The scoring team declaration is for your scoring athletes only, and should be e-mailed to the host club at least 24 hours in advance so that details can be pasted into the score-sheet in advance to help the scorers. Either the word version or the Excel version can be used. A hard copy must then be handed in at the start of the match with any changes highlighted.
The names must be typed into the document, not handwritten and should be in the format “Jemima Wilson”. (No initials or just firstnames please)
Scans of handwritten sheets, or Pdf files, are not acceptable because the data cannot then be copied and pasted into the scoresheet.
There is now a separate declaration sheet for your non-scorers in order to make life easier for match scorers and that also can be e-mailed to the host club so that they can enter them into the database.
Please ensure that you use the correct new version of the scoring software, and that you use the appropriate version for manual or electronic timing.

How does the East Anglian T&F league work?
The league is for all athletes in each member club, aged 10 up to Seniors, and athletes compete in their own age-group, with each age-group scored separately as a “mini-league” and also the overall totals aggregated to give an overall match result.
EAL matches currently commence at 11.45am and aim to finish at around 5.30pm, and are always on Sundays.
There are nine age-groups in each match. Under 11 Boys and Girls (this is for fun only and is not a scoring age-group), Under 13 Girls, Under 13 Boys, Under 15 Girls, Under 15 Boys, Under 17 Men, Under 17 women, Senior Women and Senior Men. ( Under 20 Women and men compete as Seniors)
Each club can enter the permitted number of scoring athletes into each event in an age-group. Non-scoring athletes are also permitted in most events, and these provide the opportunity for new athletes to get a registered performance for future team selection, or for athletes who are already in a scoring event, to do additional events.
How do the Trophy finals work:
The top 8 clubs from each age-group contest the final. Each club qualifies for the final by individual age-groups aggregate points score. Therefore a club can qualify for any one or more age-groups. No non-scorers in the final but otherwise the same range of events with “A” and “B” string competitors.
How many events can each athlete compete in during the match?
All matches are run under UK Athletics rules, which permit any athlete age 11 – 16 to compete in a maximum of three individual events plus a relay on any day, athletes aged 17 – 19 to compete in 4 individual events plus a relay on any day, and Senior athletes to compete in as many events as they wish, but UKA restrictions on particular age-groups also apply.
