The League held its AGM on 05 June, and among the key decisions taken were the introduction of an U18 Division, and a change in the time U11 football is played to Saturday mornings. We also welcome 15 new member clubs and wish them an enjoyable time in the Cheltenham Youth League.
Long-serving Chairman Steve Mattos has also stepped down, but will remain on the Management Committee as League Welfare Officer. Everyone is very appreciative of the enthusiasm and attention to detail Steve has contributed during his 29 year involvement in Youth Football, and we are pleased he will continue to be available to offer his experience.
Nigel Newport-Black will now assume the mantle of Chairman and we are sure everyone will wish him well in this new role.

4 September 2013
It is compulsory for teams to exchange Player Registration Cards with their opponents before each fixture
. Following a GFA decision during a hearing last season, the following should be noted:
If a team does not have a card for a player then that player is ineligible and must not play in the match.
If a team has no cards for the entire team (or if only 6 cards or less are available), then the match must not take place. The facts must be reported to the League who will deal with it as a broken fixture, and the defaulting team should pay the referee his/her entire fee and expenses.
If any game takes place then no protest will be entertained thereafter relating to the failure to exchange or produce player ID cards.
