offers.

Organiser Paul Marsden said, "I would particularly appeal to any members who perhaps do not currently attend Society meetings for whatever reason to give the fitness sessions a go as I assure you that you will find it a very good way of getting involved, it will benefit your refereeing.

If you are interested in coming down either next week or in the future, please contact Paul Marsden via e-mail .

Referees Wanted

Referees are needed to ensure that games in the local leagues have a qualified official.

Is this something that would interest you? - if so we can help you get started and we will support you through the Referees Society training programme.

Referees come in all shapes and sizes, young and old, male and female and if you love the beautiful game we can find a place for you. Ex-players are particularly welcome.
