"Wotz a Tagline...?"
Posts: 1,422
I play 5-a-side footy every week with a bunch of mates, and great fun though it is, there is something of a dispute between a few of the lads concerning the exact rulings. So my question is thus:

We know players are not allowed within the goalies area, but to what extent?

Some say that a player can swing a boot into the goalie area, so long as the foot that you are standing on does not cross over the line. Others say that nothing at all is allowed to cross the line.

Can any of you guys shed any light on this? And preferably, does anyone know of a link to a ruleset on a site where this issue is addressed? Cheers! :)

As an 'old five-a-side' referee, any encroachment within the 'D' is disallowed and a penalty awarded, if this happens to be a defender. The same applies to the attacker, but obviously a 'free kick' is awarded. This also includes 'swinging feet'. Any help:)
