Sussex County FA [Trophy Rules]
3 weeks ago
By Paul Preston
Omission from Trophy Rules could provide player qualification questions.
The Sussex County FA contacted the League to advise that there was an omission to the Competition Rules for the Sussex Womens Challenge Trophy.
The missing sentence from Rule 6C(i) relates to the qualification of players.
Any Player having played in more than 5 league and/or cup matches within the current season, for a team who qualify for the Sussex County FA Sunday Women’s Challenge Cup, shall not be eligible to play in this competition.
What does this mean in actual terms?
If a player plays for a team at a level which means that they are eligible for Women's Cup even though the team has not the competition, plays 5 matches or more and then transfers to a team eligible for the Women's Trophy then they are ineligible to play in the Trophy competition.
