WASHED OUT GAMES - SUNDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER
Date Posted: 21 Sep 2020

Pursuant to SSFA Rule 18 (reinforced by discussions at a number of recent Club General Meetings and the EC Meeting of Tuesday 18 August 2020) it has been determined that the incomplete matches from Round 12 Sunday 20 September will not be re-drawn. That is, catch up matches for incomplete Sunday Round 12 games will not be played.

Accordingly, as each team in the effected age /grade has not been provided an opportunity to earn three points (i.e. a win), the results from all matches that were otherwise completed for the respective ages/ grades that were impacted will be voided. The Results and the Tables will be updated accordingly.

The ages/ grades that are impacted are listed below:

W18A, W21A, W21C

W38A, W38B

WSX, WSC, WSF

35B, 35C, 35D, 35E, 35F

45A, 45C

AL4, AL5, AL7, AL8, AL9, AL10, AL11, AL12, AL13, AL14

 

 
FORFEIT FINES - LAST 3 ROUNDS
Date Posted: 10 Sep 2020

Forfeit fines have now increased for the final 3 rounds unless there are extenuating circumstances*.

The fines are as follows:

U12 to U18: $200 per offence
U21+: $400 per offence

Therefore, it cannot be stressed enough that you should borrow players so you dont forfeit. As per current rules, if you have 7 or more, you must field that team.

* Extenuating circumstances: Teams who play games with ineligible players (i.e. to get games played) will lose the game on forfeit but will not be fined. Teams are required to inform their opponent and the Referee of such action prior to the commencement of the match and the match sheet noted as a ‘Forfeit’.
