Double Headers

The League preference is to avoid double headers but in certain cases these are necessary as is the case for this season.

Rule 10.a sets out the policy concerning double headers which states

The pitch and Referee expenses will be shared 50% each by the teams involved. 
The team whose home pitch is used shall collect the monies due and pay the Referee.
