DIRECTIVE 35

PLAYER ELIGIBILITY FOR CUP COMPETITIONS 

A player shall not be deemed to be eligible to play for any team in any league cup competition semi-final or final unless the player has made 3 or more appearances, in total, for his team in the current season of the Solihull and District Oakbourne League (The total of both divisional and cup competition appearances) or has played the two games prior to the semi-final or final match

At the League Council discretion, when circumstances require, quarter finals and/or semi-finals are classed as "round matches" where the 3-game ruling does not apply. 

Further: If a player is deemed, by the committee, to have already appeared in a specific cup competition for another team within the league (in the same season) that player will not be eligible for further appearances with his new team, this includes if a team forfeits its position within the league during the playing season (if a team folds)

No dispensations will be granted for any players for semi-finals and finals

All cup competitions are individual cup competitions.
