'Senior' Players

13 posts in this topic

could somebody just clarify how many senior players can play for a combination team if their parent club (SWPL West/East/Prem) do not have a game? is it 2 or 3 ? quite a vague rule / law as far as i can see but having witnessed a few games recently and done a head count some teams seem to be playing 2, and others 3?

Could someone also please confirm what constitutes a 'senior' player these days

a player who has played 5 or more games in the combo and above?

I thought that was the old rule and that it has changed. Something to do about playing at a higher level within 8 days or something?

Combo Rule was (2012 season), 

" A team shall not include more than three players who have taken part in a more senior competition match during the current season, unless a period of 8 days has elapsed since they played. For the purpose of this Competition a more senior competition is one at Step 7 or higher in the National League System"

Not sure if it has changed now, I thought it been removed all together and only applied to 'higher ranked players' playing in Dutchy and Trelawney Leagues? Certainly in the National League system there is no such rule.

In east Cornwall league you can have as many peninsular level players playing in your east Cornwall side as you like. It's only take effect when dropping down to duchy league when the peninsular and east Cornwall players are classed the same level.

There is no longer "senior" or "junior" status in Cornish football. Leagues outside of the NSL (Recreational Leagues below Step 7) are ranked from Combination/East Cornwall down to lowest division of Trelawny/Duchy.

I see you have said this before, so what do you refer to players as for the rule? Only 'x amount' of step 7 can play in a step 8 match?

But Combo sides and others below Step 7 are allowed to play in the "Senior Cup".

Apparently that's the only time the terms snr and Jnr are used now.
