The County has received a number of questions from Clubs regarding the recording of games played on the RFU Game Management System( GMS) over the past few weeks.
These have revolved around ‘claiming’ missing games for season 2018/19 which can be done but have to be carried out by a dedicated Fixture Sec or Assistant or Ladies and Girls Fixture Sec or equivalent. (information on the guidance document). The correct season filter ie 2018/19 or 2019/20 needs to be used to achieve this.
We have also received questions on whether if a fixture is claimed for last season and the opposition don’t approve – what happens? The answer to this is that if it’s not acknowledged within 7 days the system automatically credits the game to your club.
Further key dates relating to completing indicative games played figures for both the 2018/19 and the 2019/20 seasons will follow towards the end of November or beginning of December.
GMS Team Management Module FAQs
What is the GMS Team Management Module?
- This provides all clubs with a “one-stop-shop” to view and manage fixtures for all their teams.
- It is not a fixture arrangement tool (this should be done by telephone or email as has always been the practice) but can be used to confirm the match arrangements and record results. It can also be used for just recording results and, therefore, it is not too late to record all the results of the matches played by your club teams since the beginning of this season.
