A Chara,


Following a meeting on March 20th it has been decided to run the North Tipp football championship on a league basis again this year.  The following points should be noted:



1.       Games are 20 minutes a side.


2.       There are some slight rule changes from last year’s competition. Players may only take one hop and one solo or else two solos (toe to hand) before moving on the ball. Girls must play by the boy’s rules ie. Girls are not permitted to pick the ball directly off the ground.


3.       2 points are to be awarded for a win and 1 for a draw. The teams with most points qualify for the North Final. If the final group game is the deciding game (ie. Both teams have won their previous games) and it ends in a draw then extra time must be played (7mins a side).


4.        If a final ends in a draw 7 minutes a half of extra time is to be played. A representative of the teams who qualify for the finals should contact me beforehand so I can arrange for medals and a trophy to be present on North Final day.



5.       Schools to make their own arrangements re: fields, dates, referees etc.



6.       If a referee wishes to claim expenses he must fill out a referee’s report form and return it to Willie Lennox, Coolbawn, Nenagh. Individual blitz games may not be claimed for as a full match and must be filled in as such on the report form.



7.       North Tipperary Finals must be played by Friday, October 19th.


8.       County Tipperary Finals fixed for Wednesday, October 24th.


9.       It has been agreed where a caretaker sets up a field, dressing rooms, nets, flags etc. each school would contribute Є10 to the caretaker.



10.   All football trophies from 2011/2012 may be left into Nenagh Watch Centre
