New rule changes to make team line up more consistent

 Last season particularly in Division 1, the regular team line became a farce as teams struggled to full a regular squad so this season the league is trying out a new rule to stop players “hopping” from one team to another. Guidance for the new rule is; “A player may play for one higher team only in each higher division for a maximum of three times in each half.  Where the higher team is in the same division as the one he is registered for, playing up is limited to one occasion only in each half.”    Click here to see the league rules and guidance notes
