Cup Final FAQs
Yes. The programmes will be available for spectators, players and officials on the day. We strive to provide the best programmes as souvenirs of your Cup Final; and the information in the programme will only be as good as what you provide. Remember that you must also meet the deadlines set by the Association for the information to be included in the match day programme. 

If you would like more information on the programme, please call us.

Yes, we aim for an official photographer to be present at all Cup Finals. Photos of the match, presentations and team pictures will be taken according to photo consent by the competing teams. These images are then made available in the days after the match for players, club officials and supporters to download free of charge on our Flickr page. 

The Association will provide the actual match balls, but the club will be responsible for providing its own training footballs, which should be gathered up and placed in a bag just prior to kick off to ensure that they are not used during the game.
Teams are very welcome to have team mascots, but if the mascot is a child, a responsible adult must accompany the mascots on arrival at the ground, supervise them throughout and also take a position at the side of the pitch in order the escort them off the pitch once the handshakes are complete. Passes will not be given to mascots. They will be required to pay the child’s admission fee but they will, of course, each be given a souvenir programme.
After the game has finished, the official trophy and medal presentation will take place. The presentation usually follows this order:

1. Match officials
2. Runners up
3. Winners

Somerset FA provides 16 medals for each team and therefore it’s important that the players who played in the final go up to receive their medals first. Any players who are dismissed from the field of play will not be permitted to collect their medal on the pitch as part of the official presentation ceremony. Depending on the nature of the dismissal, an Association official may come to the dressing room after the game to give the player his medal, but the Association reserves the right to withhold the medal if the offence is serious.

After the medals are presented to both teams and the officials, the trophy will then be handed over to the winning team. A ‘winners’ banner will be erected on the pitch and our official photographer will take pictures of the winning team behind the banner. 

Food is then provided in the clubhouse for both competing teams and the match officials.
