Respect scoring after Dec 2022 matchdays

Well done to all the junior teams who received 100% respect scores from the referees after all their matches so far this season. Those teams were entered into a draw to determine the December mid-season winners from both the U12 & U16 sections and that was made last night by our website editor Margaret, at the Swallownest FC match. 

Congratulations to Chesterfield FC from the U12’s and Bradford City Amber from the U16’s as they were drawn out by Margaret. Each player from those teams will receive a Mitre England football as a reward and recognition from the league for their efforts at the next set of fixtures on the 22nd of January 2023. Photos of the draw to follow.

Of the 20 teams involved in the junior league it is extremely pleasing that 14 of those received 100% respect scores and the other 6 had averages over 90%. The scores for each team includes the behaviour of not only the players but also the team’s officials and their spectators. The overall averages have been terrific and so every club should be proud of their contributions in maintaining the high standards of respect in our league. 

Respect scores will be collected from the referees at all the remaining fixtures and rewards will be made again at the end of the league season, where hopefully we have more than 14 teams being entered into the draw. 

The league committee would like to wish you all a healthy and happy new year!

Best Wishes 

Mike & SYACL committee.

2022 SOUTH YORKSHIRE ABILITY COUNTS RESPECT CODE WINNERS TO BE DRAWN THIS FRIDAY !

 This season, the Junior Leagues of the South Yorkshire Ability Counts League have been participating in the Sheffield and Hallamshire FA Respect and Reward Scheme.

However, to improve the opportunities for our Junior teams to appreciate the importance of respect and sportsmanship, the South Yorkshire Ability Counts League Committee took the decision to run a parallel rewards scheme for our younger participants, noting that the Darren Warner Fair play Award has been awarded to our 7-a-side and 5-a -side adult teams for a couple of years now.

So, the 2022/2023 Matchdays have been scored. Of 20 participating sides, 14 have achieved a 100 per cent score, and so will be included in a draw to take place this Friday, 30th December  to determine which clubs will receive the prizes of an England match football (pictured). There will be winners in both the Under-16’s and Under 12’s categories, and both will receive a ball.

League Chairman Mike Stylianou commented “It’s very pleasing that the vast majority of teams have achieved 100% scores – but the teams who haven’t will have the opportunity to catch up during the second half of the season when we will be making a further award. None of the discipline issues we had were serious and were managed well on the days by our referees and coaches.

The draw will be made by our SYACL Website editor Margaret Gregory. Margaret is also the Secretary at Swallownest FC, so it’s appropriate that the draw will be made at the NCEL fixture between Swallownest and Selby Town this Friday evening at Rotherham Road.

We’ll declare the results on our website and Twitter feeds, and the presentations to the winning teams will be made at our next Juniors Matchday at Goals Centre Doncaster on 23rd January 2023.

Premiership Under 16 sides participating in the first draw will be Chesterfield Community Trust FC, Barton Inclusive (Hull) Bradford City Disability FC Amber and Sheffield FC Disability Blue, along with Hillsborough Hornets (Black), Club Doncaster Titans (White) , and Sheffield FC Disability (Black) from the Championship.

In the Under-12’s category, Chesterfield FC Community Trust FC, Club Doncaster Titans Blue, Sheffield FC Disability Red, Bradford City Disability Diamonds and Hillsborough Hornets (Orange)  will represent the Premiership, with Hillsborough Hornets (White) and Club Doncaster Titans (Red) entering from the Championship.

Good luck to all, and look out for the draw at www.southyorkshireabilitycountsleague.com
