Devon FA Annual General Meeting 2019

Devon FA held their Annual General Meeting on Saturday 8th June 2019 at Boringdon Park Golf Club in Plymouth.

The AGM was kicked off by Devon FA’s President, Mervyn Benney. The meeting included the submission of the County FA’s statement of accounts, along with several proposed rule amendments ahead of the 2019/20 season. In the rule amendments, it has now been approved that from the start of the 2019/20 season, no extra-time will be played in any County Cup match. This will save pitches of wear and tear, reduce player injuries due to tiredness and will leave clubs more time for hospitality and travel.

After the rule amendments, there were several presentations:


Above - Charles Nosworthy Award (East Area) – Willand Rovers


Above - Charles Nosworthy Award (West Area) – Signal Box Frankfort U12 Girls


Above - Charles Nosworthy Award (North Area) – Woolacombe FC


Above - Charles Nosworthy Award (South Area) – Marldon Youth
