Southern League programmes Can't Post or Reply Privately

Judging by the 3rd post down from the ex editor of the Hayes and Yeading programme it seems like there could be changes regarding rules on programmes in the Southern League

What are the current rules, if any, regarding programmes in this league?
I am not aware of it being compulsory to issue in this league, unlike the Isthmian League.

Standardised rules down to step 6 apply at present?.

Certainly there seems to be more people questioning the requirement this season. Only this weekend there was one on Twitter about issuing in Welsh football at lower levels and the lack of sales.

Do think the 100 page magazine type programme at higher levels has run it's course and clubs should think about retuning to a 12 / 16 A5 programme for quid.

At lower levels if you have to issue you should be allowed to produce a good quality teamsheet. ie properly printed on headed type card.

Spot on regarding lower levels and i could go on all night giving reasons why but it's been well documented on here and most disagree so i won't!

At Southern League level, a 32 page black and white (with colour cover and occasional colour inserts) is more than sufficient. No reason for any club, even in the Conference to waste money trying to outdo the OED in size and volume.

A good approach is to do what Crawley Green have done for ages (and Biggleswade United) also do. A static outer shell with adverts and club info, and anything directly related to the game in question (fixtures, results, line-ups and League news) on a removable typed insert which shouldn't cost much to redo in the event of a postponement.

This has been standard practice for years outside the top two divisions of rugby union. I can't understand why so few non-league football clubs put their programmes together this way. Is it a stigma thing? Are issues of this type seen as somehow less valid? Interestingly, in rugby union, even at lower levels, programmes appear to be alive and well. Possibly because this (presumably much cheaper) approach is adopted. Given the size of some outer shells I've come across, the clubs must do pretty well out of advertising sales.

A lot of the Welsh League prgrammes have adopted this format and also allow entry by programme which I quite like.

AFC Llwydcoed charged 3 on saturday using the entry by prgramme method although the gentleman selling the programmes tried to charge me an additional 3 when I asked for an extra programme!

I think every club in the Welsh Cup has to issue a programme and also maybe the FAW Trophy although I might be wrong.

According to the rules for both competitions, that is correct. The rule is not enforced by the FAW however, and so if the club doesn't normally issue for a League game they probably won't for a Cup or Trophy game. This makes FAW Trophy programmes quite rare.
