Sin bins will be trialled in MJSL

THE Manchester Jewish Soccer League will introduce sin bins for the coming season.

The announcement was made during the annual meeting at Bury Synagogue.

It means that any player who receives a yellow card for dissent will have to leave the field for 10 minutes.

The FA is trialling the rule for all Step 7 and below clubs voluntarily this season, with it becoming mandatory for the 2019/20 season.

Also announced at the meeting was the addition of David Nadler to the committee for a fourth time as minutes secretary, and a dramatic reduction in registration fees.

Rather than a cost-per-player, there will now be a one-off fee of 125 for each club.

It means that any squad over 14 players will be saving money compared to previous seasons.

There will also no longer be a limit on how many players a club can register.

Reich FC and Sedgley Park Celtic will receive a fine for non-attendance of the annual meeting.

Although there are rumours that Sedgley may not be part of the MJSL when the season starts on September 2.

After a controversial debut season, which saw several managerial and player suspensions, a source close to the club told Sportsworld: Its a mixture of no management and a lack of commitment from the players.

I dont think its going to happen, which is a shame because we could have challenged for the league again this season.

MJSL bosses would not comment as no official communication from the club has been received.

The season will end on Thursday, May 30.
