Summary: of the responses 86% rated the tournament as excellent. The responses represented about a third of participants (bearing in mind that no NPL managers responded). !00% of respondents said that they would attend another event. Pitches were good.
Couple of complaints about toilets (too far away!), overpriced food & refreshments
WP: how many responded? – roughly a third
JC: CS recommends increasing to £40
WP: what about similar model to Brockham i.e.not pay on the door? offset this on cost of entry?
Chair would like minuted special thanks to ground staff for pitches, and for their cooperation for the event.
JC: want to be shadowed next year so that he can step away the year after.
Summary from Secretary: increasing teams by 3 next season. Good move to EBFA away from E&E (less admin, teams report positive season)
SP: suggest our refs report fines to us for home games instead of the FA, so that we can fine players directly and get the revenue rather than the FA
Allison McGann has stepped down as EBFA Secretary. JC to take this role because nobody else has volunteered. WP noted that the additional workload on the Chair is not acceptable and we should find someone. SP offered to go to the EBFA meetings, while JC would do the registration. AGREED.
WP agreed to take on ref management from JC to ease his workload.
JC to circulate role of child welfare. FA prefer a club to have 2 officers – hence asst role. TC will carry on role until a substitute is found. Will also need an asst.
- Assistant Child Welfare Officer
- Social Secretary
- Sponsorship Coordinator
- (Kit coordinator – see below)
Roles needing new volunteer
- EBFA Secretary
- Child Welfare Officer
WP: need to create and maintain role descriptions for all voluntary roles
Signed a deal with Nike, which will save us money in long term, as well as providing some other benefits:
- £2700 to spend on coaching courses.
- £11.25 credit to spend on next year
- courtesy tickets & events
We will phase the current kits out and phase in Nike Park (as teams require). JC has created a list of teams that are eligible (2 year rotation)
SP: should have a kit coordinator
