A further update from MNL after the latest advice last Sunday from the Prime Minister.
The MNL has met (virtually) to consider the options available to us given the latest government advice. We cannot see that there is any real possibility of starting either junior, adult or Emeralds netball in the next 3 months. It is impossible to be able to exercise any type of social distancing when playing netball so the Committee is focusing on starting back to netball in the early autumn. Of course if government guidance changes we will reconsider and will look to facilitate some opportunities to play friendly matches if at all possible. We are in touch with Rainham Girls School and have an agreed plan in place should we consider it safe to be able to play netball
The Committee is now looking to early autumn to restart and propose the following:
Emeralds – to restart in the hall and observe as far as possible social distancing for parents and spectators l
Junior league will be able to restart quickly once the go ahead is granted but we are also looking at how we can manage some social distancing.
Adult league – if we can start in autumn we propose to run the summer league season 2020 over the winter months. Given conversations we anticipate there will be a demand for this and so we are asking now if teams would be interested in playing the summer league over the winter months. Please do let your divisional rep know your views. We will try and accommodate changes and we appreciate there may be individuals who want to play so we will try and accommodate that and put people in teams if there is demand
We appreciate these are challenging times and we will try and support you all as much as we can to get back to netball when it is safe to do so. We are also looking to see what England Netball will say about the membership – renewals would normally be due in August but we obviously have not been able to play since March. We will send updates through as soon as we receive information
If you have any questions please contact your divisional rep/Emeralds link or any member of the Committee.
Take care, stay safe and be alert!
Best wishes to you all and your families
Steph Brivio on behalf of MNL

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY: TBA
PLEASE BE REMINDED to not put registration cards and money in the Results Box. Any Registration Cards posted will not be passed on by the Results sectary until our next committee meeting so you could run the risk of playing unregistered players.
If you are trying out a player and they have EN membership you cannot play them as a taster player, that category is restricted to non members only.
You would need to pay Medway registration and complete a new reg card too. If they wanted to change teams they would then be subject to transfer rules re the Constitution.
For the moment if you add new players proof of EN membership is required.
Don’t lose points on technicalities!
New Registration card available to download now from Documents *can be submitted in advance of playing to Div.Reps without players signature required but, MUST be signed by team secretary. However, if registering on the night to play, should be completed and signed by both player and team secretary.
Note. All result cards must be received within seven days of the match, be fully legible and fully completed, include each player’s name in full and be signed by both umpires. The name of the team submitting the card must be clearly written on the front of the card. One point will be deducted from an offending team for non compliance.
