Points system: Three (3) points for a win, one (1) point for a draw, 0 point for a loss. “Should a team fail to honour a fixture without a valid excuse acceptable to the Managing Committee, said team will forfeit the match and the opponent awarded three points and a score of two nil.” Any team which fails to start a match fifteen (15) minutes after the scheduled start without the consent of the Managing Committee will forfeit the match. If a team fails to honour two (2) fixtures in a season that team will be scratched from the competition, and may be omitted from the next competition.
9. If a team forfeits a match or the match is awarded to the opposing team then the opposing team would be credited with a three (3) nil score.
10. At the conclusion of the preliminary rounds, the first two in each group will advance to the next round. Should there be a tie for any place, goal difference, then most goals shall be used to break the tie. Should the tie remain, there will be a play-off to determine the winner.
