Saturday 25th August 2018

Registration and Timings
ALL players and coaches MUST be at the venue at 8.00am at the very latest. Please ensure all players have a good rest on Friday night as it will be a long day on Saturday. Whilst kick off is not until 9.00am, ALL players/coaches MUST be at the venue by 8.00am allowing the coaches to carry out the necessary preparations and avoiding any last minute chasing and running around.

8.00am – Players Arrive/Breakfast

9.00am – Matches Commence Promptly

Please note the new 2018/2020 SJFA kit is mandated on the day and players without the official kit will not be able to represent the SJFA on the day. We will not have any spare kits on the day.

  • TopBLACK (GK: Orange) 
  • ShortsWHITE
  • SocksBlack
  • Please do not forget SHIN PADS

Additional Clothing
In addition to the SJ kit / attire, please ensure the players bring necessary clothing (track suit etc) according to weather conditions.

Rules & Footwear
Please see here COEJ/MAMT Rules and Regulations.
Many of our players normally play with Rubber Blades and historically we have witnessed players from various teams/jamaats wearing these in MAMT and have not been stopped. However, all players normally wearing Rubber Blades , please also bring another set of allowed footwear as per chart attached. The last thing we want is to jeopardise our participation and efforts due to incorrect footwear. All players should read through the rules and familiarise themselves with the details.

Food & Drink
Whilst lunch will be served, please ensure players bring sufficient drinks/fluid/food of own choice in addition, as it is going to be a long day.

Those travelling with the coach will receive information separately with reference to timings.

Parents Involvement
SJFA has always enjoyed a massive support from parents during the games and we are confident this tournament will be no different. We need your maximum support to lift the players and the teams. However, SJFA would like to send out a humble request to all parents.

  • During the games, whilst cheering, please be mindful that the coaches are giving the directions to the players and we need to respect that. Amongst all noise and cheering, it is difficult for the players to differentiate who the call is coming from and hence the message can be diluted and it can cause confusion. The coaches would have set a game plan and the players need to follow that only. Therefore, please bear this in mind when encouraging and driving your children.
  • In between the games, when the coaches are talking to their players and preparing them for the next game, we are kindly requesting the parents to allow them space to themselves.
  • Our coaches will be under pressure during the day and will have to make numerous decisions. Please do rest assure they will try their utmost to take the best decisions possible and we request parents to avoid any form of intervention.
  • Kindly read through the SJFA Parents Code of Conduct.

As per usual, all SJFA players/coaches/parents are ambassadors of Stanmore Jafferys and we expect the highest standards of Akhlaq throughout the games, on and off the pitch.

Selection Process
The coaches have spent numerous hours going through the selection process. Several factors have been taken into consideration and they have made a final decision to the best of their judgment. SJFA  fully supports and signs off the final choice and we are sure everyone, players and parents alike, will respect this choice.

If you have any queries, please contact us at

Medical Equipment
Inshallah we pray there are no medical emergencies, but to prepare for this we have decided upon the following;

  • It is compulsory for the player to bring any medication or emergency medication he requires on the day with him clearly labelled.
  • This may be inhalers with a spacer mask if required, Epi-Pens, anti-histamines etc.
  • He has to show this to his respective coach on the day. Please note he will not be allowed to play until his coach has had sight of his medication.
  • It is important that the medication is accessible to him on the day, hence it should be clearly labelled and with him throughout the tournament.

Emergency Contact Numbers

  • Sarfraz Valjy – 07984 003005
  • Abbas Khatau – 07917 771528
  • Mohamed Valjy – 07904 059070

SJFA will have dedicated personnel for photography/video and will publish the material on SJFA social media as per usual protocol. Anything that parents capture over and above the SJFA material, please do share with us so that we can filter and publish a selection from this as well. Kindly contact after the tournament and we will advise process of sharing.
