Result secretary duties.
Sort sections out with the special Council each year.
Use the MB results to sort out fixtures
Sort out the team fixtures for the yearly handbook.
Liaise with the League secretary about any anomalies through-out the season
Monitor the starring system at least every 6 weeks if not more, check that teams do not list players who are not going to play and are starred at the start of the season.
Attend SC meetings to keep them up to date with the league.
Send the results and tables to the local press and sponsors each week.
Correct any mistakes made by the players input of results
The list can go on and on, try to not antagonise too many people is the main concern but an impossible task because to implement our rules you always are accused of favouring one club against another. The results secretary must always remain neutral in every way.
Website manager needs no guide it is there to keep members up to date with competitions etc.
Prepare the handbook each year for the printers, delete and change any rules past by the members at the AGM.
Notify all sponsors of the coming events which they are invited to attend and to make sure they wish to continue their sponsorship.
Prepare the AGM and notify all club secretaries when at what will be on the agenda.
Call the meetings of the SC and notify the Chairman of the agenda.
Keep in contact with all the officials, either by email or phone.
Send correspondence to the clubs who have broken any rules of the association.
Collect all the association trophies and have them engraved with the winner’s names.
Once again much more but mainly to keep the general working of the association on an even keel.
Just a reminder the SC do not make the rules it is done by the member clubs who send a representative to each years AGM, any rule that a club does not agree with can be voted on and kept or deleted, or they can propose a new rule to be voted on.
The present incumbents have not claimed any expenses for, computers, printers, ink, telephone calls etc. but this is not to say expenses cannot be claimed.
Please note the 21 day is now extended to 28 days but you must comply with this otherwise there will be a fine or deduction of points to the offending team.
Do Not forget you enter your own scores in either league or cup games which saves time and cost to your club, use your club login code and go to the relevent result you wish to enter, just follow the instructions which are at the top of the page.
