RULE UPDATE

By Jonathan Scargill

Sub Rule Changed

The Rule regarding substitutions was amended at an Emergency General Meeting on Thursday evening.

The new rule is as follows;
NAME FIVE SUBSTITUTES
USE (UP TO) THREE SUBSTITUTES

Once a player is brought off his game is over.

Basically, the League has reverted to the old rule used for many seasons before this one.

To clarify, if a player is withdrawn during a substitution, he cannot re-enter the game.

THIS RULE WILL TAKE IMMEDIATE EFFECT AND WILL BE IMPLEMENTED ON SUNDAY 30th SEPTEMEBER AND CONTINUED THROUGHOUT THE SEASON.

The vote was 75% in favour of 3 from 5 and 25% in favour of 5 continuously 'rolling' substitutes.

If you are in any doubt about this amendment, please contact the League Secretary.
