Hello TML Team Contacts .

On the 14th September 2021 the TyneMet League has a scheduled Extraordinary General Meeting to close off details that were covered at our recent AGM.

This meeting will be held at the Vertu Motors Arena at 7pm . Parking is free for delegates.


It will be followed immediately by the annual “TML Affiliation Meeting”. This meeting is scheduled to finish no later than 8:30pm.

 Each TEAM is required to send one member (ideally the secretary) to these meetings and failure to do so will incur a £50 penalty. Due to seating limitations, it is recommended that only one member of each team attends. 


The purpose of the EGM is to confirm the number of refereeing commitments that each team is expected to cover ahead of the upcoming season.


The purpose of the Affiliation Meeting will be to confirm each team’s participation in the upcoming season and confirm any new responsibilities. Currently each team is responsible for providing a table official for each of their home games and due to changes to BE regulations each table official is required to have a valid DBS certificate and have recently passed a safeguarding course before they are able to receive a BE licence. Due to the time these two items take to acquire we recommend all clubs ensure their officials start this process ASAP. 


Ahead of the Affiliation Meeting we ask that each team send their £60 League joining fee to the league's bank account (sort code 55-81-19 account number 97700193) and include a reference to the team the payment is made for. Any new CLUBS (specifically Biddick and Newcastle Vikings) are also required to send their £50 bond. This bond will temporarily cover any potential fines/penalties and is held for the duration of your time in the TML. If these fees are not received prior to the 14th September your place in the upcoming season may be effected. 


Area Registrar/Treasurer Neil Rogers will be in attendance and will have a limited number of scorebooks available for any clubs that require them. As these are currently in limited supply, please contact Neil ahead of time if your club requires a scorebook. 



There are also trophies to be returned from the previous season so can any teams in possession of trophies please bring them to the upcoming meeting and Neil can collect them. 


Paperwork for these meetings is contained on the TML Website .
