(c) all fixtures will be arranged through the designated staff contact at the school

(e) if, after repeated attempts to arrange a game, the match is not completed, no points will be awarded to either team unless both teams agree who was responsible for the failure to play the fixture. The secretary must be advised in writing prior to the end of the season.

2. Postponements

This applies to postponements within 48 hours of the arranged fixture

Postponements will only be allowed if:

* the member of staff running the fixture is absent from school;

* the playing surface is deemed unsuitable.

A decision is to be made by 12:30 on the day of the match in the case of inclement weather. The away team will be contacted as soon as possible.

It is expected that the fixture will be rearranged as soon as possible after the postponed date.

If a game is postponed for any other reason, the team responsible for the cancellation will forfeit the points.
