Managers & Coaches Hub

Thank you to our Managers and Coaches for volunteering for the 2019 Winter Season. You are instrumental to ensuring our players enjoy their Football season.

This is a record breaking season for Penno FC - but more importantly, we look forward to a season filled with fun, laughs and new friendships. You should find all the information you need regarding the new season here. If you cant find what you're after, please reach out to your Age Manager. Equally, if you identify any additional information which might be useful to publish here, or something could be articulated more clearly, please also escalate these ideas to your Age Manager. The Club is here to support you throughout the Season, you need only ask for help if you need it. 

Team Managers and Coaches checklist

Mini team and short for players? In mini age groups not only can you ask other same-aged or younger PennoFC teams to sub in extra players (via TeamApp), you can also approach the opposition Manager on game day and either seek to borrow an opposition player or agree to less players on the field to ensure a fair equal-sided game. It’s all about fun and learning skills in the Mini age groups, so with all the flexibility available there should be no reason for our littlest PennoFC stars to ever miss games due to a PennoFC forfeit.

Failure to use e-Teamsheets per procedure will result in fines or forfeit for U10's and up

GHFA have commenced issuing fines and applying forfeits for teams not using e-Teamsheets correctly. Please ensure you are aware of the procedures

The By Law says:

If a completed teamsheet is not submitted for checking prior to the start of the match, the opposition manager must advise the referee of the situation prior to the commencement of the match. The referee shall consult with the other team manager, and if the team sheet is not subsequently submitted, the referee shall submit an incident report to the Association that the teamsheet was not submitted for verifying prior to match commencement. The Association shall review the reason for non-submission, and determine if any penalties shall apply, including the forfeit of the match if no valid mitigating circumstances apply.

GHFA have advised 21 June of a proposed amendment to this By Law as follows:

If a completed teamsheet is not submitted, by one or both teams, for checking prior to the start of the match, the Association shall review the reason for non-submission, and determine if any penalties shall apply, including the forfeit of the match, if no valid mitigating circumstances apply.
