WorldNet 2002

WORLDNET 2002
It was intended that the 2002 event would take place in Edinburgh at Herriott Watt's Riccarton site. The facility was being transformed into the new academy for Hearts so we went back to Leeds again. After the Leeds 2001 event, I met with the Edinburgh administrator who (very nicely) explained to me that the refurb work on the pitches etc.. at HW was only just starting and she couldn't guarantee a booking for me for July of 2002. At this point we agreed that we would keep in touch and talk again re 2003.

I then checked out several other possible Scottish venues but to no avail, Stirling looked good but only had one footy pitch, other places couldn't help with the accommodation because of commitments to things like Edinburgh Festival. I did speak then with several other folk who have mentioned possible sites elsewhere in the UK - Mel put me in touch with a very good site in Swindon - again booked up for July 2002. (There are options for
2003 which depend on whether or not RC Lens can come up with a proposal to host the competition in France or not at their new academy.) Still with me?

At this point I took on board the large number of comments I had had about Leeds being a good venue for all sorts of reasons. I checked with the University and they offered me the same weekend in July (it fits in with something called Medieval Week). Sports Interactive are happy about this
and so are Roger and I (in spite of it meaning that Roger doesn't get to be that far away from the lovely Mrs Goodair for the weekend).

So that's it. We will be holding WorldNET 2002 at Bodington Hall Leeds on the weekend of July 13th/14th 2002.

Now down to the nitty gritty.

We have taken on board several comments from participants about this years tournament and these changes will be implemented:

1. No team will be knocked out on the first day (this was a big mistake on our parts as it totally defeated the point of the plate competition for the likes of Leicester et al). To achieve this we will be limiting the entries
to 48 teams. Anyone coming forward after that date will be put on a waiting list in case of either drop outs or us finding enough teams waiting to create the correct numbers for the second day.

2. We have discussed the catering arrangements with the University and we will continue to improve in this area.

3. We are considering the referee situation as we are now in contact with other groups of officials - especially from the Yorkshire area and we know that Chris from London has been training with two new lads. We will continue to work with the Boro refs, we will seriously look at ways of
increasing the numbers of refs and we hope to reaquaint ourselves with Sid and his two pals from the West Midlands.

4. All teams who were represented this year may enter one team for 2002 (depending on the number of entries at the closing date we may take a call for second teams but this is unlikely).

5. Entries close on December 1st 2001, which is earlier than previous years but which will enable us to ensure that the draw and format are dealt with earlier.

6. The entry fee for 2002 will be #175. For a full squad of 22 that works out at about #8 a head which is bloody cheap for a full weekend's fun and games on the pitch. We will aim to keep the accommodation costs at Bodington Hall the same as this year.

7. For 2002 we will be training our own first aiders for an appropriate recognised first aid qualification to take account of the increased number of minor injuries experienced this year. MJ Morgan from the Exeter list has
agreed to be involved with this as have all the existing co-ordinators. Any one else who is interested in joining this happy little band should contact myself off-list on info@boocock.net .

8. The spare pitches on the Sunday will be bookable for friendlies from Sunday morning and we will seriously consider providing a pool of officials
for this.

9. We will again have a draw on the Saturday night for day 2 as this proved one of the most popular items over the weekend.

Entry fees in the form of a cheques for #150 made payable to the IFA should be sent to:
