Frequently Asked Questions

Cups

IS IT A REPLAY IF A CUP TIE ENDS IN A DRAW?
No. In the Landlords and League Cups, if the scores are level after 90 minutes, extra-time and penalties shall decide the winner. In the Supplementary Cup a draw is a draw and a point is awarded until the knockout stages where extra-time and penalties decide the winner.

HOW MANY GAMES DO YOU HAVE TO PLAY TO QUALIFY FOR CUP SEMIS AND FINALS?
Three. So it is essential to tick which subs appeared on your pink team sheet.
Qualifying matches are:
League Matches
Landlords Trophy Matches
League Cup Matches
Supplementary Cup Matches

IS THERE A CUT-OFF DATE FOR SIGNING PLAYERS FOR CUP FINALS AND SEMIS?
Yes. A player must be registered before 1st March to qualify for the League Cup Semis and Final.
A player must be registered before 31st December to qualify to play in a Landlords Trophy Semi or Final.
This is to protect your players and prevent teams bringing in 'ringers' for the big games.

IF WE WIN A CUP OR LEAGUE TITLE, HOW MANY MEDALS WILL WE GET FOR OUR PLAYERS?
Each winning team (and the Cup runners up) will be presented with 16 mementoes.
Extra mementoes can be provided at cost price (Plus P&P) by applying to the League Secretary. So no-one misses out!
