Message from Hampshire FA CEO
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The Aldershot DFA Club Forum is
fast approaching (January 10th).
The forum will be an opportunity for clubs to get together to openly discuss issues which are facing 11-a-side adult football in the Aldershot District. The evening will give clubs a chance to offer potential solutions on how they would like to see these issues solved.
The evening will be hosted by the Aldershot DFA and facilitated by Hampshire FA staff and it is open to all clubs in the Aldershot DFA area. It will be a fantastic opportunity for clubs to voice their opinion on the current state of Adult football and a unique opportunity to shape changes moving forward.
If you have not yet confirmed your attendance or sent your apologies, please do so by contacting Pedro Viveiros via email: Pedro.Viveiros@HampshireFA.com or telephone: 01256 853 009 no later than 8th January 2018.

behalf of this Association and Hampshire Football Association.
On Wednesday 10th January 2018, at Aldershot Town FC, there will be a Club
Forum to which we would like to invite as many club representatives from the
area as possible.
Attendance is free, and there will be food provided. We would highly recommend that wherever possible clubs send along representatives to this very important evening.
Please contact Pedro in the Hants FA office (see his email address below) to confirm your club's place(s) at this forum.
Thank you to La Manga Sports Tours
At the recent Aldershot Divisional Football Association AGM all attending clubs were entered into a draw for a new football kit for the 2017-18 season. The winners were Yateley United and their Chairman Richard Pascoe is pictured receiving the new kit from Jordon Castle of La Manga Sports Tours, who donated the kit.
Also in the picture are Mike Gardner, ADFA Chairman of the ADFA (right) and Martin Castle, ADFA General Secretary.
Gardner said “The purpose of the ADFA is to help develop and support all football in the area and we are delighted to be able to give one of our teams a new kit for the coming season. We are especially grateful to La Manga Sports Tours for their generous offer in sponsoring this kit.”

Cup Competitions Reminders
Although the Association's Handbook containing our Cup Rules and additional instructions are regularly sent to the Clubs competing in our Invitation Challenge Cup Competitions, there seems to be some confusion by some Clubs due to their usual Rules differing to the Association Cup Rules.
Therefore, the Association's Cup Committee wishes to remind the competing Clubs of the following key match-day related extracts of the Rules (please refer to the Handbook for complete Rules), together with the hints and advice (text in blue):
