12(a) IN-SEASON TRANSFERS
Should any player wish to transfer from any one team competing in the Solihull and District Oakbourne League to another team who are also competing in the league, he should request that the team for which he currently plays de-register him.
REFER TO DIRECTIVE (11a) REGARDING THE DE-REGISTRATION OF PLAYERS, PLEASE.
it must be noted that no team member within the Solihull & District Oakbourne Football League will be allowed to play for another team within the same league if the player owes fees or fines to any team within the league, and the league will then effectively suspend the player until such time as any debts are cleared.
If a player has taken part in a specific cup competition for one team in the league, in any one season, he will not be eligible to play within the competition for another team in that season. Notably, the Presidents Trophy, which is played for by all teams in the league and the Super Cup + Alan Walker Cup + John Smith + Marlene Ashley Competition and any other trophy competition that is played for by individual divisions. Any further cup competitions that are staged by the league throughout any given
season are covered by the same ruling.
There is a fee, payable by player or club, when a player is de-registered from one member team and subsequently applies to join another within the same playing season. (See Directive 11a)
12(b) CLOSE SEASON PLAYER MOVEMENT
At the end of each season, each player is considered a free agent and may choose to sign for whatever team he wishes in the season ahead. However, if a player has outstanding debts with any existing member team – that player will not be allowed to join any other member team within the Solihull and District Oakbourne league without discharging such debts.
At the conclusion of each and every season, the team secretaries may prepare a list of any players who owe anything to their specific team if they wish the league to make note of or act on this information.If team secretaries do pass this type of information on to the league, they must also, without fail, inform the league when debts reported to the league are cleared as players returning to the league after a break in seasons would still have their application, to join another team, refused should their debt remains within the league files.
