The new season 2015-16
The new season 2015-16 starts with the Annual General Meeting which will be held at Acregate Lane Labour Club on Monday 8 June 2015. The amendments to League Rules will be confirmed at the meeting and some 27 new teams will have their membership confirmed.

The Start of the Playing Season
The new season will start on Sunday 23 August for Open Age teams and on Sunday 06 September for Youth teams.

Format of Divisions
The League will be unable to finalise the formation of the various Open Age divisions for some time as the situation with one of the local leagues is fluid and we may need to accommodate some of their clubs. There are also issues with some of our existing clubs who have not yet achieved Charter Standard Status.

There are also issues of promotion and relegation to be resolved, new Open Age clubs entering the league will start in division 3.

The format of the Youth Section is even more complex as a number of youth teams have enquired about membership but they cannot commit until they have resolved matters with their existing leagues.

Registration of Players
Clubs can register players on-line via the website from Wednesday 10 June providing they have a password.

In order to facilitate the registrations we will add new youth teams to one of the four youth divisions on a completely random basis before sorting out the final youth division format at a much later date. Consequently, the league tables shown on the website are for administration purposes only and will change at a later date.

Eamonn McNamara.

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.

If you are interested and would like more information, please give Jim Bryson a call on 01772 700997.
