Request for minutes silence from Cramond FC 2005's for Lewis Johnson

Sadly in July of this year Lewis Johnson one of Cramond FC 2005's players tragically lost his life whilst he was on holiday in Mexico.
Everyone at SERYFA would like to express our deepest sympathies to Lewis family, friends and team mates at this sad time

Cramond FC 2005's have requested that we ask all 2005's teams playing their first game of the season this weekend if they could please observe a minutes silence in respect for Lewis,
I have attached a copy of the message be that we received from Cramond FC.

For people dealing with children as coaches or Child Welfare Protection officers.

Some of you may be aware of the work of the Paediatrician Dr Nadine Burke- Harris on the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences ( A.C.Es) on health and well-being (physical, mental, socio-economic etc etc).
You may also be aware that, locally and nationally, there is growing, multi-disciplinary recognition of the significant impact of A.C.Es on children and on the adults they become.

To All League and Regional Secretaries

Dear Colleague
I would be grateful if you could remind all referees appointed for any fixture that they should ensure all players’ boots are inspected prior to kick-off to ensure that their footwear is appropriate for the surface and safe.
I appreciate your assistance in this matter.

Kind regards

I understand there is an urgent need across multiple regions for more additional signatories.

In order to alleviate this pressure, I am going to alter the process for issuing signatory codes with immediate effect.
Nominated trainers will now be able to issue codes directly to their members on successful completion of training.

Please read the below steps carefully as failure to do so may result in the issue of invalid codes or the need for repeat training.

SERYFA Team Lines must be used

Its been noticed that some teams are NOT using the offical SERYFA team lines for their games. The SERYFA official team line can be downloaded from the forms page of our website. Can all teams please download and use official SERYFA team line for all fixtures & friendlies (Except Scottish Cup Ties where team lines from the SYFA must be used)
