(The reports are not accessible from the "Complete Club Schedule" page, but only from the schedule page of a specific team.) If more than 18 players appear on the match report, the 18 players on the game roster must be identified. If a player is "playing-up" from another ECNL team, that player’s name should be hand-written on the form if it does not appear on the form already. (Click here for a tutorial on printing game reports.)
The home team is required to supply the game report for each match.
Match reports must be checked for accuracy by a team rep from each team, and a Player of the Game nomination from the coach of each team must be completed after each match.
Field Marshals will collect the match reports and turn them in.

SCOUTING SCHEMATIC FORMS: Scouts from the ECNL Player Identification Program and from US Soccer will be attending many of the matches this weekend.
