    • They won't have offered you a course when they sent the NIP because they don't know who was driving until you tell them.   If you are eligible for a course they will almost certainly offer it - irrespective of whether you've refused one in the past.  If they do offer you a course, I think you'd be daft not to accept it.  (I understand many drivers refuse because they think they'll be treated like naughty schoolkids, but apparently it's not like that and most people find them very useful and learn something new.)
    • Thanks. Sound advice again. I will tread carefully.    I have checked the first correspondence that they sent to me and there is no sign of an offer of a speed awareness course, I do remember being offered one a good few years ago but did not take that up at the time. That may be the reason for it not being offered again.     Looks like my only option now is to shut up and pay up.    Thanks for your input which is much appreeciated.

    • Think they would be silly to appeal as a more forensic look at VCS MO and shenanigans could turn round and bite Simon on the bum.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Does anyone know the rules governing match abandonment in football?.

Our u14s side played yesterday,and with 3 and a half minutes to go,the ref stopped the game due to hail,he said he would wait 5 min and see if incliment weather would continue,tjhe hail stopped almost as soon as it started,and it was just raining.The ref then decided after a little persuasion from the opposing teams manager,to abandon the game,saying that the boys were too cold and wet to play the remainding few minutes!.

Earlier on in the match,he kept the lads in for about 25 min because it was hailing,and let them out,already cold and wet through,to play almost a full half of football,so his argument(which was word for word the opp managers also)doesn't really hold up,and our lads wanted to finish the match,but obv the opp were losing and didn't want to continue,they even cheered when they heard we would most likely have to replay!!.

I was hoping someone here might know if we have to replay or if the result at the time of abandonment will stand?

My understanding of the rules are that as long as the game is abandoned with at least 10 minutes remaining then a replay is what happens. My sons teams has twice had managers of opposing teams take their team off the pitch with only 12 minutes left cuz they were losing and make something up about not being happy with the ref. So it looks like a replay will be organised

whoops sorry read the message wrong thought only 3 half mins been played (Ooh dear long day)

Then the result should stand i would certainly question it otherwise does your son play for a team in a league because you should be able to look online at the rules

sorry again for the misunderstanding

Hi. My brother doesn't know. Let me know when you're next in a game and I'll see if my brother's reffing it. If he is, you can reschedule and get a decent ref! [ouch]

Cant find anything anywhere,league or otherwise that says anything,only that abandonments will be reviewed by the commitee,and something about injustice,but nothing that clarifies either way,the ref didn't know himself and the league haven't got back to us yet,I was just hoping someone on here might know so that we can fight our corner with the league!

This is all I could find:



If any match is abandoned at any stage of the game the Management Committee shall have the power to deal with the matter at their discretion. The Results Secretary must approve all postponements. If you postpone a game without first contacting the Results Secretary, you may be fined. This applies to ALL age groups
