New Rule 14:
Clubs in membership of the LEAGUE and desiring to continue membership must make application in writing on official form (supplied by the LEAGUE) to the Secretary not later than July 15th in each year, and submit a copy of their club constitution and regulations by which their members are bound. Non-compliance with this provision will be deemed as meaning that the club or clubs concerned do not seek re-admission. New clubs seeking admission to membership must similarly make an application in writing to the Secretary by the same date.

Addition to Rule 47:
d) Should a club or team fail to complete its fixtures, three points shall be awarded to the disappointed teams for each of the un-played matches, except when a club or team has played less than half (1/2) of its scheduled matches, then its record shall be deleted completely.

New Rule 59:
A Player must be registered on an approved hard copy or electronic FAI League Registration Form obtainable from a member League. A bona-fide Player of a club is one (1) who has signed a properly completed hard copy registration form and paid the appropriate registration fee (if any), duly witnessed by the Club Secretary and received by the League in hard copy or electronic format. A Player is registered for a Club if his registration form has been examined and is considered to be properly completed when stamped or approved in electronic format by a League. A League date stamp or electronic date record shall be the official date of registration. The registration fee for Junior players is €40 and for Youths players is €15.

New Rule 62:
A Player is only eligible to play in a League or Cup match if there is at least one (1) calendar day between the date of receipt of the registration form by the League and the day of a match.

Clubs are reminded of Rule 100: All club team managers must hold coaching qualifications.

Shannon Town A
Due to an administrative error Shannon Town A played an unregistered player in First Division League Cup match against Rineanna Rovers. As the player was not registered the match has been awarded to Rineanna 3-0. The CDSL committee has decided to have a play-off at Cassidy Park between Lifford and Rineanna Rovers to see who meets Kilrush Rangers in the Final at the County Grounds. Clubs are reminded when sending copies of forms by email that they should also send a hard copy of form in the post as if the League does not get a copy of the form the player is not registered. You also need confirmation from the League that your player is registered before he plays. Also a player is only eligible to play in a League or Cup match if there is one (1) calendar day between the date of receipt of registration form by the League and the day of a match. FAI Rule 32 (3)

Oscar Traynor

The Clare League is delighted to announce Donie Garrihy as our new Oscar Traynor manager. Donie brings a lot of experience, quality and enthusiasm to the position. He previously served as assistant manager under the late Hugh Kelly and John O'Malley. He knows what's involved to be successful in the competition and we are confident that we have appointed the right man to the position that can give us the best chance of being successful. Donie brings a top class backroom team with him. David Russell is one of the most respected soccer men in Clare who has served as captain of Clare and his club Avenue for many years. He was the only man for the position according to Donie and we all look forward to working with him. Denis Hynes is a UEFA A qualified coach who is also the FAI Development Officer in Clare. His knowledge of players and the game is second to none and he completes a quality management team for the season ahead.

Clare Youths

The Clare League is also delighted to announce Colm Ryan as our new Youths manager. Colm is an excellent manager and coach who was our Oscar Traynor manager in 2011. Recently he has been involved in underage teams with Shannon Town. While it's not easy for us to compete for honors in this competition due to a number of our better players moving to League of Ireland clubs we have appointed a man who can make us competitive this season and continue the progress made under Mark Moloney last season. Gerry Kelly is an excellent coach who has completed his Youths Cert with the FAI. He was involved in the backroom team with manager Liam Murphy when we reached the Oscar Traynor Final in 2014. Bill Boyd completes the backroom team. He has a lot of experience at managing at Youths level and is another excellent coach.

EGM / First Delegate Meeting Monday 4th August 2015
Election of Officers

Michael Lydon was elected the new Secretary.
Jason Ryan was elected the new Registrar.

Website
New Clare Soccer website www.claresoccer.net was officially launched at meeting and has already had 1300 hits in first few hours.

Rule Change
New Rule 30 carried unanimously by delegates: A minimum of four meetings of the Management Committee shall be held during the football season and will be convened by the Executive Committee. Notification of such meetings shall be through the Local Press & Email.
- Meetings to take place in August, October, January and March

Promotion / Relegation
No change to promotion from the First Division to Premier Division for the new season so if any B team finishes in the top 3 the promotion place automatically goes to the next placed team in division.

The promotion/relegation play-offs for 3rd placed teams will continue for the new season.

Fundraiser
Clubs agreed to sell 6 x €10 tickets for the FAI National draw as a fundraiser for the League this year.

End of Season Awards
Clubs agreed with running an informal event as an end of season awards night. The League is still looking for 2 or 3 more people to join a committee to run this event.

Payments
Clubs were reminded when paying registration or fines that payment needs to be by cheque, postal order or bank draft. No cash will be accepted.

Grant Applications / Advertising
The legal side of our grant application from 2013 for lights has finally been sorted and payment of grant will go through shortly after we send on some final documentation later this week.

The League will be applying for a grant in 2016 to build a stand at the County Grounds. To help fundraise for the new stand the League will be selling advertising signs to businesses at the Grounds for €300 for the first year & €200 after that. Initially the League will incur most of the cost of signs and installation but long term this will bring in a regular income. Any businesses interested in purchasing an aluminium 7 x 3 sign can contact any member of the Executive for details.

New Managers
The League has not appointed an Oscar Traynor or Inter-League Youths manager yet. Donie Garrihy is the only candidate in the running for the Oscar Traynor position and he is currently finalising his backroom team before talking to the committee. It's expected he will be ratified in the next 2 weeks. The League is still interested in hearing from applicants for the Inter-League Youths manager position.

Free Weekends
Requests for free weekends during the season should be emailed to Donal Kirby "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. giving a minimum of 2 weeks notice.

New Season
The new season will be kicking off on Sunday 23rd August with full round of league games in the Premier Division and league cup games in all other divisions.

A start date for the U17 League will be announced when the CSSL U16 League finishes. Registration for U17 teams is a club registration fee of €100 to cover all players.

If you can't enter a team on your own we encourage clubs to talk to their neighbours and see if you can join up to enter a team. It's important for the long term future of the game that we get more players and clubs playing at underage. There is no issue with 2/3 clubs in an area joining up to enter a team and those players will still be available for your own club when needed.
