Could the 5 people who actually read this, pass the information on to the others? Thanks.
A few of the rules/laws of the game have caused some confusion recently. The rules page on this website highlight the important ones, the ones that affect the players directly. Have a read and make yourself familiar with them. In the meantime, here are a couple that have caused problems recently.
A Goalkeeper receives the ball back directly from a team mate to whom they have just passed the ball without the ball having made contact with any other player
This results in an indirect free kick, NOT a penalty. The keeper is not at fault here, it’s the player who passes the ball back to him.
A defending player enters their own penalty area
The result is a penalty kick. The player does NOT have to touch the ball.
Slides in an attempt to play the ball when it is being played or attempted to be played by an opponent (sliding tackle).
Additionally no playing from the floor is permitted.
The result is a direct free kick. This includes if you attempt to play the ball whilst you are grounded.
We play with a ball height restriction, our maximum height is the crossbar on the 7 a-side goals. Anything up to the top of Colin Gibson’s head is fine.
