29 managers have so far registered their teams to play in this season’s Youth Cup.
All but 3 were helpful enough and/or able to register using the Google Form I made, which I’m asking managers to complete to save time for me as I’m likely to have much less time this season than last.
Even just registering your team name and manager name is helpful as it means I don’t have to do it.
If you can spare five minutes to enter your best eligible players with their ratings, that is also a massive help, as the form automatically converts to a spreadsheet at my end and calculates the team average ratings for me.
If you can register your players’ dates of birth, too, the spreadsheet automatically checks that they are eligible to play. You’d be surprised how many ineligible players have been registered already! (Yes, I do message managers to let them know and choose an alternative.)
A couple of managers have not been able to edit their form once submitted. I don’t know why this, and I’m sorry for the hassle of then having to re-submit your team.
If you copy, save, favourite or bookmark the “Edit your response” link at the end of the form once you have submitted it, it SHOULD work! (I tested it just now.)
Average Team Ratings
If Andrew and Gordon could let me have their average team ratings, please! And if anyone thinks their average team rating is wrong, please let me know. The ratings will be used to seed teams for the group stage.
The earliest possible start date for fixtures is next Saturday 16 June, but it looks like we will be well down on numbers this season, so it’s much more likely now to be 23 June or even 30 June when this season’s Youth Cup kicks off. Which gives us plenty of time to generate a bit more interest.
