The Executive Committee are aware of comments appearing on a Facebook Group complaining against their recent disciplinary action against a specific team in the League.

The Executive rarely comment on discipline cases and their outcomes, but in this instance a comment is necessary.

The Executive act for the benefit of all teams within the league, and does so in a manner of honesty, integrity and fairness.

The outcome letter which has been shared clearly shows the thinking behind this decision, and the Executive Committee are happy to confirm there was some considerable time and effort investigating, and then discussing the issue which had been raised.

No-one from the team concerned accepted the invitation to attend the Committee meeting.

The final decision was not taken lightly, and it was done so in the hope that this team would play within the rules in future.

Skittles is a great game, the rules are there for everyone to ensure the season runs smoothly and enjoyably within a framework of competitive fairness, but strong enough to pull teams up when they fall outside of the rules in question.
