Cup Finals – ID checks, team sheets, cup tied players & no extra time

Cup tied players – Any player who has played in a previous round for another team in the same age group and playing day cannot play for another team in the same age group cup competition as they will be cup tied and therefore ineligible. Any team found to have played an ineligible player will be removed from the competition. Please check and make sure you do not fall foul of this rule.
Cup Rules & ID Checks – Please ensure you have read and understand the cup rules inc ID checks and providing team sheets to the refs – -under rules and regulations.
Extra Time & Penalties – If the scores in the cup finals are level at the end or normal time, THERE WILL BE NO EXTRA TIME. The game will go straight to penalties. Check YEL Rules for details.

Re-registering teams on Scoreline NOW OPEN

CLUB SECRETARIES: As this season draws to a close, it is now time to confirm whether or not your current teams will be continuing next year. Managers/ coaches should get in touch with their club secretaries to confirm whether their team is continuing next season. The process in the YEL is very simple and set out below. All teams names/age groups are current 2022/23 age groups. These automatically age by one year at midnight May 31st/June 1st in readiness for the new 2023/24 season eg YEL Utd U12 Blue will become YEL Utd U13 Blue.

All team headers in the Teams section on Scoreline have been changed to blue. These indicate the teams where no action has been taken yet by the club. Once you have decided on whether a team is continuing or not, follow the instructions below. If the team is continuing – you tick ‘confirm.’ If a team is not continuing – you click ‘remove.’ Once you click ‘save’ the header in the main ‘Teams’ page will change to green for the ‘confirmed and continuing’ and red for those ‘not continuing’. Only teams that are ‘confirmed’ will roll through/age at midnight on May 31st. All others will be removed from the league and any teams wishing to continue after the roll through will need to reapply. No invoices will be raised until June 1st when we know which teams are continuing. Current U14 will need to be ticked as ‘remove’ as they will had come to the end of their YEL experience.

ONLY available to Club Secs/club officials with appropriate permissions to make changes on Scoreline.
