Don’t forget if you or any member of your club aged 21-40 and fit are looking for a job or perhaps a change of career to a rewarding one working and assisting some of the most disadvantaged children then to contact our sponsors New Forest Care. Contact details on the picture above.

Any staff member recruited who confirms the club they got the information from will see that club awarded £250. 
We are still on the look out for a physio to assist us on the day of the game itself. Please contact Dean Inman or Rich Bessey if you or you know someone available on the 30th September.
The trial fixture was played last Tuesday at Hayling United and a very keenly contested game finished 
Our thanks to Hayling United for agreeing and superbly organising the game.
We know move onto the game itself, this coming Saturday, which I am lead to believe is our first ever home tie after 7 away ties in previous seasons. If you or your team are not playing this Saturday, please come along and give the league your support. Its at Hamble Club FC with a 3pm kick off. Admission costs are £3 for adults and £1 for concessions. 
Unfortunately in the past few weeks both Hedge End Rangers and Michelmersh & Timsbury have advised the league they are unable to continue with their Combination Division teams this season. All matters involving these will be dealt with at our next committee meeting.
If you wish to register a new player who when you add him does not have a FAN number already, please immediately email HFA & Pete Lynes, the players name and date of birth and once the FAN number is issued by HFA, we will back date the registration to the date and time of the email if not received that day. The fact that the system will say it’s an “Emergency Registration” can be ignored.
If you do not, then the registration will not be dated but approved on the day that it is received in the pending file. Any registrations “signed” on the day of the match for combination division matches, but don’t arrive in the pending file until Sunday (or the day after the match etc) will be backdated to 12pm (Sats) & 5pm (Weekdays). The fact that the system will say it’s an “Emergency Registration” can be ignored.
A reminder that only 2 players can be signed on the day of the game. Please get the referee to sign next to the players’ name on the team sheet. The registration cut off times have not changed. It is still 6pm prior to the day of the game.
During the latter stages of the transfer process between HPFL clubs, the registration secretary will first approve the transfer then cancel the existing registration allowing the “losing” club to detach the player from their club.
Dual registering players signed for Sydenhams and Wyvern League Clubs
Just as a common courtesy, please can you also email Sydenhams and Wyvern League clubs as you would have previously if you wish to dual register one of their players. We have also asked them to do likewise. This is because their secretaries may not see your notice of approach on the Whole Game System. The Sydenhams League in particular are not using the WGS system this season.
Please email Pete Lynes if a Sydenhams or Wyvern League Clubs dual sign one of your players so that we can make sure that their HPFL registration isn’t cancelled. If no dual registration is involved, please email Pete Lynes so that the player’s HPFL is cancelled. Please remember that you must put in a 7 day approach to any club playing Saturday football for dual registration. 
If you notice the kick off time on Full Time is not what you have agreed (Outside Cup Competitions in particular) please let the secretary know to enable it to be kept as accurate as possible.
There was an issue earlier this evening regards fixtures on 14th October for Senior Division clubs showing as having a league fixture as well as a league cup fixture on the same day. This has now been rectified. Apologies for any confusion.
Secretary’s Unavailability by Phone This Week Please note that for various reasons, the secretary is not available to be contacted by phone until Friday this week. Please email any queries you may have and I will endeavour to answer them when getting home either later that evening or early the following morning.
The league are pleased to announce the return of the small projects grant scheme, where clubs can apply for up to £500 from the league for things such as re-painting the clubhouse/changing rooms, new dug outs etc.  The scheme will accept applications upto and including 31st December this year.
A copy of the application form can be downloaded from the league’s full time page or please email Paul Proctor to request a copy. Four Marks, QK Southampton, Stockbridge and Upham have all had their grant requests confirmed. 
Any club wishing to put one of their match day officials/volunteers on the Hampshire FA First aid course to give you additional medical coverage at your matches, the league are willing to reimburse the cost (£25) once your representative has completed it. A list of current courses and their venues in Portsmouth / Totton / Basingstoke can be found on the Hampshire FA website.
