Notes from January Meeting
NOTES FOR JANUARY MEETINGSecretaries Report & Correspondence
Secretaries Report – Matters Arising
As reported at November Meeting Teams are still missing cautions off their match return, the easiest way to avoid a fine and ensure your match report is correct is to ask the referee at the end of the game.
Still waiting on Durham County Football Association re course on Introductory to Coaching Adults, once I have details will let people know. Teams should have completed Members Service by now, if not you need to get it done not a lot of time left? All new teams should have completed their application for Charter Standard in line with League Rules, new teams to advise League Secretary and Peter Livingstone (Charter Standard Co-ordinator) of where they are with application before leaving tonight.
For the last 2 meetings I have been requesting First Aid certificates from a number of Teams, however the following teams have failed to comply with this instruction, Pot & Glass, Sun Inn Athletic and Thornaby Aerodrome Club therefore the matter will be placed before the Management Committee. Also I have not received any First Aid Certificates form the new clubs.

Football Association Suspension Lists Durham County Football Association & North Riding County
Durham County Football Association re Match Based Suspensions
Durham County Football Association re Standard Punishments
Last weekend three teams failed to notify League Secretary of their game being cancelled, can I remind all teams that when a game is cancelled you notify the League Secretary first before anybody else; games were called off last Saturday but teams left until Sunday to advise League Secretary. I knew on Thursday last week that games were not possible looking at the weather and also the forecast, if there is any doubt or you need advice then ring League Secretary.
Whilst on about fixtures please make sure you check the website as there are now changes every week with the postponement of FA and County FA cups, as they take priority over our league fixtures, therefore please bear with us and it may be that you get a fixture with only a week’s notice, if for any reason you do not want a fixture and you are free then you need to let the League Secretary know.
A few teams have an Insurance Invoice in their envelope tonight, some of these are for players who have been registered for some time but we had not been invoiced for the players, they need to be paid on or before the next meeting.
As mentioned in correspondence I have received a copy of the proposed rule changes from the FA for the coming season, most are just tidying up rules or amending. As for us as far as I can see the biggest rule change involves determining league positions. I will read the proposal out as it will change our rule completely if you so wish.
I have also been advised by Durham County Football Association that those Clubs registered next season will again receive £50 towards their league fees; this money is paid to the league and deducted from your payment.
A number of Teams have fines outstanding and overdue, these need to be paid by Sunday, and failure to see this paid will result in the League Rules being applied and another fine being issued. I have not implemented this as yet as I think it may have slipped peoples mind as they were sent out at the end of last year. The teams with outstanding fines are as follows:The Oxbridge, The Swan Billingham, Pot & Glass, Sun Inn Athletic and Thornaby Griffin these are all Good Conduct fines.
Date of the next League Meeting is Wednesday 20 February 2013

Playing into a strong wind Kelloe used their big over six foot target men Gavin Barton and Ian Ward to good effect using high deep crosses putting the Bank under pressure early on after 20 minutes Gavin Barton powered home a bullet header giving keeper Graeme Willey no chance. With having to cope with a lot of high balls in a swirling wind it was putting the Bank back four of Adam Livingstone, Paul Roddam, Anthony Roberts and Jack Williams under a load of pressure with South Bank unable to get into their passing game. Graeme Willey was beaten a second time when a powerful header from Ian Ward ripped into the net to put Kelloe 2-0 up on 35 minutes. In the 40th minute a mishit clearance found Ian Ward on the edge of the box his screamer of a twenty five yard pile driver was destined for the top corner Graeme Willey at full stretch somehow got his hand to it and made the save of the match justly applauded by the astonished watching crowd. Shortly after Ward got a head injury when he and Barton collided going for the same cross. Half time 2-0.
After discussing things during the halftime interval a tactical substitution change was made by South Bank Paul Griffiths came on for Daniel Shields. Kelloe had to make a forced substitution when Nick Gibson came on for Ian Ward. Kelloe kicked off South Bank won the ball and kept possession Harrison Davies rifled home on 46 minutes. Kelloe kicked off South Bank won the ball again and kept it on the floor started passing it about Jack Williams fired home equalising in the 48th minute. Kelloe kicked off again South Bank robbed them of the ball again kept hold of possession until Gerard Livingstone had found space and the net with a scorcher to make it 3-2 to the Bank. Kelloe were shell shocked three goals conceded in a five minute spell they kept to their high ball game and even though they were playing against the wind Bank coped until the 85th minute when Gavin Barton equalised. Another wonder save by Graeme Willey took the game to extra time.
With both teams running out of steam after giving their all, South Bank brought on young Bradley Wright in place of the injured Marty O'Riordan and he was soon in the thick of the action his fresh legs gave the Bank a boost but neither side could get the upper hand and therefore the game went to penalties.
The penalty shoot-out saw both keepers Carl Morris and Graeme Willey save one each out of the five then in sudden death Graeme Willey saved a second and it was up to Adam Livingstone to smack home the winner for South Bank 3-3 FT 3-3 ET 5-4 on penalties.
The game which was played in a tremendous spirit was credit to both teams and their respective Leagues a mention also to the match officials well led by referee Shane Sugden to his and the teams credit he kept a great game flowing.
South Bank AFC thank Eppleton CW the for use of their superb ground and our hosts Kelloe WMC for their after match hospitality.
