Racial Abuse < Rules
To All Club Secretaries, T&DJFL, 2015/2016
LET'S KICK RACISM INTO TOUCH
Re: RACIAL ABUSE
League position on racial abuse for the benefit of existing member and new club's/teams.
Racial abuse has in the past been reported to the management committee. This particular practice is both immoral and a criminal offence. I am pleased to report that there were no incidents last season. The management committee will take any action necessary to remove this stigma from the T&DJFL.
It is important that all members recognise the implications of any racial abuse given by players, officials, or spectators, of their respective clubs.
Severe penalties will be levied at individuals and clubs who contravene the above which could include dismissal from the League.
I thank the member clubs who follow good practice for their help and understanding on this matter. We need to maintain this within the T&DJFL. Please remind all your club officials, players and supporters re this matter.
Have a successful and sporting season.
