Teams wishing to play at U21s season 2019-2020
As everone knows last year we did not have enough teams enter the Alpha Trophies League to form a U21s age group. Many of our U19s teams joined the U20s Lowland Dev League instead of taking the previous route to U21s football within the SERYFA structure.
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.

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)
