Goal kicks leaving the penalty area

Post by KRO »

Is the rule change where a goal kick doesnt have to leave the penalty box before being touched by the defending team being applied by FFSA?

Was at a game yesterday and it was weird seeing it.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

There is confusion with this rule among referees, some are allowing it, some are not ?
Is it possible for referees association to let all Refs know that players are allowed short goal kicks now ?
Watching a womens game last Sunday one particular ref did not get the email, regarding the change, confusing players and spectators.

Surely it won't be changed until next season, you can't change a rule mid season.

Why would the ref say don't do it again, if it's within the new rules?

Who knows? They are a law unto themselves sometimes.

Hadn't thenkeeper flicking the ball and catching a headed back ball been classed as circumventing the rules re a backpass?
