Mr.Commins explained that where possible, those teams with a preference for Fog Lane


would play their home games there, but there would unfortunately be some occasionswhere they would have to use Hough End instead. However, Mr.Noone explained thatthose teams playing at Fog Lane would be due a partial refund on their pitch fees as aresult. This would come at the end of the season after calculations by him and theleague management committee.36. REPORTS OF LEAGUE OFFICERSThe various League Officers submitted their reports for the ensuing five weeks.Responding to a question about the current bad weather, Mr.Caldwell suggested thatteams speak to each other and their appointed referee on the Friday before the game –if the three all agreed that pitches would be unplayable on the Sunday then the leaguewould accept the game being called off. The referee must be central to this process,teams are not permitted to cancel fixtures unilaterally – if they were to do so theywould be guilty of a non-fulfilment.37.
