League to try and sort out a fine mess

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

THE ChromaSport & Tro­phies Peter­bor­ough League are work­ing to sort out a fine mess!

League chiefs are so de­ter­mined to drive down a moun­tain of fines that they are lay­ing on free work­shops for their clubs on Tues­day.

A to­tal of £6,720 was dished out in fines dur­ing last sea­son - and in­cred­i­bly that fig­ure is more than £1,000 down on the pre­vi­ous cam­paign.

League devel­op­ment di­rec­tor Wendy Newey said: “There is a com­mon mis­con­cep­tion that we are only in­ter­ested in tak­ing clubs’ money, but that couldn’t be fur­ther from the truth.

“We are com­mit­ted to work­ing with clubs to make sure they com­plete their pa­per­work cor­rectly so as we can con­tinue to bring down the to­tal of fines.

“The fig­ure dropped by more than £1,000 last sea­son and I would like to think next sea­son it will have fallen to be­low £5,000.

“The frus­trat­ing thing is that teams only tend to make mi­nor er­rors which could be put right with a lit­tle more care and at­ten­tion.

“That is why we have de­cided to lay on these work­shops on Tues­day to take club of­fi­cials through what they should be do­ing.”

The hour-long, free-of-charge work­shops will run at Ch­est­nut Av­enue at 10.30am, noon and 1.30pm on Tues­day. Places can be booked by con­tact­ing the Peter­bor­ough League of­fice on 01733 566605.
