League approves early starts to help clubs combat the energy crisis

By Ian Townsend

Pitching In Isthmian League clubs will be allowed to kick off Saturday matches early

The Pitching In Isthmian League has confirmed that early Saturday kick offs will be allowed during the forthcoming season.

Chairman Nick Robinson has written to all clubs to advise them that, in order to reduce energy costs, particularly those related to floodlights, they are permitted to bring forward Saturday kick off times so long as both clubs agree.

Decisions should be made between both clubs, the League Office should be informed as early as possible, and changes should be publicised to ensure that players, officials and supporters can have time to make appropriate plans.
