Following discussions at a recent committee management meeting, we have decided upon a number of areas that we would love to hear your suggestions on. Your contributions will allow us to refine our practice and develop the systems we are currently working with, in order to provide a more efficient service for players, parents and coaches.
The survey will be available until 31st December 2015. After this date, we will collate the results and publish these along with your comments on the website. These will then be discussed at management committee meetings and will hopefully influence our future practice.
Please make the most of this opportunity by logging onto: RDYFL Survey and voicing your opinion on your Rowsley and District Youth League.
Thank you for your support,
Changes to the allocation of match Referees 2015/16
We are moving our referee allocation process onto the FA's Full-Time system. This should make it easier for allocations and ensure there are fewer clashes with referees. In order to find your referee simply click the fixture from within the RDYFL website and the fixture with referee allocation (shown bottom left) will be shown. Then go back to the yellow menu League/Referees Directory on the RDYFL website to find that Referees contact details.
Using full time will allow us to allocate referees for multiple weeks at a time which makes it easier to rearrange should a particular allocation fall through. It also allows for planning closed dates should particular referees require a week off and cannot be allocated a game.
I appreciate at first this may be a little tricky and no doubt some issues will arise from the new method, however as youth football moves into the technological era and we incorporate the Whole Game System into our running of the RDYFL, this should eventually make things easier. My thanks go to Andy Bagshaw, Glenn Smithurst and Sean Newton for their work on this.
As always, I welcome your feedback and support,
Thank you as ever,

Teams must contact the referee allocated on this sheet and must not contact anyone else until they have checked with me first. Let me know if there is a problem.
