To achieve a share all players and club officials should think, Play Fair and Respect Decisions.
This season Red and Yellow Cards are being recorded along with any other offences that are reported by Match Officials.

|Caution Offence 1||Caution Offence 2||Caution Offence 3||Points|

As has been widely reported, there was a National League System Step 5 / 6 Leagues Meeting held via Microsoft Teams on Friday.
There were reports via Social Media and other reporting mechanisms that there were references to ‘Step 7’ in that meeting regarding the 2020-21 Season.
This was not the case – I attach the Slides from the meeting for your information. Our Scenario Planning has explored Steps 1-6.
Regional NLS Feeder Leagues are sanctioned by the relevant County FA and as such, the Guidance published by your County FAs (based on the Grassroots Guidance) around restart will assist your Leagues in their planning.
There are, of course many ‘what ifs’ in the planning we are all undertaking. For example, if we were to have a heavily impacted Season due to a later restart, we may need to consider consistent approaches to Regional NLS Feeder Leagues to assist with Promotion Candidates to Step 6, however this is not yet been undertaken in detail. If we need to consider such an approach we will advise.
We will be writing to all of the 2019-20 Step 7 promotion candidate Clubs to inform them that:
Thank you to all of you for sending through your draft Constitutions. I appreciate many of you are wishing to know when these will be ratified. The ratification is on Agenda for the next Leagues Committee on July 14th. In regards to AGMs. Leagues will be able to decide how best they wish to manage this either by delaying AGM till after this date or continuing with the current AGM and either put a note that Constitution’s will need future approval by any agreed means. Due to the unprecedented times we are in, we do not think that anyone is going to raise the point that AGM’s are being held after the normal deadline. The FA nor County FA’s are going to raise any concern by a delayed AGM during the pandemic.
Note that this document is planning for the National League System and has been attached as it's referenced by the FA in their message, this League will work with the Gloucestershire FA on the restart.
Following interviews, I am delighted to advise you all that Graham McNulty has been appointed as the new Referees Appointment Officer.
We look forward to Graham joining the Management Committee and wish him every success in the role. I hope that all clubs will also support Graham.
Firstly, and most importantly I very much hope you are all well in these unfamiliar times we all find ourselves in. Let us hope that we are all back to normal sooner rather than later.
May I take this opportunity to introduce myself. I have just been appointed as the new Referee Appointments Officer for Gloucestershire County League and I want to provide you all with a little background information about myself. I very much look forward to meeting with you all in person over the coming months and throughout the duration of the season.
To date I currently hold the role of Match Appointment Officer for the Gloucestershire Under 18 mid-week Floodlit league, as well as the referee secretary for the Cheltenham Youth League and I am a member of the referees committee at the Gloucestershire FA. In addition, I am the mentor co-ordinator for the North of Gloucestershire as well as a tutor/coach for newly qualified and active referees. In addition, I am operating at Level 4 referee status and intend to continue with this.
I very much look forward to meeting you all and working with you next season and beyond.More Here
