WHAT'S A MATCH MARSHAL? WHAT DO THEY DO?
WHY DO WE NEED THEM?

                                      

Have you been asked to be a Marshal at your partner or child’s or mate’s match?  Has anyone told you what it’s all about?  Chances are that you’ve just been told to “sign here” and “put this lovely orange vest on”, but there’s just a little more involved.  Before you read on, let us start by saying, on behalf of your team, your club and our sport, thanks for agreeing to be a marshal.

Marshals, much like the wild west days, are in place to keep order and to be the go-to person for the Referee if there’s a concern for safety or if the sideline (your spectators) are getting out of order.  You’re there to help and to report if there’s ever any incident that requires reporting.

OTHER FOOTBALL NEWS

SOME HELP WITH TEAM SHEETS

Team sheets for competition teams are audited each week to ensure player eligibility, record of the match results and disciplinary information is correct and up to date.  Fines and/or Loss of Points apply to certain breaches.  Clubs are asked to provide this information to all teams in competition age groups at the start of the year, but in the rush, this is sometimes overlooked.

LAWS OF THE GAME

Law 10 - The Method of Scoring

Goal scored
A goal is scored when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, between the goalposts and under the crossbar, provided that no infringement of the Laws of the Game has been committed previously by the team scoring the goal.

Winning team
The team scoring the greater number of goals during a match is the winner. If both teams score an equal number of goals, or if no goals are scored, the match is drawn.

Competition rules
When competition rules require there to be a winning team after a match or home-and-away tie, the only permitted procedures for determining the winning team are those approved by the International F.A. Board, namely:
• away goals rule
• extra time
• kicks from the penalty mark

Goal-line technology (GLT)
GLT systems may be used for the purpose of verifying whether a goal has been scored to support the referee's decision. The use of GLT must be stipulated in the respective competition rules.
