Minutes Applause for Former WJYL Player Tom Jones

Posted: October 2, 2018 | Announcements | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m sure many of you will have read about Tom Jones (Jonah) the 18 year old Worcester uni student who went missing on a night out. His body was later found in the River Severn. Both youth football and West Bromwich Albion were a massive part of Tom’s life, himself playing at a competitive level.  We’ve been contacted by Lorraine Payne, a family friend, who suggested as a mark of respect we could invite all teams to join in a minutes applause before next Sunday’s games – we’re sure this would mean a great deal to his family and friends. If both teams are in agreement please advise players, parents and referees and I’m sure we’d all agree its a lovely tribute to pay to someone close to our league and teams.
Many thanks and our deepest condolences are sent to all of Tom’s friends and family.

Full Time Issues

Posted: September 5, 2018 | Announcements | , , , , , , , ,

As you are probably aware, we are experiencing some teething problems with the new FA system Full Time. Teams should be able to confirm fixtures via the system but some are unable to. Please bear with us whilst these glitches are resolved by the FA.
In the meantime if you already know your opposition number from last season then confirm by phone. Otherwise check if your age group secretary has the number although the Age Group Secretary may contact you. Failing that contact the League Secretary via email or text for the Club Secretary’s number.
Your referees have been confirmed by the Referees Secretary, you only need to contact the Referees Secretary if there is a problem.
