Club Statement – Management Team

After an exceptional record both as player and player-manager, Ian ‘Iggy’ McGraa, has taken the difficult decision to step down from his role as Dock AFC Team Manager for family reasons and Assistant Manager, Shaun Holmes, will also be similarly stepping back from his role at the club. Whilst disappointed by the news, all involved with the Club completely understand and are respectful of both Ian and Shaun’s decisions, respectively.

We would like to take the opportunity to place on record our sincere thanks for everything that both Iggy and Shaun have achieved and the remarkable success that they have played a major part in. Whilst standing down from their managerial roles, both Ian and Shaun will remain involved in the club in some capacity and hopefully will carry on playing their parts in continuing to contribute to our future. They’ll be a tough team to follow.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Latest Information

On Monday 17 May, as part of the next step of the Government’s roadmap out of national lockdown, there will be further changes to the restrictions on ‘non-elite’ football. Our guidance has therefore been updated to reflect this.

This updated guidance comes into effect on Monday 17 May and until then all participants should follow our guidance for Step 2 which can be found here. You can read the Government guidance here.

The key changes to be aware of for Dock AFC are:-

From Step 3, spectators will be permitted to view events on both public and private land but need to adhere to social distancing rules and social gathering limits set at groups of 30 outdoors and six people/two households indoors. Please note that multiple numbers of these group sizes are permitted as long as social distancing rules are followed.

It is extremely important that clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents, carers, and facility providers continue to strictly follow both the UK Government’s latest guidance on COVID-19 and respective bespoke guidance documents from the FA. Any incidents of non-compliance should be reported to the local County Football Association.

Covid Latest Information

The Government has confirmed that on Monday 12 April we will enter step two of the roadmap.

The guidance from The FA has therefore been updated to reflect the changes to national restrictions. The key changes to note are in relation to spectators, use of changing rooms and outdoor hospitality.

As organised sport can resume, all participants may travel to games but should avoid travel at the busiest times and routes, as well as minimising any unnecessary journeys where possible. All participants must follow the Government’s guidance on safer travel. Participants should note that this guidance will be updated as we move through the different steps of the Government’s roadmap. All participants should therefore regularly review this guidance to make sure they are following up to date information.

Changing rooms
Changing rooms can be used as part of step two of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown. However, participants should minimise their use of changing facilities where possible. Toilets will be allowed to open, 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after training and/or matches.

On 7 April, the Government updated its guidance in relation to spectators. This confirms that at Step Two and Step One B, spectators are not permitted to attend sporting events taking place on private land, other than adults needed to supervise U18s that they have a responsibility for or providing care or assistance to a person with disabilities. They should maintain social distance and not mix with other households. This does not prevent people from viewing recreational or organised sport that is taking place in a public space, e.g. a park, at Step One B or Step Two, in groups of up to six people or two households. However, sporting events that are intended to attract spectators (including ticketed football matches), or events that are likely to attract a significant number of spectators (e.g. matches that would attract a large crowd) should not take place in a public space, or on private land, until step three.

It’s extremely important that clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents, carers, and facility providers continue to strictly follow both the UK Government’s latest guidance on COVID-19 and respective bespoke guidance documents from the FA.

Last Man Standing Rules

Dock FC are regularly running Last Man Standing competitions where each competitor will pick a team from a full round of Premier League fixtures. If your team win their game you go through to the next round, lose or draw and you’re out of the competition.

It’s very simple to participate, you only have to enter once ahead of the start of the competition and then just text your entry each week, don’t worry we’ll remind you each week that you have to submit your entry.

You can enter online through a direct message via Twitter to @dockafc or Facebook – Dock AFC or via Text Message to all club committee members or players.

For more information or to enter for the next competition, please contact;

@dockafc – Twitter (via Direct Message)

Dock FC – Last Man Standing Rules

1. It’s simple; just pick the winner of one English Premier League match each round of fixtures (full rounds only). If your selection wins then you progress to the next week, lose or draw and you’re out.

2. Pay your £10 entry fee before Week 1 — no need to pay again.

3. The prize fund will compromise of roughly 80% of entry fees received, whatever that may be. The remaining approx. 20% of entry fees will be donated to The Dock FC to support the running costs of the club for that season. (This is subject to change)

4. You may not pick the same team to win more than once during the tournament, so you need to be tactical about who you pick and when. If the tournament progresses past 20 weeks and the remaining competitors have already picked every available team once then the process will start again.

5. All selections for the forthcoming weekend’s games must be made and received by WhatsApp in the bespoke DOCK LMS Group or to Matty Carlin direct no later than 2 hours before the first match within that specific round kicks off.

6. Once a selection is made, you will have the ability to change it via WhatsApp until the deadline. We do encourage that selections are made via Direct Message where possible, particularly in the latter rounds.

7. Should you forget to make your selection in any round or select a team you’ve already chosen before, you will automatically be assigned the first Premier League team that you have not already selected in alphabetical order. Once a team is automatically selected, you will not have the ability to change the selection.

8. In the event that any match involving a team you have selected is postponed or cancelled for any reason, you will continue to the next round. However, that team will no longer be available for your selection. (Please refer to COVID-19 specific rules regarding postponements)

9. If the competition has not have reached a conclusion by the end of the current season, the Last Man Standing prize and competition will be paused and recommence during the following season with the remaining participants.

10. The game will take a break during weekends when the Premier League are affected by International fixtures, FA Cup rounds or when a full list of 10 fixtures isn’t scheduled.

11. Last Man continues until only one person remains and wins the pot. Should two or more participants remain standing and all are eliminated in the same week, the Last Man Standing prize will be rolled over to a new competition.

Rollover Rules

Existing Players who wish to be included in the new competition which will contain the Rollover prize fund must pay their £10.00 entry fee as normal.

New players are welcome to join however the cost for new Players is £20.00 due to the Rollover fund being carried forward.

COVID-19 Rules

If there are 2 or more fixtures postponed due to COVID-19, the entire round of fixtures will be null & void and selections for that round will be moved to the next set of available full fixtures and competitors will be asked to make a new selection.

If only one match is postponed prior to any of the other fixtures commencing, competitors will be asked to select a team from the remaining 9 fixtures, if time allows. Alternatively the Gameweek may be null & void, a decision on this will be taken in the event of any further postponements due to COVID-19.

Due to the amount of postponements during the 2020/21 season, we have taken the decision that whilst COVID is still prevalent to use the Premier League Fantasy Football Gameweeks schedule, meaning that there may be more that 10 fixtures during one game week and some teams may play more than once. The same rules still apply that you can only select each team once.

We would like to remind all competitors that these are very uncertain times that we are living in and COVID-19 rules and regulations are forever changing therefore we feel that the above guidelines are fair for all and nobody is gaining or losing an advantage in either scenario. The aim of this competition is for enjoyment and that’s what we hope to deliver.

Happy New Year
