Shirt Numbers

How do you remove printed shirt numbers from appearing on the match card?

MiniRoos

This question is not relevant to MiniRoos as shirt numbers are not required.

Competition

Login to your Team Admin portal. Click on ‘Club Shirts’. To remove a number click on the arrow next to the player’s name, click ‘OK’ and the number will be removed.

NOTE: If you choose not to print shirt numbers on your match card, you MUST ensure that you manually write the shirt numbers onto the match card prior to the start of the match. If you forget, NSFA will fine our club $10 per player that is listed on the match card but does not have a shirt number.

 

Match in Dispute

What do you do if you want to put a match in dispute?

MiniRoos

Because MiniRoos is non-competition there is no real need to dispute a match result. Try and work out any issues at the ground. If this is not possible then send a report of the problem to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Competition

Managers should try and settle the dispute at the ground. If this is not possible than a manager can mark the match card ‘Match in Dispute’ at the conclusion of the game. Referees should then hand back the match cards to the managers. The disputing manager must, on the day of the match, notify the NSFA Age Group Co-ordinator or Division Liaison (if you don’t know who this is then contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). The manager then needs to follow the ‘Match in Dispute’ procedure which is set out in the COMPETITION REGULATIONS 2.7.1 Matches in Dispute (a - f).

 

Ineligible Players

What do you do if you think the opposition is fielding an ineligible player?

MiniRoos

Speak to the opposition manager and refer them to the MINIROOS COMPETITION REGULATIONS 2.6 PLAYER ELIGIBILITY. It is a good idea to bring a copy of the regulations to the game with you each week. If the situation cannot be resolved at the ground then send a report of the issue to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Competition

Speak to the opposition manager. Verify the identities of the opposing players using their Photo ID sheet. If the opposition cannot provide photo ID do not sign the match card. Note on the match card that photo ID was not provided. You can also mark the match card as ‘Match in Dispute’ if you feel the ineligible players affected the match result.

Borrowing Players

What players am I allowed to borrow if my team is short?

MiniRoos

Borrowed players must be registered. They must meet the age criteria of the age group and it is recommended that they not play in an age group more than two years higher than which they are qualified. Players cannot play in a lower age group than they are registered, even if they meet age requirements. Try to borrow players of similar ability.

*Please refer to the MINIROOS COMPETITION REGULATIONS 3.6 PLAYER ELIGIBILITY for full details.

Competition

There are very specific rules when borrowing players. Basically, you can only borrow lower division players from your own age group or players from the two lower age groups, providing that they are age eligible (please check on date of birth of borrowed players).

There are also restrictions on borrowing Division 1 players from any age group from within the same competition.

*Please refer to COMPETITION FOOTBALL REGULATIONS 2.6 PLAYER ELIGIBILITY for full details.

 

Match Referees

What do you do if there is no appointed referee?

MiniRoos

It is up to the team managers to negotiate with the opposition to appoint ‘game leaders’ or an ‘instructing referee’ for each match. In the case of U6-U7 one game leader from each team is fair. Point out that it is beneficial even for team coaches to act as game leaders because they can be on the field instructing the players (they just need to do it fairly for both sides).

Competition

When there is not an appointed referee from KDFRA for a competition match the following applies:

Basically it is up to the home team to supply a person to referee plus someone to act as assistant referee (linesman). If the home team hasn’t got someone to referee than the opposition may offer someone to do it. The same person should referee the entire match.

*Please refer to COMPETITION FOOTBALL REGULATIONS ‘2.11.2 Process in the absence of one or more match officials’ for full details and procedure for Men’s Football.
