opposition. Last minute weather conditions may result in pitch problems and then the referee must
decide if pitch playable.
❖ In the event of a team not fulfilling a fixture (a) such team must travel to opponent’s venue in the
following season (not applicable where there is a new draw for the leagues) and (b) a fine may also
be imposed by the C.C.C..
As per the Covid 19 Guidelines, Teams must submit a complete list of all players (recommend the
use of the Official Team Sheet from the Foireann registration system), in duplicate, to the Referee prior
to the game. The list must clearly indicate the players that will start the game and also any players that
are available to come on as substitutes. It will not be necessary to give the players name to the Referee
for each substitution made. Players may come on and off any number of times during a game, but
only during a break in play and with the permission of the Referee.
If a team has an issue about the eligibility of an opposing player, the Mentor should ask the Referee to
(a) take the player’s name (b) get the players signature and date of birth.
Players are required to wear mouthguards during all matches and practice sessions.
Fixture queries must be addressed to the Co-ordinator in the first instance. For unresolved queries you
can then contact the Coiste na nÓg Secretary, Kathy McCarthy via email.
The points cut-off for ranking of teams in the U-13 County League will be determined on the night of
the final round of the group stage of the competition, irrespective of whether there are any back games
to be played.

neutral venue both teams should change jerseys. In the case of amalgamated teams, the onus is on
