Season End Update

All Managers

Below is the proposed format for the end of the SMGFL season.

U10s, U11s and U12s Group 2 will complete their seasons when the current fixtures are finished which will be, weather dependent,

5th June for the U10s

22nd May for the U11s

5th June for the U12s Group 2

The below is proposed for U12s Group 1 and all other groups for U13s through to U16s.

We are going to bring the Re-start competitions to an end on May 22nd. The top 4 teams in each group will play in a semi-final, to be played on June 5th.

To determine the top 4, if teams are tied on points and the place cannot be decided by head-to-head then a play-off will take place on May 29th, with the play-off match going straight to penalties after normal time should the play-off game end in a draw.

If teams that have already both qualified for the top 4 are tied and they are unable to be separated then their position will be decided by a coin toss instead of a play-off.

The semi-finals will be played on a 1st vs 4th and 2nd vs 3rd basis with the team finishing in the higher position to play the game at their ground, and again the game will go straight to penalties should it end in a draw after normal time.

The winners of each semi-final will play in a final on either June 12th or 19th at a neutral central venue.

Sadly, these 'finals' will not be played with the same pomp and ceremony associated with our finals, as this re-start competition was always designed as a fun return to football for the girls, but there will be some token rewards for the winners of the 'finals'.

For all the other teams not involved in these play-off games, the season will end, as above, allowing teams to arrange their own friendlies or prepare for their club tournaments.

Thanks to all the players and managers for enabling us to re-start our league safely, and we will look forward to a more normal season next season.
