Secretaries Report – Ian Woods

Can teams in the West Herts Youth League please remember to take their team /registration sheets to all games.

The club have received fines due to results cards not being handed in, please ensure all procedures are carried out each week.

There are new FA disciplinary rules. If there is a booking in a match then please inform Ian immediately. Red cards can now be appealed but you only have two days to do this and you cannot appeal if it's for two yellow cards or for bad language/dissent. A caution is a £10 fine which also goes to Ian.

The Greenwood Park gates will now be open on matchdays.

The Highfield clubhouse has been tidied (thanks to Jason). We aim to keep it this way so please put any respect barriers, goals, corner flags and other equipment back where you found them.

The Verulamium pitches are back up and running and the trees have been trimmed.

The 2017/18 Presentation Day will be on Saturday 16th June. It will be set out more like a theatre this year rather than the usual layout.

Tours: Teams must make their own arrangements for tours. However, if teams want to liaise with each other if they are considering going to the same location then Ian can arrange this. (See Mervyn Morgan item on Tours)

An attendee is required for the next Mid Herts Rural Minors League meeting on Thursday 19th October. This role will be rotated each month.

Treasurer’s Report – Lesley Wray

Managers to see Leslie for referee fees for the upcoming season.

The Highfield Tea Bar is open every Saturday and Sunday morning, feel free to stop by at any time.

Lesley made a statement about Dave on the one-year anniversary:

Many tributes have been made for Dave including the following:

  • Bench at Highfield Park,
  • 2016/17 County Cup final being played in memory of David (first time for a club official),
  • Special Olympics award being named after him,
  • Speech at the 2017 Presentation Day
  • Memorial Match organised by the young coaches.

Nothing has been done at Nicholas Breakspear School due to the issues with the Sink Fund which David was fully aware off. The only annual tribute will be a Herts Sports Partnership Award and it shall be kept this way.

This will be Leslie's last year as Club Treasurer after 30 years involved with the club. Mervyn will be publishing a job advert for this role in the near future.

The whole meeting stood and applauded Lesley.

The new Seasons Kit and Equipment Requirements - Just to reiterate

Equipment

All equipment orders must come through Mervyn, they are then being managed by Minerva, when your orders are available you will be notified at which point you will need to collect from Minerva. Please collect them quickly as we do not want to clog up Minerva’s available space (they are doing us a favour).

All kit orders are being handled by Louise Shepherd, Louise can be contacted via email on louise.shepherd@cityyouthfc.com

Back to the top

Sponsorship and Kit

New Sponsorship and Commercial Manager

It is with great pleasure that we can announce long-time supporter and friend of St Albans City Youth Community FC, Jeremy Pearlman has agreed to take on the role covering Sponsorship and Commercial. This will include team and club sponsorship plus any other commercial opportunities that will provide the club with a benefit.

Over the next few months, Mervyn Morgan will bring Jeremy up to speed with the clubs commercial and sponsorship operation.

We have had over a dozen new sponsors during the summer, well done to everyone involved. Information on Sponsorship options is available to download from the website.

If you have a Sponsor please wait until the sponsor has paid the money to the club before approaching Louise to order the new kit. We have had a couple of occasions this season when this was not the case.

Back to the top

Additional Coaching Support

We did say this at the start of last season but I am taking this opportunity to reiterate it again in readiness for this season. Several teams ask if they can have coaching support from our young coaches, where possible we will accommodate these requests. However please remember if there are any costs involved it is the teams who should be paying the coaches for example if you are paying a young coach £10 to coach at your training session then the cost is paid by the team (parents normally have a whip round) .

The reason for raising this is that several teams (last season) said they were not aware of these rules and the club has ended up paying these costs every month. This will not be the case this season.

Back to the top

Highfield Park

Last year we had a few issues at Highfield Park during the season, these ranged from lights left on in the Pavilion, the Pavilion being left unlocked, Gate left unlocked and rubbish left on the fields (Water bottles etc). This season can we ensure that we switch off, lock up and pick up, basically leave the place as we would like to find it.

In addition, over the Summer lots of work has been carried out at Highfield, reseeding, fertilising, vertidrain and coming up shortly more sanding on Pitch 11. This has cost a lot of money hence look after Highfield.

Back to the top

Safeguarding

Just another reminder please check that your Safeguarding certification is up to date, if not then please put it right. To check go to the Herts FA website and log into Members Services with your FAN Number.

Remember:

1. The individual stops any involvement as a coach until he has a valid DBS

2. If you have a parent who wishes to get more involved and wishes to help out then before the start they must have a DBS Check

For any of the above contact Ian or Mervyn to start the DBS process.

Back to the top

Online Player Registration System

The new online system for Club Player Registration is live and going well with almost 800 players registered and paid up. However, there are around 48 players who have registered on the system but have yet to pay their registration fee. The parents would have received and email in the last few days as a chaser, I will be emailing out to the managers concerned this week asking them to chase if payment is not forthcoming. We do have a Hardship policy in place but none of those I am referring to have asked for this to be considered and to be frank we are talking about almost £8k outstanding.

Back to the top

October Coaching Camp

The next coaching camp will be over the October Half Term from 23rd to 27th October, this time at Nicholas Breakspear School on the Astro. To book go to www.cityyouthfc.co.uk/book

Back to the top

Importance of attending the monthly meeting

The start of this season has been no different from any other season with the following exception, the number of times we must explain things again and again to managers who have not come to meetings. This is now taking up an inordinate amount of time. It is far easier for everyone including us, to be able explain things once. We know that not everyone is able to attend every meeting and there will be times when it is impossible, but if the manager cannot attend please see if you can get one of the parents to attend for you so at least your team is represented.

Back to the top

Tours

Questions are being asked about club tours and can the club organise them? Firstly, we do not have the resource to organise the tours but we can give guidance. We have no problem with teams going on tour providing they comply with the club’s policy (available on the website). However, before teams get to far with the planning it would make sense for them to get a feel for the possible take up of both parents and players. This includes ascertaining the costs and numbers involved as well as deposit requirements.

Back to the top

Mervyn Morgan

Having just had a week away I have taken this time to assess my role within the club. A year has passed since we lost Dave and bearing in mind Dave and I (over more than 30 years) did all our work at the club together, as a team, I have found that what was once a pleasure is now becoming a burden. Before I go any further It is only fair that I speak with Ian and the rest of the committee about my decision after which I will be publish a statement.

Back to the top

Press Secretaries Report

Please can reports be sent in on time (failure to do so will lead to 'name and shame'!). Remember to send in your reports via Text Message.

Back to the top

Any other business

Several managers commented that the Coerver coaching support has been a great success so far with a wide range of age groups using it so far.

Sarah Kropman - Note for Under 18 teams - look out for University Open days as they often clash with matches.

Ian Woods - There is spare equipment at Highfield to be taken if teams are short.

Geoff Watts announced that Paul Thompson (36) (one of Geoff’s former players) has sadly passed away in the past few weeks. Paul played over 200 times for St Albans City Youth. He was a centre back known for his honesty, calmness and reliability and was captain of his team for five years.
