A reminder to clubs that this year the 2020 “trial rule” for substitutes in this League will be operational as stated in 9.3a of the rules published on the website.

Clubs will be allowed to use substitutes. Substitutes, from the same league club only, will be permitted if they are from a team playing in the same division or lower. The team requiring the use of substitutes must have a minimum of 9 players registered to play for it, otherwise substitutes will not be permitted. Substitutes must be clearly marked on the result card submitted to the league stating the name of the team with which they are registered.

Under this trial rule there is no restriction on the number of times a substitute can play for another team provided the above criteria have been met.
